Eh...I'm not so sure. I might not be as high on Kennedy as some. He's certainly a great talent, but I think it's a lateral move. Romero and Kennedy are kind of on the same tier in my mind.

These are the top available FA outfielders. Thoughts? Should I offer him Austin Jackson instead of Hunter?

I would say Martinez or Raburn specifically...I like Rasmus more than Carp for sure. Bay...I'm not so sure he's ever going to make it in NY. I'm worried.

I'd do that deal. There's lots of potential breakouts in the OF on the wire there, so you're probably not going to have too much trouble replacing Hunter. Even just a platoon of Cain and Rasmus may do the trick if one or both break out a little (Cain's had the better spring, but Rasmus could still surprise). Anyway, Hunter isn't a big enough deal that I don't want the Kennedy upgrade there. Your pitching is already pretty sick for a 12-teamer though, so in general you may want to look at trading an arm for a bat somewhere when you find a good deal.

I think Radburn's superlative spring numbers end up look more like a mirage than an oasis. :-t
