Here's my roster:

C Miguel Montero, Ari C
1B Kendrys Morales, LAA 1B
2B Robinson Cano, NYY 2B
3B Jose Bautista, Tor 3B, OF
SS Zack Cozart, Cin SS
OF Shane Victorino, Phi OF
OF Alex Gordon, KC OF
OF Melky Cabrera, SF OF
UTIL Nick Swisher, NYY OF
UTIL Paul Goldschmidt, Ari 1B
Bench Jesus Montero, Sea DH
Bench Erick Aybar, LAA SS

PITCHERS

I would do it, Daniel Murphy and Omar Infante are both solid players, plus you need a stud in your pitching staff.

Do you think I'm OK to drop Aybar and/or Montero at that point if I do it? I wasn't sold on Cozart after I drafted him, which is why I got some insurance in Aybar in the last round. And, I didn't realize Jesus Montero was going to take so long to become catcher-eligible in our league--I have Miguel Montero anyway, so, no big deal--but Jesus hasn't shown me enough to keep him on just as a DH.

Also, who would you take out of Infante or Murphy in our league with our categories?

I would not do it. Cano is early 1st round talent, Kershaw is early 2nd round. See if you can get him to throw in something else. If you do it, drop Lance Lynn for David Murphy.

I've been trying hard to get Kershaw myself but I know I wouldn't give up Cano for him.
Thanks for your help with mine ;-D

You win this by quite a large margin, IMO.

This I might do but I am not sure it really makes your team better. Your SP is fine and I would rather have the big bat.

I'm hesitant, too. But, I like Murphy and Infante, and think they'd be good in our OBP and SLG league.

What if I asked him to give me Motte for Aceves on top of all that?

As an aside, do you guys think I should hang on to Erick Aybar and Jesus Montero in our league? It takes 10 starts at catcher for Jesus to qualify, and I have Miguel Montero anyway.
