I don't like the trade either, I don't think you get enough help to trade a potential keeper in Lester. As for the four current keeps, Cabrera, J-Up, Tulo for sure, then either Lester or Waino per your preference. If you can trade during the offseason try to package whichever one of those 2 SP will net you more to possibly upgrade Tulo.

Yeah, for what you're giving up, you're not getting enough in return - especially in a league with only 4 keepers, trading someone who you'd keep is a big deal. I think you've got to roll with who you've got.
I think Kershaw will be the best pitcher in fantasy baseball some day...sooner rather than later too.
If I understand correctly...you can keep any 4 guys on your roster as many years in a row as you want. If that's the case I'd do the trade you last posted but take out ARam and Johnson. Johnson will take a while to get really good...if ever. ARam is still showing power and should help a bit more than Johnson this year.
After the trade I'd keep: Kershaw, Upton, Tulo, and Cabrera. You'll end up losing a lot of good players. And I'd rather have Tulo than Upton cuz SS is much slimmer. So if you wanted to keep Wainwright than keep him over Upton...I assume you'll have a chance at getting some good pitching or OF's in the draft but there's no way you're getting an elite SS.
Hey man, thanks for the help with mine. I don't love this trade either, but I think getting Wainwright was huge. He is a beast and will obviously help your team. Also, def keep Tulow over Upton without a doubt. As you mentioned, finding a good SS is much harder than getting a solid outfielder.
