McCutchen is more valuable than Zimmerman alone, plus you are getting Ubaldo. And since you have both Lawrie and Wright at 3B, losing Zimmerman is no big deal.
Once you have McCutchen, your definite keepers are-
1) David Wright
2) Andrew McCutchen
3) Brett Lawrie
4) Eric Hosmer
5) Rickey Romero (Needed for the 4/2 hitter vs. pitcher split)
6) SP (If needed for the 4/2 hitter vs. pitcher split, if you can keep 4/1, then I go with the guys listed and take the pick)
For the last keeper spot, Santana or Marcum would be my choice over Walden. Generally, it isn't a good idea to keep closers as the position is volatile and you can usually redraft them later than other players. Ubaldo might make a good 2nd pitcher keeper choice- his skills were roughly intact from 2010 (he was unlucky in Cleveland) and should bounce back some. Problem is that you may be able to acquire him in the draft later than normal.
It would be nice if you could get a SP upgrade too, but that would be greedy and maybe make the other manager retract his offer. As of now, take McCutchen for Zimmerman and be happy
You also need to keep Eric Hosmer over Hunter Pence, especially if acquiring another OF in McCutchen. Hosmer has too much potential to not keep, even for Pence.
