I would possibly package Howard and Kennedy for a pitcher and maybe sneak Moore into your top 8.

stealing home,

please check out my post on whether to keep lester or kennedy. i'm not keeping michael young. would like to know your choice and why. viewtopic.php?t=436990

as for your keepers,

i'd definitely keep zobrist over bruce. zobrist's average line last 3 years:

.268, 19 hr, 89 runs, 86 rbis, 20 sbs. at second base. he is a no-brainer. bruce is only above average in 2 categories and he's an outfielder.

i'd keep kennedy over wilson. tiebreaker is the nl west.

I love the idea of packaging Howard and Kennedy for a true ace. Howard's numbers are dropping and I think there's only a limited amount of time before he becomes unworthy of keeping considering he plays such a deep position. I think he's the perfect guy to trade because he still has that huge name recognition but w/out the production value. I also like sneaking Moore into the top 8. I don't if Moore is going to be the next whatever, but I do know I want him on my team. The one change I would make from raiders_umpire's list if you were to deal Howard/Kennedy would be to keep Zobrist over Posey. I think Posey will be fine, but it might take him time to get back his swing. Zobrist's a 20-20 guy at 2b who also qualifies in RF. He also has the potential to qualify at a lot of other positions. I might even consider not keeping Howard (if you can't pull off a deal) and keeping Zobrist and Posey.

Please help w/ mine! Thanks! http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=437095

I'd keep Posey myself.
Kennedy + Howard for a Weaver + Votto combo or those 2 for
Hosmer/Haren, Freeman/Kershaw?

Unfortunately, I can't make a trade until the next season. But I had been considering trading Howard during last season. I like Zobrist and his multi-position eligibility. I'm going to want to pick him up in the draft. And the same goes with Posey too, if he has a good Spring.

I'd like to keep Posey too, but I don't think he's keep-able over any of the others I'm looking at. It is hard to think that his numbers and injuries make him draftable in the first 10 rounds. But I sure will look at him during the Spring and see if he's worth drafting.

I can't make a trade until next season, but I like your idea. I already own Votto.
