Who should I target in a trade? I really like Castro and Tulo at SS and could go after them.
You're overreaching. I can't see anyone trading away Miguel Cabrera, one of the best 2 or 3 players in baseball, and Haren, one of the most reliable SP out there, for Hanley and his .219 AVG and an injured Longoria.
And there is a pretty big difference between Castro and Tulo, but I would not give you Hanley for Castro, and I wouldn't trade Tulo for Hanley.
I'm holding on to him. I am still confident that he is going to come around soon.
I think you are undervaluing Cabrera and Tulo. Both guys were considered top 5 player last year and I doubt their owners are ready to sell low on them. Castro could be had but I would rather have Hanley than Castro.

I was just offered Tulo for Hanley and Longo. This is tempting, but I feel that since this is a keeper I may be selling short. Longo is a solid keeper at 3rd and Hanley, though under preforming, is not slouch himself. Hanley will prob lose SS elig. next year though.
Do I counter or just except?
He has Kemp, Kendrick, Freese, Ellsbury, VIctorino, Hamel, Darish, Lester
12 team, h2h, 3 man keeper
We start all 9 positions plus one util. We have to pitch 39 innings per week
First of all, your user name is awesome. I hope that is a reference to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure because I have not thought about that movie in 15 years! Now to your question, if I were you I would not do that last trade you mentioned, (Tulo for Hanley and Longoria). I think you would be giving up too much. I have HanRam on my team as well and I think he will have a good year this year and put up good numbers. That being said, I agree with the last guy that I would wait a bit for him to go on a tear (he appears that he is getting hot again) and then maximize his value. I think you need pitching, but I doubt he would be willing to trade Hamels but I would make a run for Darvish and especially Lester. You may be able to buy low on Lester right now and maybe package him in a deal if this guy really wants HanRam and Longoria. Hope this helps.
