OK

He's playing games and changing up the deal on me. Wants Anibal Sanchez + __________ for his Santos and Farnsworth. I know Buerhle or Jackson would fit the bill. Is this deal one to abandon if it requires moving Anibal?

He wants Anibal Sanchez and Austin Jackson. I think I pass on that. Thoughts?

I would try and get Santos.

Should I shoot for a compromise and offer his Austin Jackson and Colby Lewis for Santos and Farnsworth?

by the way, he will only deal them as a package...

Definitely do not give up Sanchez.

Austin Jackson and either Buerhle or Lewis would be fine, but nothing more than that. If he doesn't want it, then it's not worth it. It's not like he's dealing someone like Rivera/Wilson/Papelbon here.

Santos is better then Wilson imo.
A very underrated closer with a nice K/9.

Yeah, but the perceived value of Santos is not as high as the perceived value as Wilson for most people. So, while Santos most likely could outperform Wilson (i agree), it's not anticipated by the average person. I'm assuming this guy is the average person.

This guy seems motivated ... he also has Votto, if I wanted to do a Votto for Prince exchange in the process. Any thoughts?

I prefer Votto.
Fielder splits suggest he might lose 5 hrs or so.

Since you guys are both here ... let me but my situation in greater context:

I have an owner willing to move Kennedy (whom I would like as a #3 behind Halladay and Hamels) and he would do it for Romero and Hunter. I would probly have to toss in something if we switched it to Jackson instead of Hunter.

I have another owner willing to move Santos and Farnsworth (as a package). He is interested in Lorenzo Cain and Anibal Sanchez, but I do myself no favors by dealing Anibal unless it is in a package to upgrade a tier in SP.

He has Desmond Jennings, whom I would love to acquire... but it would cost me Romero. so meh
