Last spot goes to Hellickson or Papelbon. Since you keep so many and you already have 5 very good starters, I'd go with Papelbon. Pretty sick team though.

I'm looking to package people for a 1B. Anything else I should target?

If you won the championship, hang onto the championship team. GiantsFan gets it. As for what else to target, I bet you could package a couple of mid-tier hitters for a stronger OF candidate.

Go with gf's recommendations.

1B isn't a big problem for you, you've got a few good options. Obviously if you can package a couple of guys for one of the true studs, go for it. Same feelings in the OF.

Can't find a thing wrong with GF's recs. When you have a powerhouse team like that, the thing to do is trade two mid-tier guys for a better keeper. Consolidate talent; if you have guys that you aren't keeping that would be keepers for other teams, it's an opportunity.
