Thanks in advance for feedback
Scenario- I commish a 12 team mixed keeper league with 6 keepers/yr of a 11 hitter 9 pitcher 5 bench roster setup with a 1b/2b/3b/ss/lf/cf/rf/iF/OF and UTIL slot and 3 SP 3 RP and 3 UP pitching setup.

Team A Sends Cano and Hanrahan to Team B for Uggla and Shields.
Team A has Kinsler Ortiz C Santana Napoli as hitting core and Kershaw and Cain, where Kinsler Ortiz Cano Kershaw Cain are no brainer keeps. his rationale is he wants a 6th keeper so wants to get Uggla and Shields to round out keepers. He is in 6th in the league, 25 points out of 1st at 129 pts.
Team B is in 3rd at 139, 15 points back overall and needs saves to move 4-5 points in that category alone. Team B has a core of Teixera Trout Ellsbury CC Price as 5 no brainer keeps. Team B has a history of lopsided deals going back, oh 35 years. Team A and Team B are old buddies, both have won titles in last 3 years though Team A is a relative newbie of 5 years to fantasy ball.
League bitched and moaned over Team B rationale, though he did send out 4-5 offers including Cano, just not to anyone that is savvy, except his buddy.
I don't get the keeper rationale on Uggla or Shields. He already has Kershaw and Cain, and Shields is a league average pitcher career with one peak year that offset a couple real bad ones. He's 32. Uggla is 32 and hitting .230 for the last 1.5 yrs. League is offering guys like Shields ( Lester, Romero, Kennedy) on open market already....
Thoughts on trade/situation?
