2B Beckham
SS A. Ramirez
3B Sandoval
OF Braun
OF J. Upton
OF Werth
Util Youkilis
Util Markakis
Bn Lind
Bn Crisp

SP Liriano
SP Oswalt
RP Putz
RP Hanrahan
P Nolasco
P Bumgarner
P Kuroda
P Floyd
Bn Kennedy
Bn J. Zimmermann

Does this trade make sense for me?

I guess you're down on Beckett. He's been doing well in spring training, and my thinking was that he could be just as valuable as Oswalt.

I don't like it. I like Oswalt much better then Beckett. I just don't trust him.

Your team wouldn't change much either way. Kemp and Upton have about the same upside as do Oswalt and Beckett. Trade only if you have a personal preference for any player involved.

Agreed. Great opportunity to go with your gut here. Personally I'd stand pat as I like Upton over Kemp and Oswalt over Beckett. Not by a lot, though.
