I can see the logic, but I still think you'll be on the weaker end of this deal for another year or two minimum -- so it only really balances out if the extent to which it helps you based on your keeper settings runs that deep.

This is where I really think that people overvalue youth in a keeper. What's the age difference here?? 4-5 years?? If Pujols was at the end, I could see considering this but, under the circumstances, you gave up the #1 player in the game for someone that isn't even close, IMHO. I like Kemp but he isn't Pujols. The only way that I see this deal helping you is if your league will be around in 8-10 years and no one has a crystal ball. I have seen many people panic into youth movements only to see their leagues fold up before they could ever reap the benefits. Since you only keep 5-6 players, I would be focusing on the better players rather than the younger players. For your sake, I really hope that Hosmer hits the ground running.
