A friend and I have reached an impasse. We've both been long-time lurkers of this forum and website and we've agreed to allow the fantasy baseball geniuses here come to a final conclusion on what is the most fair trade.

Now basically for my own team, I'm looking to reduce hitter Ks, increase SBs and lower my WHIP/ERA. For him, he wants more a big jump in his hitter numbers R/HR/RBI and a little AVG if possible., he's not too worried about pitching.
The trade offer is deadlocked, mostly on my part, because I've offered Rickie Weeks, Jayson Werth, Chad Billingsley and Madison Bumgarner FOR Ian Kinsler, Alex Rios, Josh Johnson and Jhoulys Chacin.
We're stuck and it's probably because of Kinsler and I see his point. So how do we fix this, what can we do to help each other out? I think swapping Kinsler for Figgins satisfies things for the most part but it also swings the trade too far in his favor, or am I wrong? What's fair for a 4v4 or 5v5 blockbuster trade?
