I would pass and use stop gap options at 3B until Aramis heats up. He is better in the second half usually.

I'd pass. If a guy like Rolen is available, you're better off picking him up and keeping Arencibia and Lucroy.

I would do this. Lucroy looks good right now, but I don't think he'll be noticeably more valuable than Arencibia in the long run.

3B is a shallow position and Aramis could be having a down year. Roberts is hot and can help you in all 5 categories - he could be last year's Martin Prado with a SB threat.

I like the deal. Roberts could end up helping your team a ton, whereas the difference between JP and Lucroy won't be that great, and JP can easily outperform Lucroy. You risk very little for what good be a nice reward. I see no reason not to take the deal.

I would take the deal. Roberts offers more flexibility, and having LP makes this an easy decision. I like JP better than Lucroy.
