I'm in rebuilding mode after finishing 18th overall out of 20 teams last year. I felt I did a respectable job of stockpiling raw talent with upside, but at some point, I need to look to package quantity for quality in my opinion.

A manager approached me about dealing Rizzo or Singleton for his Leonys Martin. I told him I wasn't interested and inquired about Will Myers.

Given my current depth at 1B (LaPorta, B Allen, Rizzo, Singleton), would you consider moving one of the prospects for a corner OF when my ML OF is my most reliable position with Holliday, Choo and Victorino? Also acquired Snider as a buy low option.

Guy also has Strasburg, Harper and Kemp, but the three would cost considerably more obviously.

Either Rizzo or Singleton I wouldn't think twice about swapping for Myers. He's a much better prospect, and in a huge league like this, if you can get more talent out of a trade, you do it and worry about OF position later.

Which would you offer first? Rizzo?

Would you consider offering Cahill, Rizzo and McGowan for Bryce and W Myers?

I would do it for either, but would offer Rizzo first I guess.

In my opinion if that guy would accept that trade then I'd do it but honestly if he did he doesn't need to manage a fantasy team cause you would be coming way out on top of that deal.

Yeah, if this is a serious league, Rizzo or Singleton isn't getting it done. You have a bunch of prospects with great tools/scouting reports that haven't lived up to them (Sale, Hicks, Britton, Mitchell). Most managers in dynasties love to chase potential. I'd offer Rizzo and one of those 4 for Myers. You'd still come out on top, and the other guys gets to dream on Jared Mitchell for a couple years before he fizzles out in AAA.
