I have been offered the following: Miguel Cabrera, Justin Upton, Giancarlo Stanton, Cole Hamels and Stephen Strasburg.
In exchange he wants: Matt Kemp, Hanley Ramirez, Curtis Granderson, Adam Dunn and Danny Duffy
Here's my team right now:
C J Mauer 1B 1B A Dunn 2B M Young 1B/3B 3B P Sandoval 1B SS H Ramirez 3B OF M Kemp OF C Granderson OF E Bonifacio 3B/SS DH D Uggla 2B DH D Gordon SS
B N Swisher 1B/OF B B M Aviles 2B/3B/SS B M Morse 1B/OF DL C Young
SP J Cueto SP B Beachy RP J Johnson RP H Santiago P F Francisco P M Capps P H Street P C Sale
B J Peavy B D Duffy
I am really low on pitching, luckily the guys I have are pitching well, so I'm still in it for ERA and WHIP. But I think I need a big SP or two to help me get to my innings and keep my ratios low. Here's what my team will look like if I accept the trade:
C J Mauer 1B 1B M Cabrera 3B 2B M Young 1B/3B 3B P Sandoval 1B SS D Gordon OF J Upton OF G Stanton OF E Bonifacio 3B/SS DH D Uggla 2B DH N Swisher 1B/OF
B M Aviles 2B/3B/SS B M Morse 1B/OF DL C Young OF
SP S Strasburg SP C Hamels RP J Johnson RP H Santiago P F Francisco P M Capps P H Street P B Beachy
MAtt Kemp is amazing and it would be hard losing him but I don't think you miss too much in the hitter portion of the trade. MCab, Upton, Stanton vs Kemp, Grandy,HRam is kind of a wash to me. Stanton is starting slow but he will turn it around. Upton may hit the 15 day DL but shouldn't be out for more than that. Getting Hamels and Strasburg makes your pitching a TON better. Strasburg could win the Cy Young and Hamels is great also. A little patience would be needed with the hitters to get out of their slumps but I would do the deal for the major boost in pitching and minimal to no loss in hitting, except SB's but with Gordon and Bonifacio you should probably be tops in that category anyways.
In all honesty, I think you get the better players back overall, Hamels and Strasburg was 10x better than Dunn/Duffy but you couldn't ask for a much better top 3 in Kemp, Hanley, and Grandy right now and Stanton/Upton have nagging injuries that could hurt their production all year long. Could you trim this deal down at all just to upgrade your pitching? I think there needs to be an embargo on dealing Kemp away pretty much so I think I'd pass, especially since I'm worried about Upton/Stanton.
I think this is a good deal for you. I typically avoid these types of trades with multiple top-end talent, but this one works out quite nicely. You definitely need the boost in pitching and I don't think you're losing a lot offensively.
I think I do this trade if I am you. Even though you are losing arguably the best player in the game, the value that you are receiving is fantastic. You get Hamels and Strasburg, both of who are doing great so far, to help your pitching staff, and Upton+Stanton may be able to replace what you are losing from Kemp.
