How did you decide on David Price? He's great, but he's also incredibly hot right now. If I were you I'd go find the team that's weakest at 1B/3B and see what kind of pitchers they have, Pablo might be a good piece to move. I'd sell Dunn but I don't know what kind of value you're getting. Dunn or Pablo with an Anibal should get you something near top tier I'd think.

This guys team is stacked on starting pitchers and he put him up on the trading block. He also has Cliff Lee and Brandon Beachy. Are Lee and Beachy better pitchers to target for the rest of the way?

A lot of other teams in my league are hard to trade with and barely trade so my best bet is to get someone from this team.

Beachy has been incredible, but he's probably overpriced and he's the riskiest of the three. Cliff Lee is probably the easiest to pry away right now, he's still winless, he's given up 3+ ER in four of his last five starts, while Price has given up three combined in his last four. If you're looking for a value I'd start there.

I would rank them

Lee, been unlucky so far, a 2.66 XFIP
Price is good, but been a bit lucky, 3.40 xFIP
Beachy K/9 is way down, and a .206 babip screams regression, a 4.14 xFIP

I would offer one of your 3B for Lee, then Price.
I wouldn't go more then Dunn for Beachy.

In a non-keeper, I'd definitely go after Lee there.

I know someone will freak out but i say get rid of konerko. I see some Dl time in his future. Bad knees go bad eventually. You will be getting great value for him and you just got panda back.

What does the guy need. We can come up with all sorts of scenarios on how to get one of those three SP but it isn't going to help unless we know what his needs are. I would assume the only reason he is willing to move one of these guys is to fill some holes in his hitting.

At this point I would shoot for the moon and get Price. I find it hard to believe that he isn't ranked #1 out of this group. Lee has a longer track record but Price has been on the verge of being a #1 SP for a while so it isn't really a surprise to see him being this good. Saying all that, I wouldn't over-pay to get Price either. So if you can get Lee or Beachy at a much cheaper price, then go that route but I would make him turn you down on Price first.
