CC Sabathia
Cliff Lee
Felix Hernandez
Roy Halladay

Any of them would be "worth" it. Being realistic, go for Hamels. Everyone still thinks Lincecum is going to duplicate his 2008-2009 stats (he's not...still great SP, but not the best), Halladay/CC/Felix/probably Lee are held too highly to be traded. Kershaw is only 23 and every Kershaw owner I know loves him, so he's unlikely. This leaves Hamels, who is having an excellent year, but may not have the aura everyone else on the list has. Keep in mind Hanson has been struggling lately, so hopefully he does well against the Giants next week.

The main problem you have is keeper restrictions. With only four keepers, quantity won't necessarily entice other owners. Getting Hanson and Price for one pitcher is a great score, but if the owner only wishes to keep one since he or she's got other good guys to hang onto, then a trade might be tough.

I agree that any of those pitchers would be worth it. You have to find the owner that is willing to move any of them for two guys that are a tier or so below in value. This owner will probably be one in contention that could use some extra innings to help him or her in the standings for this year.

Hamels....I think in the next 2 years he will be at the top of the list of starting pitchers in the league....he's nasty.
