Trading away Josh Hamilton?

I drafted him round 10, I can keep him at that round for 2009. The rest of my outfield consists of Holliday (round 3 KEEPER), Pence (round 4), Rios (round 10, acquired in a trade 2 weeks ago), Johnny Damon (round 19), and Carlos Quentin (cannot be kept due to our league rule of if a player wasn't drafted in the 2008 draft, he cannot be kept for 2009, he goes back into the draft for 2009).

The scenario is, I'm in 1st place. The only category I suck in is stolen bases. I'm ranked 8th out of 10 with only 51 stolen bases. I'm within 15-25 of moving up 3 to 4 spots. An owner has approached me about trading me his BJ Upton (round 14) for Hamilton straight up. Would you do this deal?

Yeah, I was figuring the same thing.

A follow-up, a guy has also proposed to me his Matt Kemp for my Alex Rios. Stand pat or go through with it?

In keeper leagues, it's always best to win this year, otherwise, what's the point? As long as you have the offense to sustain a Hamilton loss, you're golden with the B.J. deal.

Yeah, I think I would go with BJ...hes stealing a lot more bases although the home run pop has come down a bit.
