I'm looking for advice on a multi-team deal I'm trying to put together. I'm in a 12-team 5x5 keeper league, and am currently sitting in first place. I think if I can shore up my pitching and get a little more speed I'll be very tough to beat this season.
I'm looking to move my C. Santana (14th round keeper), Domonic Brown (would be a 16th round keeper) and Jason Hammel (innings eater, but nothing special) to acquire Austin Jackson (who'd beautifully shore up my OF) and Matt Cain (who I think is a great buy-low candidate). If I can pull it off, is that a good trade for me? What's the consensus on Cain?
I was trying to work out a trade for Latos + Bourn (for similar players), but that owner hasn't been responsive. I could try again, offering something like Encarnacion for Latos, but I'm not confident that owner is paying enough attention to make a deal happen. If he were, I'd then be looking to move Dom. Brown + Hammel for an OF with more speed, if possible (any ideas?). Or am I better off targeting Cain + Jackson?
C-Santana, Rosario (we only start 1, hence I can move Santana)
SS-Segura (my new man crush)
Bench-Eaton (DL), Puig, Al. Castellanos
SP-Strasberg, Scherzer, Garcia, Hammel, Minor, Teheran, J. Fernandez
RP-Perkins, Wilhelmsen, Henderson, Robertson, Storen, Tazawa
