I can get Carlos Santana on the eve of his debut in my 12-team near dynasty (keep up to 10 prospects and also 22 MLB players):
The deal is my:
Derek Norris, Grant Green, and 4 (!) prospect picks
Carlos Santana, Stephen Drew, Martin Perez, and Casey Crosby
It's essentially upgrading my bench from Aramis/Fowler to these guys (with Aramis on the DL, I have room for Drew, and when it's time to call up Santana, I could drop Fowler).
And it's admitting that I was probably wrong on Green b4 his value drops. The C and SS sides look like clear winners, and I'm ok with turning 2 picks into those risky but talent pitchers.
However, I paid Jeter, Chris Perez, Rasmus, Porcello, and Tim Beckham for Hanley alone last year at this time. I can't help but feel that I could offer 3-4 prospect picks (we each get 3 but I've traded to have 6 total now) for a bigger star than Santana.
What do you think of this one? Full team here:
BN: Rajai, Beckham, Fowler
SP: Roy, CC, Johan, Wainwright, Ubaldo, Gallardo, Oswalt
RP (holds in): Mo, K-Rod, Neftali, Qualls, Braddock, Contreras
DL: Madson, Jordan Zimmermann
Prospects: Hak-Ju Lee, Shelby Miller, Grant Green, Derek Norris, Eric Young, Jr., Junichi Tazawa, Jared Mitchell, Miguel Sano
