Thanks for the help.

I would go after Ellsbury first. He'll help you the most this season and probably just as much as Kemp (especially if he doesn't stay healthy) the next 2 years. Kemp would be my second choice and Pedroia third. Ryan Braun would be good for the future but he's not going to help you this season.

I think I like them in this order- Braun, Kemp (but risky because of health), Ellsbury. But I also would thrown Machado in there. He should only get better.

I would try to include Pedroia as one of your keepers. 2B is a pretty thin.

I would for sure take the Ellsbury trade or the Braun (if the owner is willing).

I agree with this advice and I would go with the healthier offer. That being said, Kemp is the higher risk, higher reward.

Thanks for your advice!

Get Kemp if you are looking for next year.
Get Ellsbury if you are playing for this year.

Honestly, all PEDs aside, Braun is your best target for next year. Although he is out this year, and assuming he plays next year at the level he has for the last several years, he is the second best fantasy player behind only Miggy.

Thanks for helping me out.

It sounds like you have a pretty slim chance of both gaining/losing ground for this year, so I think I would look to the future and try for Braun. He has the most value for future years in my eyes, and Kemp's recent injuries scare me.

Just to clarify, Ellsbury/Corbin is not an option as different owners own them. It's likely either Kemp/Corbin or Ellsbury alone or Braun alone.
