#3 and 4 i would def. not do. #1 is close but i would stay put with the consitent Lee. Crawford you have to worry about his hamstring holding up and if he cant run, he aint worth anything. And harden you have to worry about everything haha.
#2 i do like. Gallardo is good, but i think Slowey and Votto would more than make up for the loss of gallardo, then you could get the horrendous rickie weeks outta your INF spot for Votto
I think your Of has enough talent that Milledge or Jones wouldnt make as much of an impact as Votto could.
I actually don't mind #1 - but it's definitely not for a risk-averse individual. Plus, it is tough to let Lee go. #2 is a possibility - it's really just an issue of if you need to spread talent between positions or if you're better off with someone solid for one particular role (you mentioned getting Votto - that would really sweeten any deal). Number 3 is something I probably wouldn't do. Number 4 doesn't make sense - already have A-rod/Gordon and wouldn't want to lose a SP. Just my thoughts - good luck with whatever you decide!
You should be all over #2 with Votto & Slowey. (Even if it's only Votto, it makes sense for you to do #1 & #2.)
Deal #1 becomes even more appealing to me with you taking on Votto from Deal #2. You wouldn't be losing much from Carlos Lee to Votto and would be picking up 40+ SB from Crawford in the process and an ace-when healthy in Harden.
I would do both #1 & #2.
Essentially you trade Gallardo & Carlos Lee for Votto, Crawford, Harden, (& Slowey too?). I'm doing that in a heartbeat.
