Certainly dont deal Longo unless you get more. I dont think I would even do Youk in that deal, try to get more, even if you have to give up another player along with youk on your end.

I like your offensive depth, and this type of deal (locking up another big arm) best suits your strengths and needs. Since that's the case, I would definitely give Youk/CL/low-end SP a shot -- or at least consider it in the context of your current situation. Marcum would be a definite boon to your pitching staff, and you have plenty of depth from which to produce a proper UTIL replacement.

I would try something like, Young and Perez for Marcum and Prado. I think it's fair both, plus marcum will help you more than Perez.

This would be a great deal for you, however I'm not sure it would be accepted. I would be hesitant to give up Youkilis especially in a OBP league. He also has the benefit of dual eligiblity. Marcum would be a nice addition to your staff but not sure why you would want Prado? He wouldn't start over anyone on your current roster. At util, I would much rather Youk.

Since you only get to keep Hamilton or Hanley this year, I would be looking to move them.

I agree that once Hamilton returns it would be a good idea to move him. He is guaranteed to return 100%. In other words he may have lingering effects for the seasons remainder.

In regards to Hanley, I can only assume that you wish to win this year so I would only trade Hanley if you could get a top SS back in return.
