In my 20 team h2h dynasty league, I was offered Jose Bautista and max scherzer for my Lincecum escobar and rasmus. Is that too much to give or is that a solid return for me? Team is below.

I am not the first, and I most certainly will not be the last to ask this...but what to do with Adam Dunn? I'm getting to the point where it's difficult for me to not just cut bait and get whatever I can get for him that can be useful the rest of the way, rather than have a black hole wherever I put him. Here's my team, 14 teams, H2H, keeper (3 sports with 15 keepers across the 3, I'll end up keeping either 6 or 7 for baseball), 6x6 w/ BB and HLDs as the added stats. I'm sitting just 5 games out of first despite some bad luck to start, just as a reference.

C Jonathan Lucroy
1B Adam Dunn
2B Robinson Cano
3B Aramis Ramirez
SS Starlin Castro
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Jacoby Ellsbury
OF Hunter Pence
UTIL Nick Swisher
UTIL Erick Aybar
BN Freddie Freeman
BN Geovany Soto DL
DL Angel Pagan
DL Ryan Zimmerman

SP Cole Hamels
SP Matt Cain
RP Joel Hanrahan
RP Matt Capps
P Jordan Walden
P Mark Melancon
P Sean Marshall
P Joe Nathan
BN Mat Latos
BN Gio Gonzalez
BN Matt Garza DL (more good news today...)

I was planning on keeping Dunn in my future plans, but the prolonged slump has prompted me to consider dealing him for a 1B who can be serviceable the rest of the way (maybe Gaby Sanchez), and a decent UTIL bat to cover me until Soto and Pagan are activated to clear up my bench (Logan Morrison may be too high, and would drop Lucroy and Aybar). Then choosing my keepers from a pool of Cano, Zimm, Castro, Cutch, Ellsy, Pence, Hamels, Cain.

So what do I do? Hang onto Dunn and keep hoping, and keep him in my future plans? OR cut bait and try to get a couple complimentary players who can fortify the core above instead of having several black holes in my roster (ideally trading Dunn and Swisher to a Yankee fan for those pieces )?

Help me out please!!!

Ditto. I picked up Hosmer and might even consider starting Martinez at 1B and my backup C Suzuki at C. Dunn sucks. Sit him against LHP, matchup against RHP. I think he's still not 100% - don't cut him lose but trade him if you can get return.

I replied to your Cargo/Gallardo for Lincecum/Rasmus.
What happened to that deal?
That was a better offer.
