Was sent a message by an owner interested in Kinsler. He said he has a 12th round pick, a couple 13s and Craig Kimbrel, Gerrit Cole and Christian Yelich available and wondered if there was a combo that we could work out a deal with.

I'm thinking Kimbrel and a 12 would be a pretty nice return for Kinsler. I like Cole a lot too but already have 2 top-flight SPs. Thoughts on what (if anything) I should ask for?

***Note: Keepers take up the first 4-8 rounds of the draft. So a 12th round pick is an actual 12th round value, not as if we declare keepers and then have to draft an additional 12 rounds before this pick. In essence it's approximately a 4th round pick after keepers are declared. Just in case anyone was confused.***

Thanks in advance.

Depends on a few things...

1- Do you think there will be a decent replacement available in the draft for kinsler?

2- Same kind of question, what's the gap between kimbrel and what will be available in the draft?

I'm leaning towards keeping kinsler, but I can understand why kimbrel is an option.

Please help

Also think I might be able to get Chris Davis for Felix. If I could do that and get some Cole/pick combo or even Cole/Kimbrel my keepers could be:

C- (Brian McCann)
1B- Chris Davis
2B-
3B- Miguel Cabrera
SS- Troy Tulowitzki
OF- Andrew McCutchen
OF-
OF-
Utl- (Billy Butler)
Utl-

SP- Yu Darvish
SP- Gerrit Cole
RP- Craig Kimbrel

And have to choose between McCann and Butler. :-?

Don't trade Felix for Davis.
I would take Kimbrel over Kinsler. Getting a pick, makes it a lock.
Kinsler is overrated. Has been declining a bit, and has terrible splits out of Texas.
