I finally like my pitching from the crap it was earlier. I believe in hitting over pitching, so I'm thinking of making a deal for another OF to solidify my team. However, I have Beachy, Wheeler, and Kluber
on the bench. Picking matchups is pretty stressful for me. I more than often pick the wrong person to bench lol.

A. Kershaw for Carlos Gonzalez (or something at this level)

B. Medlen for Cuddyer (or something at this level)

C. Just stay with what I have and pick up Willingham or Swisher to fill in for my last OF.

Post a link, I don't know if you actually need help or if you're just helping me from the kindness out of your heart lol.

I rate Medlen over Liriano. I might put Medlen/Rollins or Liriano/Medlen for Cuddyer, trying to prey on the guys need for SP.

A lot of people are hyping up Kluber, Gonzalez, Porcello, plus Hamels/Samardzija/Medlen doesn't seem bad. Then, I have the lottery ticket with Wheeler.

Who cares.  You have enough power already.  You need Kershaw more than Cargo.  He's your only true ace with Hamels struggling and Samardzija getting zero run support and Medlin on the bubble when Beachy comes back.  (He'll probably stay a SP but if he hits a rough patch he still could be sent to the pen later).  Your pitching is still too weak compared to your hitting.  And I tend to value hitting over pitching on the whole too.  But this is too skewed.  Without Kershaw you will tank your season I believe.

I agree.like I know I can never trade felix for a hitter because my pitching would just fall apart.you need that ace to hold everything together.and Kershaw is yours.your offense is really good.Adding cargo is a luxury,keeping Kershaw is a necessity.
