I would totally do the trade. You have 2B already clogged up, so go for it.

I would drop Coby and Shields for Drabek, Wood, McCarthy and Baker (pick which 2 would fit your needs best). I own Drabek and Wood (both drafted by me), so I have lived with their ups and downs. McCarthy will benefit from having Bailey back as a closer and Baker is #2-3 in the Twins pitching lineup.

Do it. In such a shallow league, I'm sure you can replace Roberts with something pretty solid from the wire if need be. De La would add a nice pitcher to your staff, and you have 2B filled anyway.

Yea, this is a major go for me. If he was your primary second basemen then the answer would be no. But in a utility spot? You can probably find someone better than him in a shallow league to be honest.
