Braun for Trumbo, Weaver, & Sale

Hey All

I am in a head-to-head Points (weekly) keeper league.With the keeper league I get 2 guaranteed keepers. Everyone else is only "kept" if someone (or myself) drafts any of my team's 2012 players, I select a player from my 2012 team to be kept for my 2013 team. In this league, SP generally are the top scorers and will average the most points per week/scoring period.

My 2 keepers from 2011-2012 were Ryan Braun and Miguel Cabrera. My best players in the 2012 season that will be eligible to be kept for the 2013 season are Ryan Braun, Miguel Cabrera, Felix Hernandez, Matt Cain, and Jacoby Ellsbury. At the moment I would keep Ryan Braun and Miguel Cabrera again, but would debate over Cain, Felix, or Jacoby (depending on his post-injured season). I also have players like Jay Bruce, Matt Wieters, Jake Peavy, and C.J. Wilson.

Currently I am in 2nd place and have already beaten the 1st place team when I faced them. I am playing for the win this season.

I was offered:

Mark Trumbo 1B,3B,LF,RF LAA - 191 points

Jered Weaver SP LAA - 250.5 points

Chris Sale SP CHW - 245

I would be giving up:

Ryan Braun LF MIL - 243 points

Ryan Dempster SP CHC -178 points

Felipe Paulino SP KC - 107 points

In addition I have 2 minor league bench spots on the team which any player can occupy (active or minor leaguer). Currently I have Harper and Ryan Howard and I will activate Howard next year and will have an empty minor league bench spot. I could put Sale or Trumbo in that spot to ensure holding onto them for a couple of years until they develop into a potential superstar.

If you need any more details about my team or the league or the deal, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you in advance for your advice and help.
