Regarding Deal C:

Am I better off hanging onto Jonathan Sanchez and giving him Matt Harrison or can Harrison be trusted more than Sanchez? I want to move the bigger headache basically.

I would hang onto Harrison and deal Sanchez...never liked him and he is too inconsistent

Also, I thought I would add this...Why not package Hanson and Santos with Wandy for a Kershaw and a closer? Same advice you pretty much gave me, but I think it could apply to you, help solidify your 6 keepers having Kershaw being younger than Halladay.

also, check out my response to your thoughts on my post...

thanks

Yeah I'm not too sure why you want to trade Cabrera. I'd think deal C as Mariano would be a nice upgrade at closer for you.

I so wish I could. The problem is that Kershaw is in his last keeper year on a team that is not eager to deal, even though he is pretty much on the playoff fringes to say the least.

Good SP are really hard to come by, despite my many trade chips. the guy with CC won't deal him, I don't trust his carpenter though. The team neck in neck with me has ham els, Verlander and cliff lee but his staff evaporates after that so he won't deal. That's when I started thinking it might make sense for me to move my headache guys and try to reel in solid guys like Ogando.

The only reason the Cabrera deal tempted me is that I have prince whom I could plug in at1b and since we use 9 offensive cats then kemp would be pretty valuable. Moreover, I just don't trust Hanson right now. If I can move Hanson, Wandy and Sanchez I'd be satisfied. Any ideas?

This is not exactly what you were looking to do, but you could try to deal Hanson and Ethier for Kemp. then deal 2 of Harrison, Wandy and Sanchez for Ogando.

frees up a few spots to play with Free Agents.

Problem is that kemp is on my wife's team andnshe only wants Cabrera if she's giving him up.

I might be able to get her to take on Wandy and Hanson along with Cabrera. As for players she has that could be of interest: Kemp, Heath Bell, Masterson, Oswalt (iffy), chris Perez, ichiro, aramis.

Bear in mind she intends to keep some of those. We keep 6.

Alternately, the guy with Mariano and ogando has pence, whom I might be able to make a run at if I included Ethier in a deal but he's hesitant.

I could get Justin Upton and Ubaldo for my Wright and one of Greinke, Gallardo or Cain. I'm not wild about that.
