These are hard to do because every league is different. What I can say, is take a look at your league and see who has a lot of depth at SP and then see if they could use an OF. If you see that then we might be able to help. What I find that usually works, is send the owner an email in regards to one or two of his players and see what he would want in return.

I doubt anyone trades power for steals before the season starts. Steals can be grabbed cheap this year. Maybe someone has great pitching and no speed in your league. That's you best chance. Or wait, as the season progresses someone with a big lead in HR may trade for some steals. Generally speaking I don't think I would have drafted Davis, Gardner and Ellsbury. 3 speed outfielders with no power seems like a bad idea.

I'm not so sure if I would trade them. In H2H, building around your strengths is the best path to a championship outside of a 2010 Troy Tulowitzki September. You want to be great in a few categories, not average in all of them. Go to a Roto league to build a balanced team.

You need a power bat, likely in the OF.
