What does your roster look like? Sounds like a no-brainer to me, but I have no idea who is on your team...

I would say so! Your pitching rotation while there are no BIG name studs is full of alot of promising pitchers, and I feel you could easily trade a couple of them and be fine, Kemp while hes started off slow with only 1 hr will once he gets back into the swing of things will be smashing it!

I don't know. I'm a little concerned about Kemp. Ever since he came back from his injury last year he's, well, played like he's still bothered by it. Mind you, I'm only looking at his stats and not how he's carrying himself, swinging the bat, etc. I think he's a good buy low candidate, though he'll still cost you. Perhaps you should start off by offering Haren + Hellickson and negotiate from there.

Mind you, I'm a huge Shields fan. I don't know why he doesn't get more credit as a top line starter given his steady K/9, etc. I think you've got the pitching depth to make this trade, and if Kemp starts performing a bit better you'll do just fine. It's not a no brainer or without risk, but I think you can do it. It will probably be less painful than just cutting Hellickson anyways!

I like the Haren/Hellickson idea. Shields is great. Consistent production from an inconsistent position.

Kemp looks like crap, but you can always store him on your bench until he starts tearing it up again (he will).

Also, I'm sorry about your 1B position. It must be really... trying, to say the least.

Best of luck!

It's a great problem to have. I have so many great players I can't play them all. Only problem is nobody wants to trade with me because I'm already running away with the league.

Good luck with the Haren/Hellickson offer. The Kemp owner might be happy to swap headaches.
