    Hi Les, glad to see you still going strong brother. I need your expertise once again. Here’s the trade I was offered:

    Get:
    Chone Figgins
    Clayton Kershaw
    Alexi Ogando

    Giving up:
    Dustin Pedroia
    Derek Jeter

    Figgins is obviously horrendous, but I have Placido Polanco and Angel Sanchez as backup 2nd basemen/SS.

    My best pitchers are Beckett and Britton, I really like Pedroia in the Sox lineup but I think Ogando makes this deal solid.

    Thoughts?

    That is tough. Giving up two two hurts you in average, runs, hr, rbi. sbs are offset by figgins. helps you in w, era, whip, and ks. so basically you’re robbing peter to pay paul.

    maybe you can deal pedroia straight up for kershaw so you help your pitching without doing too much damage to your hitting.
