If you believe that Kemp can hold up for the rest of the year, then go for it. He won't out-power Dunn but his average and speed should help you (if it does in your points league). However, I would try and get a lighter arm back with Kemp since you're taking on more risk here. Wouldn't hurt to try the play the 'two times on the DL' angle to the other guy.

Thanks for helping with mine. I would do the first trade he offered. Kemp hit a homer since his return, I would take the chance he'll hold up. What do you have to lose? Shields who hasn't been good this year and has a record of having bad years and Dunn who hits homers but does nothing else? Take Kemp, if he gets hurt you can always find an aoki type of player on the waiver. I would probably take the second trade too, just don't know which lewis and rodriguez you're talking about. But if it's Colby Lewis he's good but might be hurt. if it's alex rod, i would want to keep in, should have something left. but definetely the first one. i'd rather have colby lewis than adam dunn.
