The first one's pretty good, the second one I wouldn't take. Problem is: does that make DeRosa your new 3B? Cause that's a huge downgrade. I know they moved the fences in at Citi Field, so it's not unrealistic (if he's healthy) for Wright to hit upwards of 30 HR's this season. Cliff Lee's great, but personally I think I keep Wright here, if only because you don't have much going on after him at 3B. Lee would instantly be your best, but you need someone in that 3B slot.

Also, do you think offering CarGo for Stanton and Carlos Lee is asking for too much or a good idea?
I actually like your status quo with Wright at 3B. However if you can swing a deal for another 3B then I do see the value in this trade.
Some may think I'm crazy but I personally like the CarGo side of this deal. Stanton has a knee issue bothering him that he has to play through and he is now in the toughest hitters park in baseball oppose to the easiest. That is the difference maker for me in this deal.
Yeah, Stanton's knee issues make me nervous. I'd rather have the CarGo side in the second deal. Again, try and line up a trade or decent WW pickup for 3B before you pull the trigger on the Wright deal. Despite the pinkie issues, he's been on fire this season, and is one of the premier 3B when he's playing. That's a huge loss if you don't have someone to fill in.
Ok so I have decided to not do the WRight deal and keep CarGo but the other guy who wants to trade me Votto for Wright and Holliday says to counter. If I got Drew Stubbs or Chris Young back with Bixler and Votto for Holliday and Wright would that be worth it?
