12 team H2H Dynasty League. 23 man MLB Roster and 13 man Minor League Roster. There are no contracts or salaries. The players you have are the players you keep.
Here is my dilemma. I am going into the year without a 3B (Figgins lost his eligibility) and need to pickup or trade for a 3B. Currently the best available FA's are Rolen, Encarnacion and Glass Chipper. I have started some early discussions with Youk and McGahee being the targets. I am also looking at Beltre and P. Alvarez. I believe McGahee would the easiest to acquire however I believe I could obtain Youk as well but for a much bigger price tag. Here are the deals I would be proposing.
1. I give Coughlin and Abreu or Furcal and Abreu and I get McGahee
2. I give Cargo and Dominic Brown and I get Youk and Jason Heyward.
3. I give Dominic Brown and I get Pedro Alvarez. (Dont think this gets the job done, but its a starting point)
The same team who has Alvarez has Beltre but do not have a clue on how he values him.
Additionally I am stocked in the Minors with plenty of additional trade bait. Chris Carter, Desmond Jennings, Jesus Montero, Brandon Belt, Brett Lawrie, Miguel Sano, Aroldis Chapman, Jake McGee, John Lamb.
I am definitely going to start with trade option 1, but would appreciate some consenting opinions.
