Should I keep 6 or 7...I guess Phillips would be the last man out. I am not sure who will be in the draft until after the keepers are set.

I'd keep Pujols, Phillips, Hanley, McCutchen, Stanton, Kershaw, and Price. If you did the deal Pujols, Hanley, McCutchen, Stanton, Sabathia, Sandoal, and Price.

I'd say it depends on what is there for 2B when you would draft, and who was kept. You're losing youth in Kershaw to get Sabathia, but getting a younger 3B in Sandoal instead of an older 2B.

It's a toss up if there is a decent 2B you think you might get. If you don't think one would fall to you I'd say no.

Also, besides the keepers what if I asked for Jennings and CC for Kershaw. Would you do that?

If I read your posts right, In reality it would be CC and Pablo for Kershaw and losing a pick.

I would keep

1B-Pujols
SS-Hanley
CF-McCutchen
U-Stanton
SP-Kershaw
SP-Price

And hold on to the extra pick.

Its not a bad trade offer, I just prefer the monster Kershaw is and holding that extra pick.

Doesn't do it for me. I think I would prefer Pablo over Jennings.

I'd stay put while keeping
Price
Hanley
Pujols
McCutchen
Kershaw
Stanton
I'm not sure I'd keep a 7th, and take the pick.

If this were a redraft or full dynasty I'd do it, but with the limited number of keeps I would pass and keep the best keepers.

It all comes down to this. Can you draft a better play then Price with the 7th round pick then you would gain by not keeping him? If not, keep him, if yes, drop him.

As far as the trade is concerned (CC + Panda for Kershaw) that is a tough call. If it were my team I would try to get a better idea as far as which players are going to be available come draft day. Who is and isn't likely to be there would probably determine (for me at least) whether or not I would do the trade.

I agree with this concept, but would replace Price with Phillips. If he's offering CC+Pablo, then is it possible he's considering not keeping Pablo? If Pablo or guys of similar value are not going to be kept, then I would let Phillips go and take that extra pick. Definitely don't trade away Kershaw

Also, if there is a team that is hurting for keepers I would try to package Phillips and Hellickson for 1 solid keeper worthy player. Kind of same strategy that the guy offering you the CC trade is using - not sure if Phillips/Hellickson would be enough, but it may be worth a shot.
