I get:
Prince Fielder (1b, DH)
Carlos Guillen (1b, SS, 3B, DH)
Roy Halladay (SP)

I give up:
A-Rod (3B, DH)
Todd Jones (RP)
Rafeal Furcal (SS, DH)

This is my team now:

B. Molina C
J. Loney 1B
C. Figgins 2B
A. Rodriguez 3B
J. Peralta SS
L. Berkman OF
C. Lee OF
I. Suzuki OF
B. Upton OF
N. Swisher DH
J. Thome DH
M. Cain SP
R. Harden SP
D. Lowe SP
M. Pelfrey SP
Z. Greinke RP
M. Rivera RP

Bench:

R. Furcal SS
C. Patterson OF
C. Young DH
S. Baker SP
B. Bannister SP
T. Jones RP

Now this is a 5 man keeper league. This past season I kept: Berkman, Lee, Ichiro, A-Rod and Upton. Obviously I would keep Fielder if I took the trade and possibly keep Halladay as well. I obviously have no use for Jones at this point and probably Furcal either.

This definately helps me this year but is it worth giving up A-Rod for basically ever?

I'd say take the deal. Halladay has more value than Jones, same as Guillen and Furcal. The A-Rod part might hurt you, but u get a somewhat capable replacement with Fielder.

Do it, your offense is fine, your pitching... not so much. Halladay is arguably the best pitcher in baseball. Fielder doesnt suck either.

Yes. Furcal is out, and Jones isnt even the closer anymore. Do IT!!!!

IT's Fielder, Halladay, and Gulillen for Arod!!!

Did anyone even realize this is a keeper league?

I realize its 3 for 1 this year. If this wasnt a keeper league its a no brainer.
