Wow. Those stats are impressive... I ended up countering as you suggested, but recieved a better (though bigger) offer from another leaguemate. I'm not sure how I managed this -- my only explanation is that the guy is a huge nats fan and is in last place in the league -- but I was offered McCutchen/Weaver for Zimmerman/Kennedy/Veras/Aoki. I'm fond of Zim and Aoki, but I figured the offer was too good to pass up.
No one involved really has much value beyond this year, at least for me. Veras was a last rounder so he could conceivably be a cheap source of saves next year and Aoki was a middle of the draft guy, but neither factored into my six keepers as I saw it. I would have loved to have gone one-for-one with McCutchen and Zimmerman, but really didn't want to have the deal fall apart in negotiations. Of course, feel free to point out anything I might have overlooked in this deal (there is always the chance it will be vetoed).
