Re: Trade advice needed for my Keeper league.
Cameron is a definite upgrade over Kendall. Mike is hitting his stride right now and can be a very complete player when he's on a hot streak. Kendall is basically worthless at this point in his career. Good move there.
I'm ambivalent about the Arroyo-for-Looper move. Looper has never really impressed me much, and Arroyo has (plus he plays for the Reds). I still have confidence that Bronson will be able to put up solid stats by the end of the year, barring injury of course. If this is just a question of who is going to ride your bench, I probably would have kept Arroyo. Then again, Looper plays for a team that (should be) much better than the Reds, so he probably has more potential for wins. Not a bad move to be sure, but I don't see it making a great difference in your fortunes.
The Carpenter move, BTW, is a great one. You've got two aces (Oswalt and Harang) already, and a third one will probably really help your team dominate. Freel is useful as a speed/position flexibility option, but he's injured and totally replaceable. Good job.
