Everyone has basically said what I'm thinking but I wanted to give my thoughts since you helped me out. Pujols and CC are great guys to get but you should try to blow smoke about Pujols best years being behind him and how CC is overweight and has pitched the most innings in the last few years. Maybe you get to give less or he gives up a little more.
I also think the first deal is ok since you have to get rid of these guys. But I hate the second deal. Looks like you would be giving up the two best players in the deal -- never a recipe for a successful trade. But good luck, looks like you have a tough but fun decision on your hands.
Latest development in one of the deals.... I just need to get Morneau out of there, and I think YoGa is very good pitcher perhaps some day great, but not there yet. If I can pull out Morneau and McCab. I could get somewhere. Thanks for all the input Cafe.
I GIVE: Cabrera , Braun, Danks and Lilly I GET: Morneau, Cargo, Yoga and Vmart
Without Miggy and Morneau, I am liking a lot more, but I suspect he will want to change some without McCab.

Essentially, it is to promote trading. Few real stars go back to draft. We do get 11 keepers. I do not have to trade them in one deal. I can break them up.
Thoughts here. I ALWAY GET OTHERS ON FLIP SIDE. Leave the link!!!
May be my most biggest target.... I hate giving up the two first rounders, but I am getting some value in these three. I GIVE: Braun, Mig Cabrera, Another Piece I GET: Fielder, Lincecum, Lee
I GIVE: Braun, Mig Cabrera, Danks, Another Player who is not a keeper for me I GET: Cargo, Morneau, VMart, Gallardo I don't care for this with Morneau. We are playing with ideas. I have Youkilis who can play first.... This needs work I think.
This one is taking work. I don't want a huge piece of his CC. But we'll see where it goes. I GIVE: Mig Cabrera, He is looking at other pieces, including Papelbon and two others. I GET: Pujols, CC
Thanks for your reply on mine. I'd say without knowing your entire roster that the first deal or the thrid deal look the best. Obviously if you can get Pujols then that's great. However I think the first deal you clearly win, depending on what that 3rd piece is. If it's going to take too much work to make the 3rd one work, I would take the 1st deal and feel pretty good about it.
The third option looks best if you can get Pujols. Just fyi, I have heard that Morneau is having SERIOUS issues. I'm talking not playing at all this year...or who knows if or when. So I'd axe that second deal involving him.
