I’m thinking of trying to get Cabrera, Kemp & Price. Would an Offer of Berkman, Crawford and A Miller be reasonable or is it not enough?
I would be able to Promote Price from the Minor League, and Keep him next year without using a Keeper slot on him, that is the main incentive for doing this deal.
Here is my team any one that is Bolded I’m thinking of keeping. Thanks in advance
I'm in a 10 team, 5x5 roto league, where we get to keep 12 players and we have a Minor league team that you don’t have to protect until they reach 30 games for a hitter or 30 innings played for a Pitcher. We Also get to Keep the Minor Leaguers that are added for one year without using a Keeper slot on them, I used the YK to show the players that I get to keep that way.

I'd much rather have the MCab side. Andrew Miller carries no weight in the proposal and Berkman is a few years beyond 30. Cabrera is a young stud and Price looks like gold and the upgrade of Crawford over Kemp may not even be that substantial.
Six player deals are very hard to do. Even more so when you are talking about high upside/stud type players. I doubt this will make that trade happen. Your best bet is to start some talks with the other team and see what he thinks. Or I would try and do two different trades rather than one. Do a deal for Cabrera and another one for Kemp/Price. More likely to get something done that way.

So I've decide not to let this go, I'm thinking I sould add a SP that I'm not planning on keeping to the package What about Berkman, Crawford, one of Shields or Lackey and Miller, for Cabrera, Kemp and Price ?
here is his roster.
Russell Martin Jason Giambi Kelly Johnson Miguel Cabrera Jose Reyes Stephen Drew Ty Wigginton Carlos Beltran Matt Kemp Hunter Pence Elijah Dukes Hideki Matsui Casey Blake Mariano Rivera Dan Haren Rich Harden Daisuke Matsuzaka Kerry Wood Adam Wainwright Matt Capps George Sherrill Joel Hanrahan Roy Halladay Ian Kinsler Chipper Jones David Price(Minors) Elvis Andrus (Minors)
You have 6 first round players and 10 from the top 2. You must have been getting away with this kind of deal for years. I'd say give it a go and see if it works again.
If not try adding Becket or Kazmir instead of Miller, who is worthless in this deal. Probably still not enough but might be getting closer.
Hamilton, Kazmir, Crawford for MCab, Kemp, Price is getting close.
Even still I think you end up with better immediate value, better upside, and more youth. Cant think of why he would accept. And the above iteration is a significant step up from your original proposal.
