You will have a better chance of making a good trade if you look at the other teams to see who needs a 1B/3B, then see what they have that you like. Does that team have a surplus of OF??? Feel free to post the options you identify, and I'll give you my thoughts.
I would look for an OF before RP if I were you. RP often emerge from the free agent pool so no big need to trade for one at this point.
