McGehee would slide into his 3B slot, I assume.

Whoops !+)

I suppose this is really a wash to me then.

on paper it's a great trade for you - but looking at your team, you'd have to decide:

Youk and Victorino/Rasmus
McGehee and Kemp

I'd go for the first option!

I wouldnt trade Youk. Hes teh best player in the deal and hes going to be a top 3 3B this year.
I have no faith at all in Kemp. He has shown no work ethic or will to improve, and I would be surprised if his his production ever matches his talent.
And yes, you should move Youk to 3b as soon as you can, Dunn to 1B, drop or bench Polanco, and use your UT slot as needed (plug in Pagan when you need steals, and whichever of the other guys is hot when you need HR/RBI

All thsoe views and little posts.

LOVE THE DEAL.... I could see myself losing Pagan over Polanco, who has assisted and helped me several times in the past. Call it sentimental value. Pagan has been on my team only to be dropped later.

Good luck.
