If I had to choose one, I'd go with option 3 since I like Kemp. However, people are split on Fielder, and I am one of the ones who are extremely high on Fielder for the next 5 or so years. I see Fielder as a 40-50 HR masher over that span and with overall MLB HR output slowly dropping, I see him becoming a top 5 player during this period. I only think Hanley, Reyes, Miggy, and Pujols will outearn him.
I'd stick with Prince.

I don't think it's in your best interest to trade Fielder. You seem eager to though. His value is nowhere near its peak and he's still a young power hitter, a rare commodity. What's wrong with holding onto him? Why not try to trade Gonzalez instead?
While Fielder is a top young talent, I am concerned about his weight and believe those extra pounds will drag his body down over the brutal course of MLB seasons and shorten the length of his productive career. I think we may may never see another year like 2007 out of him. In a keeper league, I'd view him as a "trade high"commodity now and move him if you can find good value. You maybe need to hang on now to find a better deal than what's listed but Kemp plus another decent talent, such as an SP instead of Victorino, would be a good way to go, imo.
