You could perhaps offer Spivey, Padilla (or a different sp) and Julio? Even if it's not accepted, you might be close to a deal here, for instance by upgrading Padilla. Might be worth a shot...

Both Dye and Jones, who I was never sold on, are awfully cold now. Especially since you'd also have to drop two players, I'd decline this offer. I'm not principally against trading quality for quantity, given the right situation, but with your team, you'd most likely lose this deal.

I'd concur. Quality for quantity is usually not a great approach in anything but the deepest leagues. Always need to consider the next best option out there and the incremental benefit is often smaller than you think. In fantasy as in reality, the team that wins the trade is usually the one that gets the best player.
