It's fair but I wouldn't give up Kemp without getting a bat back and to be completely honest, I wouldn't even consider dealing him for anybody.

Only way I'd consider dealing Kemp in a 5-keeper league is if Verlander and Kershaw can be kept in a later round (or for less $) than Kemp. If it's just your top 5 players get kept then you're trading future years of Kemp + Price or CSantana for Verlander+Kershaw. Your pitching staff looks deep enough that you don't have to take away from your offensive advantage to help pitching.

Thanks for the advice. Yes it is 5 keepers from my lineup, so with the trade it would be:

Votto
Kinsler
Miggy
Kershaw
Verlander

I would lose one of Sandoval, Santana, or Price.
But I'm also concerned with this year. If trading Kemp could improve my chances of winning, I'd do it.

I still don't think I'd do that deal in a yearly league with your lineup, but it's close. The keeper part puts it over to top for me. Unless you substantially help this year's chance of winning I don't give up an elite hitter in that type of keeper league. I don't know that this trade really helps your chance of winning. I think you can get closer to those pitching stats by the kind of pitching depth you have and playing matchups than I think you could replicate the massive stats Kemp should give you from 1 OF spot. Personal preference, really. But it also hurts you in the future.

If I had Kemp, I would ignore any trade that involved him unless it's something ridiculously in your favour.
