As of this moment I actually need Prince's power more then Reyes's speed but I feel like I still have a lot of power, plus it would allow me to trade some of my OF speed for another needs...thoughts?

1B: Votto
2B: Utley
3B: Longoria
SS: Yunel
MI: Prado
CI: Prince
OF: Cruz
OF: Ethier
OF: Rasmus
OF: Bourn
U: A-Rod
BN: Gardner, Tabata
SP: Cain, Dempster, Gio, Norris, Scherzer
RP: Nunez, Hanrahan, League, Farnsworth, Madson

If I was confident that utley would play consistently I would say I don't like this. I still kind of don't. Because power is a lot harder to replace than speed. Grab Theriot for the days utley doesn't play? *shrug.

I don't like it. Kinsler is the worst guy to me, with Fielder the best.

I ended up taking it. I offered him Fielder plus a closer for Reyes last week, so IMO Fielder for Reyes is more then fair. Then it comes down to Utley versus Kinsler...Utley won't run anymore with his knee problems plus he's no lock for playing the whole year (which neither is Kinsler). They have similar skill sets, with Utley being more proven, but Kinsler is 4 years younger, so I took the trade. Plus, I've never been the biggest fan of Fielder, although he can be elite, but so can Reyes (and he has been back to form).

Thanks for the input though guys.

If you think Fielder = Reyes then I guess the deal is not bad.
I would take Fielder over Reyes anyday. Also with that lineup I would rather punt SBs, but that's just me. Utley stole a base last night, and he won't get you 30 steals but I see him stealing 15~20 bases.
I like Utley over Kinsler.
