I am in a 5x5 keep 6 with no cost that uses OBP/SLG and QS+CG rather than ba, hr, and wins. I have the second pick this year. Trout is a keeper but according to the BM output Kershaw (1.89 z) is the best pick after Cabrera, an evaluation I definitely agree with, though it doesn't jibe all that well with the typical draft advice to avoid pitchers in the first round. Here is my question. I have been offered a trade of the third pick in the fourth round to move up from the seventh pick to the second in the first round. Should I do it? Specifically, what is the right way to think about this trade? I figure I will get a player with a Z score in our format around 1.20 with the seventh pick. Int he fourth round I should get someone around a Z-score of .2, although a guy like Uehara or Holland could easily fall. Obviously, 1.89 is more than 1.4. But I don't think I can assume a zero as my replacement level on the Kershaw side of the equation. Should I be looking down to guys i think will be waiver wire fodder and see how they rate to calculate an appropriate replacement level for the Kershaw half of this transaction? Or should I just plug a zero in? Thanks for your thoughts in advance....

Is this a 2-for-1? Does he get a last-round pick in exchange for giving you two picks?

Already drafted and I took Kershaw. I could have taken Choo at 7 or Felix or Cliff. The top of the fourth round looks like Medlen, Minor or Zimmerman or maybe Marte/Beltran

I should have done it I think, Didn't expect that much talent to be there. In love with Kershaw though.....

Could be wrong, but if kershaw is in the same stratosphere as last couple years, you should be very happy.  I would go kershaw over Hernandez and medlen in a heartbeat
