I know I need piching and outfield. A guy wants a 3b. I as thinking of offering him Longoria and Ian kennedy for Trumbo and Scherzer. I am gonna drop Kubel and pick up Brandon belt to replace longoria. Is this a good deal to offer Thanks for any help. Im a noob so any advice is appreciated.

Also I was offeres Weaver and Morrow for Jose Reyes and Matt moore. I turned him down cuz I dont like weaver and I didnt know how I would replace reyes. Good call?

I would not do this deal. In general, it's usually best to get the best hitter (Longoria). You would need a better starter then Scherzer in return and probably a lower quality arm than Kennedy.

Something more balanced, just throwing names out there: Longoria/Kennedy for Trumbo/Felix Hernandez.

Ok well I wont get Yu Darvish his #1 Scherzer is his #3. His #2 is Yovani Gollardo from the Brewers

So Should I offer Longoria/Kennedy for Gollardo/Trumbo or Gollardo/cespedes or should I scrap this deal all together. Like I said Im a noob. Should I look at someone else to trade with in the league?

Longoria/Kennedy for Gallardo/Trumbo is a bad trade for you IMO. Longoria/Kennedy for Gallardo/Cespedes is closer to fair but you are still losing value there. I personally think Longoria/Kennedy for Darvish/Cespedes is the fairest deal, so I would counter with that if you are looking to make a trade. Some would prob still argue that is a bad deal for you though since you are losing the best player in the deal.

OK thanks. Ill look around for a different deal. He said he was looking for a 3b so I was thinking I could make a move to upgrade since I have miggy and longoria.

Everyone agrees I need pitching and of help right?

Yeah I would say pitching more so then OF. You don't have to trade Miggy and Longo, since you can play one of them in the 1b/3b/DH spot. If I was you I would look to trade Daniel Murphy or Howie Kendrick for a quality middle-tier SP. You dont want to ever play them in the UTIL spot and you already have your 2B and 2B/SS spots lined up with Neil Walker and whichever of the two you don't trade. Then drop Marco Scutaro for the best available SP on the FA/WW.

Out of those options I would prob take a chance on Lohse.

Also the guys in my league are being tight. No trades yet. Should I drop Daniel Murphy or scutaro to pick up brandon belt or brandon moss?
