League info: 14-team, H2H, 5x5, non-keeper, 25-man roster with 3 bench spots.
I'm in first place and will almost assuredly make the playoffs. Team with Crawford is in 11th and won't let go of Crawford that easily. My intentions are to trade a few good but not great players for one very good player - Carl Crawford.
My first thought for a trade is:
plus two scrubs I'd drop
First, what are your thoughts on that trade? Am I lowballing him or is it a fair offer? Second, can you think of any other trade offer given our rosters?

I feel I can safely trade away one of my closers because both Brad Lidge and Jonathan Broxton are free agents so I can just get one or both of those if/when they are healthy and closing again.
So I want to offer a trade that he will be compelled to accept that favors me due to Crawford's potential but without losing any big time player.
