I'd stand pat on both offers. I'm simply not a fan of Ichiro, especially in a keeper league.

I'd leave all three on the table. I'm not sold on Ike Davis (and don't look at him as a big upgrade for you anywhere) and I'd MUCH rather have Ethier or Kemp over Ichiro in your format, IMO.

I'd target an upgrade at C and 2B, if I'm you. I'd have Loney starting at 1B and then target the best available CI (which could be Zobrist or Wiggy maybe...but...I'd keep my eyes open for upgrades there too).

I'd be tempted to shop Kemp "some". I think he's slightly overrated and if you can get someone to overpay, then great. But, I don't think you're in a position that you need to make wholesale changes or anything.

He actually came back with a Lind for Zobrist?

Lind is at that prime age and has better upside. The equalizer is Zobrist's eligibility at 2B. Tough call. If Zobrist is your 2B, you should have a top-10 2B. If you're playing him at 1B or OF, I'd rather have Lind.

(Help with my Prade/Utley issue?! Thanks!)

Probably stick Zobrist at 2B at the moment.

I could put Lind at 1B, Loney and CI and Wiggy at 2B(till I upgrade) if I do the deal.

I guess the question is, how much of a drop is Wiggy at 2B compared to Zobrist?
