I'm in a 16-team dynasty league where you keep all your players year to year, it's H2H 6x6 categories (standard 5x5 plus OBP and holds), we start 2 1B and 2 3B. you get a 5 man milb roster.
i give: braun and pineda i get: kershaw, josh johnson, carl crawford, huston street, oswaldo arcia and kaleb cowart
That's obviously a huge haul, but I'd also have to drop a lot of guys which is one of the reasons im questionable. The guys I'd probably drop: bailey, bell, wallace, and clayton blackburn. I think Wallace and Bell have decent upside this year. (ill take suggestions if you think there are other guys i should drop instead, besides matusz,who im sure would be a popular choice, im gonna give him one more chance.)
My team is: C-Wieters 1B-Allen Craig 1b-Chris Davis 2b-Ackley 3b-hanley 3b-wright ss-alcides lf-braun cf-mccutchen rf-harper of-stanton util-neil walker bench-gordon beckham, ichiro, profar, brett wallace, gary sanchez, josh bell, buxton
pitchers- Bauer, harvey, Pineda, B. Anderson, Felix, Darvish, Arroyo, Neftali, Matusz, Pomeranz, Rafael Soriano, Cishek, Andrew Bailey, bundy, clayton blackburn, buehrle, mike fiers, ryan vogelsong
So do I pull the trigger? Does whether or not I get cowart change the answer?

My first thought was do the deal. the more I look at it, I say pass and improve 2B as well. Kershaw is going to be a top ACE for some years to come but Braun is a top of all players for 5 more years. SP's tend to pop up every now and again, replacing a Braun sometimes never happens. Just look at who you have now, Darvish, out of no where is a MLB layer. Yes he started out slow but he could be a top 10 SP for the next 5 years with any luck.
