It was suggested to me on here that I try dealing Carlos Santana since I already have Buster Posey. As far as I can tell, there are only two teams in my league that he would be an upgrade at C for. Here are the players of interest on those two teams:
Team 1: Matt Latos, Hiroki Kuroda, Tyler Clippard, Wade Miley, Adam Jones, CJ Wilson Team 2: Justin Upton, Jon Lester, Carlos Beltran, Drew Storen, AJ Burnett, Felix Hernandez, Prince Fielder
The difficulty with Team 2 is that I traded Lester to that team for Nelson Cruz, so it'll be tough to trade Cruz back to them.
The trouble with Team 1 is the guy is notoriously a pain in the a** in trades, and only takes it if it appears to be a landslide for him. What's the most realistic trade here?
1. Santana + OF to Team 1 for Adam Jones 2. Santana straight up to Team 1 for Latos, Kuroda, or Miley 3. Santana + SP to Team 1 for CJ Wilson 4. Santana + OF to Team 2 for Upton or Beltran 5. Santana straight up to Team 2 for Lester, Burnett, or Storen 6. Santana + Zimmerman to Team 2 for Felix 7. Santana + Teixeira to Team 2 for Prince

Redraft league right? Best deals for you I think would be #3 and #1, although they are both the least likely to get accepted. Your weakness seems to be pitching, so Santana straight up for Burnett would be great too. I also like straight up for Latos, Kuroda, or Storen (lester has been a disaster stay away) I also think #6 would significantly upgrade your team. You would move King Feliz and Rutledge into your starting lineup and trade away Zimmerman and Santana from your bench. Help me: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=451502
So I tried Santana and Hughes for CJ Wilson, which (unsurprisingly) got rejected. Should I see if the guy with Team 1 will take a straight up swap of Carlos Santana for Latos? Or try and package Cespedes and Santana for Jones?
