    I am weak on pitching so I traded Manny Ramirez for Josh Beckett and Mariano Rivera.

    Thoughts?

    Omg, can you say 0wnage?!? You just got screwed in that deal. Manny is a top 10 pick, and even though Beckett is having a good year and Rivera is known as a good closer that doesn't nearly measure up to Manny. What I've learned is you need to get great hitters (Manny for example), a few good closers, and fill the rest with the best pitching you can get at the time. Your hitters play on average about 6 days a week, your relief pitchers on average about 3 times per week, and your starting pitchers pitch an average of 1 time per week, even though every 5th week or so they will pitch twice. The most important players on your team are your hitters, sure you want good pitching, but no pitching is worth Manny unless your getting 2 great pitchers.

    Not bad as long as Beckett and Rivera can stay healthy.

    The clowns that are dissing your trade don't have a clue and clearly never win.
