I like Salome the best of the bunch. He plays catcher, and I think he has similar upside to Salty, and given Salty isn't a sure thing to stay at the position long term, I think he's a solid selection. I like the deals thus far this off season. As a Giants fan, I think Ishikawa's value is very limited, and short term. Villalona will ultimately play 1B down the line. Even if he never fullfills his massive hype, they'll spend money and sign a free agent power hitting infielder at somepoint in the next few years. So far so good, and target Salome for sure. Good luck. If you have a second I'd appreciate some help with a question of my own.

1) I think you've done well. The two guys you traded had very low upsides and you got back two very good pitching prospects.
2) My Rankings

JP arencibia, C, TOR (Rare power-hitting C prospect...already got it done in AA..I'm a big fan)
angel salome, C, MIL (High average and OBP at catcher. Could help out as soon as 2010)
nick weglarz, OF, CLE (power was a little down, but he looks very likely to become a solid MLB player)
adrian cardenas, 2B, OAK (Very solid 2B prospect, which is always rare)
peter bourjos, OF, LAA (I like him in your league - CF eligible with tons of SB potential...worth a flier, but might not make it unless he learns to walk)
michael taylor, OF, PHI (Beastly, but not real young and still pretty far away)
greg halmon, OF, SEA (very raw, big upside, but you'd be better off taking a more sure thing to make it)
aaron poreda, SP, CHW (Good prospect, but you don't need an SP)

Good C, 2B and CF prospects are worth their weight in gold in a dynasty like this. The problem is, it's hard to find one that has both upside AND a good chance of actually reaching it. I think Taylor and Halman could be beasts, but AAA is littered with guys like them who never could put it all together. I'd say go with one of the top 4 guys I listed.
