"I tend to agree, though in this league Stanton wouldn't actually get you Teheran or Moore, believe it or not."

this is an odd statement, some explanation of why a highly sought after, 3rd year getting better all the time, power hitting top 50 player; wouldn't get you a minor leaguer... would be helpful. If you want the best help, the more understanding of your league set-up the better. You are playing for the future, a 30 homerun hitting stud for the next decade isn't something you build with?

Just to add, pitching prospects usually take longer to mature once they hit the big leagues. If you go with pitching prospects, your 1-2 year rebuild plan could turn into more like 3-4.

This league tends to skew scoring in the favor of pitching. It's a points based league, here's an example of how much pitching tends to dominate the scoring. The top bat scored 700pts and that was Albert the next closest was Mark Teix at 593.

Take into consider pitching, Halladay scored 762, Sabathia 732, Lince at 711, and 6 others over 600 points.

Knowing that, how about this offer.

Matt Moore, Chris Young for Mike Stanton and Tyrell Jenkins.

Odd league settings there...

I honestly don't know what I would do here. Can you get someone similar to Moore but with a good/decent hitter included? If not, I would consider that deal but would probably try to arrange a deal with many minor league picks involved. Good luck!
