I first said Bay but I think you need to consider something here. No offense here but for a 10 team league your keepers are OK but not great and looking at your roster and by your comment that your team used to be better I would suspect that you have a high draft pick (assuming draft is in reverse order of '08 finish). If you have a really high pick I would look at the other teams roster and see if anyone has to throw a hitting stud back into the draft. If you can see that there will be better hitters than Bay available when you pick than I would keep Hamels instead of Bay.
Thanks. I did finish 4th and yes the draft is as you said. Im fairly confident that there will be at the least an equal bat available in the draft. I would have the 6th pick and over the past couple years if you get a whisper in the draft that pitchers are going to be taken quick everyone will hop on that train and leave me with a bat to get. That just a trend though. I suspect the only kept pitchers will be:
Shields (based on this guys team)
It still leaves some bats believe it or not so maybe keeping Cole is good and getting everybody going after pitchers leaving me a stud will work.
