I have been offered Cliff Lee and Alfonso Soriano for My Matt Kemp and Carlos Lee. I would also be losing a dollar in the deal. Would you do it looking at the scoring or stand pat?

I'm personally having a problem with Lee so I would keep Kemp but I think I would try to get Soriano

Is this a keeper league?
Normally, i don't like trading a stud bat for a stud arm.
But Lee looks big in this format.

lee does get more singles doubles and triples but soriano has more total bases due to his number of home runs. my only worry for you is that soriano does strikeout more

I'm actually not a huge Soriano guy ... he leaves you hanging with an injury or just goes on offensive vacation for long stretches (like Carlos Beltran).

That said, I think it could be worth doing to get Cliff Lee. I also think Carlos Lee isn't such a bad guy to move to Soriano, as they both have their ups and downs. I love dominant pitching and the Phils offense stands to improve once Utley and Brown are there so I lean yes on this.

Interesting...

I think I would do this. Yes, there are concerns with Soriano's injuries, but Kemp is striking out at a rate that seems to point to some decline from where he is now. Cliff Lee is a stud, so I see you getting the better side of this deal..

Thanks for looking at mine ;-D

I would do this trade even know it kills your outfield. I would check waivers for Joyce or another outfielder. Lee is a stud. He is struggling a little right now but when he finds it he is one of the best in the game. Good Luck!!

I would keep Kemp then. He's in his prime. No sense in getting way older.
