I would do the trade, and keep McCutchen. But I would expect a decrease in his steals with him hitting third. I wouldn't expect more than 15 as his steals deceased a lot last year when he went to the 3rd spot in the lineup

Do the trade and keep Cutch. Teix is declining and I am not as high on Felix as others are.

i generally don't like keeping pitchers in leagues this small, and i think i can replace pitching easier in the draft.. im probobly going to do the deal though.. but between mccutchen and teixeira, i feel like tex's 15 more homers+more rbi can be worth more than mccutchens 20 points higher average and 10-15 extra steals

You can replace pitching easier, but not a young stud in Felix.
I would keep AM over a aging Tex.

I would not make the trade.
Jose Bautista is 31 years old. Tulowitzki is 27 years old.
Miguel will be 29 years old in April. Hanley is 28 years old.
I don't think Bautista can keep his level for as long as the others.
Hanley had a down season in 2011 for sure, but if you trade him now you're trading him at his lowest level, while trading for Bautista at his highest level.

as for the 3rd keeper I would have to go with McCutchen. still only 25 years old, hasn't yet reached his prime.
