any other thoughts on this?

Isn't it better to have 3 top offensive keepers vs. 2 offensive keepers plus a SP? I think in a non-keeper league, the trade of Longo for Baumgartner and Cain is a no-brainer, but in a keeper league, I think it could leave me at a bit of a disadvantage next season since Longoria is my most notable trading asset for a star hitter (like a Matt Kemp or Ryan Braun, etc.).

Do this now.

Longoria has proven that he cannot stay healthy for a full season, yet continues to be ranked as a top tier player at his position. Definitely trade him for Cain and Bumgarner, they both have top 10 pitcher potential if they aren't there already.

It doesn't matter. You are getting fantastic value for Longoria. You can use your surplus pitching and combine it with a hitter to get an elite hitter in a future trade.

Agreed...I think Longo for ONE of them is fair. If you can both, do it now.
thanks.
