I like the Sandoval, Storen, and Rosario side of the deal.

Sandoval is still pretty young and has a high ceiling IMO. Adding OPS into the mix helps his value a bit too, as he posted .900+ last year. Storen is a solid closer. Rosario probably won't have an impact in 2012, but he has some long term upside.

Lawrie is nice and all, but I think there is a bit too much hype surrounding him this year. He has a lot of talent but I think too many are prematurely dubbing him a sure thing. He has a higher ceiling than Pablo, but I don't think it is enough to justify the losses of Storen and Rosario. Martin is a borderline starting catcher (at best) in a 12 team league.

More value in side A. Urban does a good job of articulating why.

I would take Lawrie over Sandoval, but adding Storen to the mix makes option A an easy pick.

I like both sides of the trade though I would probably lean towards A because it is safer and has more quality players. Side B could easily end up being the best though. Lawrie has the talent to be a top 15 player and if he gets there, then side B is pretty easily the winner.

I think a lot depends on your team in this kind of deal. If you are already stacked and trying to get Lawrie by dealing some of your depth, then I don't have a problem with it. Or if you are needing more depth and you are dealing Lawrie to fill your roster out, then good trade as well. If you don't have much depth and you are dealing what little depth you do have in the hopes that Lawrie turns into a stud, I would shy away from that. In this scenario, you are giving up too much.

This.

Without knowing your needs, the only blind trade one can really evaluate would be a "this 1B for that 1B" kind of deal where team depth and strengths aren't relevant. Blindly, I'd go with A for the reasons already listed but a case could be made for both.
