this is a points only league where pitchers have big returns.
This guy wants a trade... and he's a huge reds fan and is talking about votto. I'm okay with that, but in trading votto i need to get a good return. He's really my only option at first base for regular production. i have deep selection off of the ww for 1b so here's what i'm thinking..
votto for tulo/santana
votto for lester/santana
either way.. drop martin/jeter (maybe morse?) and pickup trumbo or freeman
WW offers the following 1B - dunn, pena, freeman, smoak, trumbo, kotchman, hosmer, wallace, loney, kennedy
Any better deals you would make or think that would benefit myself more in the long run? I think asking for konerko/tulo is too much for one player.. plus i really want to upgrade my catcher situation. he says he likes mccann which makes me think he could be deal breaker if i try snag him. and santana is a definite upgrade over martin.
Currently i'm in first, but i spend most of the time in second and sneak into first every few weeks.

How about votto/espinosa/jeter for beltre/tulo/santana
Nah, the first trade you posted is the best one. Votto for Tulo/Santana I'd definitely do if I were the side getting Tulo/Santana. You get a definite upgrade at C and one of, if not THE best, SS's in the game. As far as for who to pick up, go with Freeman. If that guy were any hotter right now he'd be Hansel from Zoolander.
Definitely wouldnt take the second trade, but I would take the first deal since you have a lot of good options on the WW. I would rank the WW's in this order: 1. Freeman 2. Trumbo ( trumbo and freeman are very close imo ) 3. Pena 4. Adam Dunn

Freeman is hot now, but I think you would miss Votto. I don't know if the upgrades are worth the possible big downgrade at 1B. Can you trade a 2B for pitching instead since that is your team's strength?

Grab Freeman or Pena, probably in that order.
