12 team, H2H, 5X5, non-keeper

I need better SP. What can I realistically ask for?

An owner offered Greinke for Prince, which I rejected. I have a surplus of OFs. I would rather deal from that.

1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Ian Kinsler
3B - Miguel Cabrera
SS - Asdrubal Cabrera
OF - Josh Hamilton
OF - Jay Bruce
OF - Carlos Beltran
DH - Justin Morneau
BN - A Rod
BN - Mike Aviles
BN - Austin Jackson
BN - Nolan Reimold
BN - Bryce Harper
BN - Mike Trout

SP - Stephen Strasburg
SP - Anibal Sanchez
SP - Vance Worley
SP - Johan Santana
SP - Lance Lynn
SP - Matt Harrison
SP - Ross Detwiler

I don't think you will get much for either of them, especially for a position in need. Unless you find someone who has totally bought into the Harper hype for *this* year, you're looking at #4/5 type starters or someone like Jonathan Niese. I would try sending an email to every manager asking if they are willing to give up a pitcher for Harper. Take the best offer you get.

In a keeper league, however, everything changes. Too bad you're not in a keeper league on this one. :)

Not much,, u will likely end up dropping one or Both. Within 2 weeks. Best way to get some trade value is if they start out hot. Then trade high.

If you find an owner bullish on Harper or Trout, you might be able to get something in the Vance Worley/Lance Lynn range, but I personally wouldn't bite. I doubt either outfielder will help as much as even a Gavin Floyd this season.
