Is it next year or 2011 or beyond?
If you are building for 2011, I would stand pat.
If you are building for 2010, I would rather have Cecil and McDonald who will both be up this year and getting some work.
The goal is contention for 2010 and beyond. As it sits right now my staff is missing a key piece and that is an ace. I have a few guys with that potential in Carmona, Morales, and Price but no one clear cut as of yet. I think that Arrieta could possibly be an ace as well.
That being said, this league being so big is won on having consistency through out the lineup and having a staff of 3-4 #2-3 type guys will just about lock up a championship. I think that Cecil and McDonald are more safe in that regard. Hellickson and Arrieta are more of a longer shot I feel.
