I'd stick with Kemp. I feel that Kemp is definitely going to have a bounce back year and if you got rid of him your OF would really be lacking. If Kemp can give you .295 30 homers 100 runs, 90 rbis and 30 sb's this year (very high possibility of at least that) you don't gain anything form Fielders numbers. Stick with Kemp!

Very high possibility of AT LEAST .295-100-30-90-30? now that's a projection!

All that really needs to drastically change from last year is his average... he put up 28 homers and 19 sb's last year which was a definite 'off year'. Coupled with his 89 rbi's and 82 runs in an 'off year' i can definitely see him doing it.

Fairly even deal, but I'd stand pat since I prefer Kemp to Fielder overall. You don't have an elite 1B currently, but your options aren't horrible either.
