I believe Kemp and Crawford will be pretty close the rest of the way through with the difference in steals making up for the difference in home runs. Assuming this isn't a keeper league I think Ubaldo is a good upgrade over Hellickson. Ubaldo looked good last start and should be able to right the ship soon enough. Hellickson has looked good his past few starts but could possibly face an innings cap later in the season. Pena and Gordon is a wash. So I would prefer the Crawford/Ubaldo/Pena side. ;-D

The Crawford/Ubaldo/Pena side. Kemp's better than Crawford (who's always been a bit overrated in fantasy), but I like Ubaldo quite a bit more than Hellboy for the rest of the year, and Pena quite a bit more than Gordon. That side is getting speed (Crawford) and HR (Pena), while on the other side Kemp provides both but Gordon not much of either.

I like Kemp and Hellickson... But this is a good deal. I'd rather have Crawford and Ubaldo the rest of the way. Good sell high, buy low, as you said. Good luck.

This is a tough call, pretty even deal.....the big key is will Ubaldo bounce back? and finish with atleast 15+ wins. I am a Ubaldo owner and really pissed.... :-{

Kemp better then Crawford
Pena equals Gordon pending on what you need 1B or OF
Hellickson right now is better then Ubaldo, but if he (Ubaldo) straightens out, its a Win Win.....
