Re: Trade Verlander for ... which hitter(s)?

The clear-cut top hitters next year are going to be Pujols, Braun, Miggy, Kemp, and Bautista. I think you have to consider all those guys out of Verlander's league. Probably Tulo as well.

Beyond that, in the nebulous 5-15 range, is where I'd be looking. Some guys that stand out to me there:
JUpton- undeniable talent, though in a deep keeper league his owner will probably not want to move him
Ellsbury- depends on whether you and/or his owner believe he can repeat
Adrian Gonzalez- seems to be falling off people's radars because his power fell off a cliff at the end of the season, but he's still an elite option
CarGo- would probably be the easiest to get, since his counting numbers were down this year; people forget how much time he missed and how productive he was when healthy
