Fantasy Advice Needed - Part 2 of 2

Hey Everybody.  I'm looking for a little advice on 2 topics, which I'll break up into a Part 1 and Part 2.  I have what I believe is a pretty good team (though I'm currently in 11th place out of 12) this year, but we're using a format that we've never used before (Head-to-Head) so I'm still figuring things out.  For some background: We've been in a dynasty league for 8 years, but this year we blew up our teams and started from scratch, switching to a H2H format.  I haven't been told if it's going to be a dynasty or keeper or year-to-year league, which made it really hard to draft and is making it even harder to save roster spots for minor leaguers.  It is a 12-team H2H mixed league where almost every stat counts, as follows:

Batting: R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, AVG, OBP, SLG

Pitching:  W, L, CG, SHO, SV, HR, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, BSV

Here is my current team:

C Kurt Suzuki (Oak - C)
1B Miguel Cabrera(Det - 1B)
2B Chone Figgins(Sea - 2B,3B)
3B Alex Rodriguez(NYY - 3B)
SS Stephen Drew(Ari - SS)
CI Justin Morneau(Min - 1B)
MI Jed Lowrie(Bos - 2B,SS)
LF Brett Gardner(NYY - LF,CF)
CF Alex Rios(CWS - CF)
RF Jose Bautista(Tor - 3B,RF)
OF Adam Jones(Bal - CF)
Util Cameron Maybin(SD - CF)
Util Grady Sizemore(Cle - CF)
BN Eric Young(Col - 2B,LF)
BN Mike Trout(LAA - CF)
BN Eric Hosmer(KC - 1B)
DL Chase Utley(Phi - 2B)
DL Corey Hart(Mil - RF)

SP Josh Johnson(Fla - SP)
SP John Danks(CWS - SP)
SP Carl Pavano(Min - SP)
SP Carlos Zambrano(ChC - SP,RP)
SP Aaron Crow(KC - SP,RP)
RP Chris Perez(Cle - RP)
RP Bobby Jenks(Bos - RP)
RP Matt Thornton(CWS - RP)
P Jake McGee(TB - RP)
P Kerry Wood(ChC - RP)
BN Ervin Santana(LAA - SP)
BN Matt Harrison(Tex - SP,RP)
BN Bud Norris(Hou - SP)
BN Tim Collins(KC - RP)
DL Adam Wainwright(StL - SP)
DL Stephen Strasburg(Was - SP)


Anyway, I've been offered the following trade:
I give up:  Josh Johnson (my one great SP not on the DL)
I get:  Rickie Weeks, Desmond Jennings, Chris Sale

I am not going to accept the trade as-is (mostly because I like to get the best player involved in any trade, and I really don't like giving up the best player AND having to drop 2 others).  The person who made the offer also has the following players, who I would be interested in: Miguel Montero, HanRam (I won't be able to get him), Mike Stanton, Colby Rasmus, Lincecum (unlikely), Kershaw (unlikely)

I'm not sure what counter-offer to make, or if I should just say "no" and move on.  My SP isn't all that great (it's pretty bad) and JJ is really a game-changer.  I doubt if I'd be able to swap JJ out with any of my other SPs.

So, please let me know what you think of my team and also what you would do with this offer in my situation.  Thanks a lot everybody!
