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

The # 3 deal would make the most sense for you.

If you could deal Santana + one of your lower tier pitchers like Hughes, Friers, Bailey or Minor for CJ Wilson, that'd be huge.

I'd consider # 2 and 5, a straight up deal. For those, I'd target Latos or Burnett. Either of those pitchers would be a nice grab for Santana.

As for # 5, Personally I'd deal Santana and Cespedes for Beltran, but many would say that's a risky move. Though, Cespedes is just as, if not more injury prone than Beltran.

I wouldn't even consider the other trades.

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.

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?

Or should I move on to Team 2?
