Keeper League Trade(s)

Keeper league - keep 15 MLB players. This is the 8th year of this league (6th for me in it) and I have built this team from a last place team to a potentially strong one for many years to come through trades, draft, minor league roster, etc.

Two trades that are being discussed. Below is my current MLB roster:

Jay Bruce

Ryan Doumit

Adrian Gonzalez

Jason Heyward

Eric Hosmer

Ian Kinsler

Buster Posey

Jose Reyes

Giancarlo Stanton

Drew Stubbs

Ryan Zimmerman

John Axford

Marco Estrada

Yovani Gallardo

Joel Hanrahan

Tommy Hanson

Felix Hernandez

Sean Marshall

Mike Minor

Bud Norris

James Shields

Rafael Soriano

Huston Street

Tom Wilhelmsen

Possible TRADE 1: I give Felix Hernandez and Ian Kinsler in exchange for Justin Upton and a draft pick

Possible TRADE 2: I give Eric Hosmer, Yovanni Gallardo, and draft pick or top minor leaguer for Albert Pujols

These are from two different owners so I could pick up both Upton and Pujols which I think would be significant for my offense this year (and for several years to come). We play head to head and score 12 categories (7 offensive and 5 pitching) so the batters are more valued overall in the league. 3OF spots with 2 Utility spots.

Any thoughts? My only concern is that giving my two best pitchers would hamper my ability to compete in all categories, but to counter that thought is that I can always find enough pitching but elite hitters, not so much. I think I know what I would/should do with these trades but wanted the community feedback.
