I wouldn't underrate Nathan's save opps in the second half. Santana and now Liriano are going to keep them in a lot of close games, but I would still make that trade.
So he countered... He wants both Nathan and Figgins for Teixiera... What do you think? Do I do it? I think so. I've got Figgins on the bench anyway, but I like his utility...
The interesting story behind Figgins, is that he drafted him. I traded for Figgins ins a deal to get Clemens... I had drafted Derek Lee, and once he got injured I picked up Nick Swisher, and then offered Derek Lee and Brad Penny in a deal for Chone Figgins and Roger Clemens.
So what do you think? Should I give up Figgins and Nathan for Teix...
My concern is Teix's power has suddenly vanished... You know... right after the steroids thing exploded in MLB's face. What if, you know?
