Tough call. I think I would stay with Utley and J. Montero. I think Santana is better than Montero is 2012, but I think they are even in 2013 and Montero has more long-term upside after that. I don't think Utley returns to his full glory days, but I think he is being undervalued for 2012. I don't think it's a matter of skill, just a matter of health. If he plays 150+ games, he could easily put up .280/90/20/90/15 or better. That's a lot of production from the 2B spot. That would be hard to replace. I think the drop off at 2B for you would be MORE than the gain you would get at C from Montero to Santana. Plus, your SP's are looking ok, so I don't think targeting SP in the 11th round is worth the trade.

Nevermind...I see you already answered mine. Thanks for the input.
ps - I don't like those options at 2B. I think that is why the other manager has been so aggressive trying to target Utley. He is trying to pick him up when his value is low and trying to avoid the other 2B options you listed.
Love Donnie Baseball. Favorite player of all-time.
