[b]I give: Prince Fielder, Jeremy Hellickson, 5th round pick next year I get: Ichiro, King Felix, 4th round pick next year, I can also swap King Felix for Josh Johnson, if I want[/b]
Currently I have a lot of power, and could use some help in the hits/sb department... The SP improvement is obviously beneficial. I am currently top in the league in HR/RBIs, so maybe I could afford to lose Fielder. Is this a good deal? I am currently in 7th place in 12 team league, but only 10 games back from 1st. I think I have one of the best teams in the league, although it doesn't quite show in the standings. I'm also using a committee right now for 2b/ss, but the players I have are playing very well for now, so I am pretty satisfied for now with those positions... Leave a link and I'll respond ASAP. Thanks!
Here's my team:
3 player keeper league, daily transactions 12 team, h2h. YAHOO league. hits, runs, hr, rbi, avg, stls wins, k's, era, whip, k/9, saves

Wow, this is a tough one. Normally, I would say that if you're getting the best player in the deal you should make it. However, it's debatable as to who is getting the best player. Prince Fielder is a MONSTER. I realize you have a lot of HR power, but losing him is a huge reduction in your offensive production.
King Felix is obviously a great pitcher, Top 5 even. However, he does pitch for Seattle. Last year I had him and he never got me any wins because of that fact. All the other stats are great obviously. If it were me, I think you have enough good SP and don't need to make this trade. I'm not a big fan of Ichiro too. Think about it, your trading Fielder and Hellickson (Who I really like too) for two Seattle Mariners? I would pass on this and aim a little lower for a SP so you don't have to give up so much. Just my opinion.
I do not like the deal. Yes, you have power, and yes, freeing up the utility is nice, but this trade is not enough value in my book. Hellickson is a damn good pitcher, and while he certainly won't have Felix numbers in K's, he could actually beat him in wins easily, while staying in the same ballpark in ERA and WHIP. Fielder is a titanic beast and should be treated with respect. The difference between him and Ichiro is enormous, and it's just not a good swap.
I don't like the deal, I think you should be getting more than Ichiro if you are selling high on both Fielder and Hellboy.
I wouldn't do the trade. Your pitching could use the help, but it isn't too bad, and the loss of one of the hottest hitters in the game just isn't worth it.
