Very close for me, without seeing the rest of your keepers and league specifics I'd probably opt for Machado.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

I'd rather have Machado over Strasburg, all things being equal.

I would rather have Machado. You already have a great starting pitcher to keep in Wainwright. No need to trade for another one if you have to lose Machado.

Maybe I'm minority but I think I'd prefer Desmond to Peds (I'd prefer a 20/20 SS proven over an aging and slightly overrated 2b). I see no point in dealing one of the best young 3b in the game for a good pitcher but that you don't really need.
