Should I go the route Element suggested:
Is that more realistic?
I like what he suggested. I do think the first deal is a lot to give up but I can also see why you would want to do it. I know it is early to already be throwing in the towel for 2012 and looking towards 2013 but sometime you have to do this kind of deal to get your team turned around quickly. The other option is to not do this trade and then draft whatever comes your way and hope you get some young players that you can keep.
Personally, I have been in this kind of league and had to work trades that weren't fair at the time but made my team better for the future.
I wouldn't take his first offer. I am not sure how you guys are doing this deal but if you can do it through email where you can actually write what you are thinking about the trade, it might help to get something done. I have found that I am can usually get a deal done through email more often then just sending trade offers back and forth.
