SP- Stephen Strasburg, Cliff Lee, Zack Greinke, Tim Lincecum, Jake Peavy, Kyle Lohse, Alexi Ogando, Cory Luebke,
RP- JJ Putz, Rafael Betancourt, Jose Valverde,
Prospects: Delino Deshields (hopefully my eventual answer to 2B woes), Mike Montgomery
Obviously second base is my biggest need.
I am being asked about Luebke, but would like some input on who to ask for.
C- Matt Wieters, Derek Norris 1B- Brandon Belt, Ike Davis 2B- Robinson Cano 3B- Pablo Sandoval SS- Asdrubal Cabrera, Ian Desmond LF- Coco Crisp CF- Jacoby Ellsbury, Leonys Martin RF- Jason Heyward, Michael Morse
SP- Verlander, Dickey, Bumgarner, Sale, Kennedy, Furbush, Aceves RP- Pestano, Romo, Rodriguez, Morales, Strop, Boggs, Frieri, Addison Reed, Tim Collins, Louis Coleman

I know I can't land Cano, so looking for prospects maybe? Rosario could be a second base backup for the future, am I asking for too little? Too much? Just right? I suck at prospects and not sure if trading Luebke for relievers is a good idea.
I like Luebke alot, but I don't see anyway you are going to do well trading him right now, coming off that type of injury.
However, pitching is your strength, and If you believe in Luebke coming back strong, I would attempt to trade one of your other stud arms like Greinke, who you could trade at full value and will bring you back a nice haul.
In a 16 team league your pitching is incredibly strong, especially for a h2h league. I would definitely try to do something.
Luebke's trade value right now is pretty low. No point on selling low with him. I did like the suggestion of trading Greinke. He really didn't look great when he came over to the AL. You might be able to get good value for him right now.

Make him offer you something. He is wanting him so see where he values Luebke. If you offer him up, you might be selling him low to a guy that values him more than you think he does.
Personally I would think about doing it for Wieters or Morse. Or I figure out a package to get Cano (not likely) or Bumgarner or Heyward. While those might be reaching for the stars, you would be improving your team and the worst he could do is say no.
I like Luebke but more for next year then this year. It seems to take most guys a full year before they get back to what they were doing. So trading him should be about what you are trying to do. Win now? Then trade him for something above. Rebuilding? Wait it out as his value should only get better.
