1B Adrian Gonzalez
SS Brad Miller

I'm currently 1st in my division by 13.5 games and 1st overall in the league. I'm leading the league in every offensive category but I'm 10th in pitching. I can't keep 6 hitters (Miggy, Pedroia, CarGo, Davis, Myers, Encarnacion), so I'm willing to deal one to upgrade the staff.
GIVE: Adrian, Myers, Kuroda, Turner
GET: Shelby Miller, Fowler, Wade Miley, Betancourt
GIVE: Adrian, CarGo, Kuroda, Turner
GET: Shelby Miller, Fowler, Wade Miley, Betancourt, Carlos Santana
The obvious difference is Myers vs. CarGo. I do at least like getting Santana back in the second deal, as I could plug him right in at 1B. I'm a little hung up on giving 2 SP for 2 SP, as pitching is what I've set out to gain in the first place. However, the thought of Miller for the next 10 years is nice.
There are a few other options from other owners....
GIVE: Myers, Gee
GET: Corbin, Almonte
GIVE: CarGo, Gee
GET: Corbin, Ogando, Almonte
GET: My choice of 2 of Anibal Sanchez, Cole Hamels, Hudson, Hellickson, Gibson PLUS Holland
GET: Bumgarner AND choice of Ryu, Fernandez, or Minor
Do any of these appeal as is? Anything I could modify? Or would you ride it out as is since I'm in 1st and try to trade an extra piece in the offseason? I admit that I can't help thinking long term and not having much after Verlander and Kershaw in 2014 isn't great. Be happy to clarify anything, and as always WHIR.
