I love Kemp, and Sanchez isn't bad, but you can't do it.
Losing Fielder, Lester too much, and Bourjos is nice as well.
Better get Montero before it's too late, lol.

I would do it given your roster configuration.

Your SP is very deep. You could absorb losing Lester, and Sanchez is better than most people give him credit for, cleary not on Lester's level, but a solid 2-3 type SP.

You've got Carlos Lee to insert into the IF postion when Moreland is facing LHP.

Kemp is a monster and strengthens a so-so OF.

The only downside I see is Bourjos is your only steals guy. You can use your deep SP and trade for that.

Please help with mine.

even for just fielder and lester, youre giving up too much. for a 20 team league you're of is solid. idk how you managed to get cabrera, fielder, upton, and kershaw, as theyre all in my top 20. kudos. stick with whatcha got.

I like the deal. Kemp is better than Fielder. Lester is closer to Anibal then I think most people think. The last two players are about even. I think Kemp is close to the player we saw last year with a slightly lower BA. Even in Kemp's down year he was still a pretty good player. I am worried about Fielder in Detroit.
