choice between 3 trades

Postby crumf » Thu Mar 29, 2012 10:03 pm

10 team, head to head, 5x5, 4 keepers per year (may up it to 5 this year)

C Carlos Santana, Cle C, 1B
1B Mark Teixeira, NYY 1B
2B Howard Kendrick, LAA 2B, OF
3B Brett Lawrie, Tor 3B
SS Starlin Castro, ChC SS
2B/SS Ian Desmond, Wsh SS
1B/3B Miguel Cabrera, Det 1B
OF Jay Bruce, Cin OF
OF Shin-Soo Choo, Cle OF
OF Nick Markakis, Bal OF
OF Peter Bourjos, LAA OF
OF Lucas Duda, NYM 1B, OF
UTIL Ike Davis, NYM 1B

PITCHERS
P CC Sabathia, NYY SP
P Mat Latos, Cin SP
P Yu Darvish, Tex SP
P Brandon Beachy, Atl SP
P Gio Gonzalez, Wsh SP
P Cory Luebke, SD SP, RP
P Sergio Santos, Tor RP
P Drew Storen, Wsh RP
P Greg Holland, KC RP


Bench Shaun Marcum, Mil SP
Bench Francisco Liriano, Min SP
Bench Ted Lilly, LAD SP


So, I think I need to shore up my RUNS, SBs, and perhaps AVG. Weak positions are the 2b/ss (desmond) and the OF. I've talked to three owners and all seem open to the idea of trading.

Option 1. Owner has Desmond Jennings and Kipnis. Expressed interest in Choo and Gio Gonzalez.
Jennings replaces Choo, Kipnis replaces Desmond. Desmond to waiver wire for maybe Scott Baker, John Danks or some sleeper.

Option 2. Owner has Maybin. Expressed interest in pitching.
Maybin replaces Duda. Duda to bench, or waiver wire if someone good becomes available. Possible pitchers to give up: Marcum, Gonzalez.

Option 3. Owner has Victorino. Expressed interest in pitching. Suggested "mid-teir" pitching.
Victorino replaces Duda. Duda to bench. Perhaps Latos or maybe Beachy as trade subject.

Which would should I pursue? Or something else? Aybar?

Thanks

Or 1b- perhaps Gonzalez for Jennings straight up is another option. Duda to bench
