first round after how many are kept? Obv makes a huge difference in your leagues setup and rules.If theres good pickings in the first round I'm probably not going to like this very much. Also if you get 3 players and lose 2 who gets dropped from your roster?Can you keep players forever?How many?
You and your leaguemates might know excatly what your league requires, but we don't and we need to know these things to give decent advice

Yeah, we need to know the caliber of player you can get with your 1st round pick. Name 3 or 4 options you think are a reasonable guess as to who'd be available there.

Yep, need more info. How many keepers and who you think you could get with that pick. At first glance I like the deal. You are getting the best player and I would take Pineda. I am not a huge fan of Latos going to the Reds, that ballpark worries me and I still have some questions about his health.

It is going to completely depend on the quality of the available player with your 1st round pick. I do like the pitchers coming to you, and I don't think giving up Ethier is anything damaging.

I'd do the deal get Latos, Alvarez, and Bard (go with a good young arm with a good shot at closing or at least being a starter for a good team.) Vogelsong was a flash in the pan and even if he somehow dulpicates this season pitchers like him are a dime a dozen.
