I don't really like any of them.
I think Kemp out produces Hanley, and Dunn is going to bash once it warms up.
I would do it if you replace Kemp with Crawford.
If i had to choose, take 3, since you keep Kemp and get Cahill.

Hey Kirch
If your going to go for these option, the most attractive is option 2.
I also have Alexi in my league, and he has been up and down throughout the season. Dunn is a someone you can easily dispose considering you have Pujols. IMO there is alot of buzz is about how bad Hanley is playing right now, so this is the time to buy if you can. Dunn is going to get you HR's but you have that already locked (Pujols, Upton, Kemp).

Option 3 is also attractive, but after looking at your team you would be giving up Scherzer for Cahill. If you did that then you will have 3 A's pitchers on your team. Being from the bay area I like that A's, but I wouldn't want to have 3 of their pitchers on my team. So on that note I say option 2! I like Anderson way over Gio, and if Mccarthy is on the waiver wire, pick him up. Hope this helped.

If you got time, Let me know what you think about my situation: viewtopic.php?t=430387

I wouldn't give up Kemp for almost anybody this year. He's back on track and I think the sky's the limit. I agree with the person who said if anything, choose option 3.

Yeah, option 2 or 3 for me. Wouldn't give up much more though. Alexei and Hanley may end up pretty close in numbers outside of sb, and you are strong in that cat. But if you can get him for either of those I'd do it, but I agree I'll take kemp over Hanley all year

I wouldn't advocate making any of those deals--certainly not anything with Kemp--but if you have your heart set on it, I'd go for #2. I just think Gio is going to be volatile all year with all the walks he issues.
