8 team league, cats as follows...

AB, R, HR, XBH, TB, RBI, BB, SB, GIDP, E, OFAST, DPT

APP, IP, HA, ER, BBI, K, QS, L, SV, BS, HD

I was originally offered the following trade...

Receive Ryan Howard, Phi 1B

Receive Michael Young, Tex 3B

Receive Zack Greinke, KC SP

Send Mark Teixeira, NYY 1B

Send Huston Street, COL RP

Send Stephen Strasburg, Was SP

For one, I'm not really much of a Greinke fan. I also would have to drop one of my position players in that deal, which makes it less beneficial, especially since there is a bigger drop off in the relief pitchers on WW. So I countered with the following offer...

Receive Ryan Howard, Phi 1B

Receive Michael Young, Tex 3B

Receive Cliff Lee, Sea SP

Send Mark Teixeira, NYY 1B

Send Mark Reynolds, Ari 1B/3B

Send Stephen Strasburg, Was SP

I've been trying to move Strasburg, as I feel like a lot of people would be enamored with the hype, which would work to my benefit...plus I'm still concerned about the potential for starts being skipped or innings being limited later on in the year when I would need him the most. I look at Tex for Howard as a slight downgrade...but Young for Reynolds as a slight upgrade. Swapping Strasburg for Lee is the main part of it for me. To get a stud pitcher, who I know is going to be consistent all the way through the playoffs, is what I'm looking for.

Is this a fair deal? Was I right to turn down the original offer? And beyond that...what other kind of pitchers could I target using Strasburg as the main piece in the deal?
