I have made a few trades to shake up my team this offseason- first I gave up tulo for gallardo and a 1st round pick (we keep 10 players). I made that trade to reacquire a pick I had previously traded.
THEN i gave up Johan, Carlos Pena, and Chone Figgins in exchange for jose reyes. This made a lot of sense for me because I was not planning on keeping pena or figgins anyway.
Below is my team currently. I can keep TEN of these players. I am considering one of two moves:
1. Offering either Carlos Lee (or maybe alfonso soriano) in exchange for Brandon Webb (whom I think i could acquire for definitely soriano and possibly lee). I know the Webb owner is a fan of big name players and I think soriano might be slipping a bit.
2. Trading Jay Bruce for a young arm or maybe even a keeper slot from an expansion team (which i am really reluctant to do).
PLEASE tell me if is should go for WEBB, or maybe even HAMELS, or if i should just stand pat. I would also of course appreciate any advice about which ten players to keep as well. I WILL GLADLY RESPOND TO ANY POST. I thanks for the help!

I disagree. Looking at R&C's median draft position report, Soriano averages going 24th while Webb is 39th ranked. So, Soriano is going a round earlier, and you actually lose value. If anything, it should be Soriano for Webb and a throw-in.
For starters, I think Lee is an undervalued fantasy player, while Soriano is a tad bit overrated. With that as my thinking, I'd rather dangle Soriano and hold tight on Lee. I think I'd try and package Soriano and Dice-K for Lincecum if the owner is scratching for a back-end keeper. As far as the 10 I'd keep:
Bruce, Hamilton, Lee, Roberts, Soriano, Wright, Reyes, Soto, Gallardo, King Felix
I was torn between Victorino and Soto, but I ultimately chose Soto because I think the combo of Roberts, Reyes and the chip ins from the rest should be solid to compete in SB's. Good luck, hope that was of some assistance. Help with mine please?
