I have no problem with the trade on its' face, but who do you play at C everyday...maybe I am missing a rookie with C eligibility though?

As for stats: Butler>Napoli and I think Kennedy>Hanson but once again, who's your everyday catcher? Nevermind, saw Perez has C eligibility... so do the deal.

Help me in return? viewtopic.php?t=450948

I would be ok with the deal. My biggest question though is what to do with Butler. Not sure he really gets into your util spot. Kennedy is a nice slight upgrade over Hanson IMO and I like Perez. Maybe you need to pull of another deal probably a 2-1 upgrade if you can.

Would it make more sense to ask him for Alex Gordon instead of Butler? Butler has better numbers though...

My usual utility once Papi returns will be a.gon, Beltre, Papi. So I'd have to fit butler in there somehow which could be tough.
