Absolutely. I think Ethier and Gordon are pretty close in value where as Kershaw is way above Kennedy.

That is a complete steal. Do it before the other owner changes his mind.

same here, except gordan will spread his numbers throughout the year, either will get really hot and then get in a bad slump but numbers will be around the same at the end.


do the deal!

I'm still taking it. The difference between Kennedy and Kershaw is pretty big so it would take a pretty bad OF for me to not want to do this.
