Shop CC and see what you can get. Keep Felix he is about as good as you can get.

I would aim for McCutchen but in the end be happy with Hamilton for Felix. CC and Cain is a good start to a rotation and either bat would be a huge help to you

I love Hamilton as much as anybody, but i don't understand trading the 2nd best keeper SP for him.

I agree. For McCutch I may pull the trigger, but in a keeper, I am not rushing to trade Felix a top 2-3 keeper pitcher for Hamilton who will be 31 in May and hasn't played more than 133 games in the last 3 years.

Thanks to all who contributed.

Wound up getting Hamilton for Sabathia and a 22nd rounder. Then was able to pick up Morse for a 13th rounder. Updated keepers:

1B- Miguel Cabrera
2B- Ian Kinsler
3B- Pablo Sandoval
SS- Troy Tulowitzki
OF- Josh Hamilton
OF- Michael Morse
SP- Felix Hernandez
SP- Matt Cain

The team that had Morse was loaded and he didn't make the cut for that team's 8 keepers, so he was just happy getting some value for him (although I'm sure another team could/should have offered higher than a 13.) Figured going from A. Jones to Morse was a solid enough upgrade that I could sacrifice the pick and let Jones go back into the draft pool.

Mainly because Sabathia and Cain can hold down a rotation in a 12 teamer for several more years and make you easily competitive.
