8 team H2H 5x5 pretty shallow league for hitters, 2nd place, in the 2-4 range for about every category if it were roto.
FA available: Hosmer, Austin Jackson, Craig, Lind, Rizzo, Kelly Johnson, Michael Young, Moustakas, Middlebrooks, Rollins, Rios, Ichiro, Kubel, Pagan, Beckett, Bucholz, Ubaldo, Hughes
#1 Granderson and Teixeira for Miguel Cabrera, this has been offered to me and I don't think he will budge for less.
#2 Teixeira and ___ for Kershaw (or straight for Cliff Lee, likes the upgrade at 1st)
#3 Granderson and ___ for Bautista (he uses him in the OF, but he's worth more to me at 3rd, will not accept Tex)
The first option has been offered to me, but I think I may be able to get a better deal out of trading the two separately in hypothetical but plausible deals to different owners that I list as #2 and #3, especially because I think I need a pitcher. I traded B-Phillips for Longoria the day before he had his setback and have been riding hot hands at 2nd and 3rd, which I don't mind because of the great options on waivers. This makes me really want to deal Tex, because one of Hosmer, Lind, Rizzo, or Howard will certainly match him ROS.
What would you offer owners #2 and #3? Would you pull the trigger on trade #1? Who would you add from waivers? Thanks!
