I'm in a 16-team, 40-man roster dynasty league. We can keep all players permanently with no drawbacks. I went into the season thinking my team was in really solid shape: My infield was ridiculous with Pujols, Weeks, Tulo at SS, hanley at MI, Longoria at 3rd. My OF wasn't quite as stacked, but I thought it was solid enough with Carlos Gonzalez, Chris Young, Delmon Young, Nick Markakis, Seth Smith, and Grady Sizemore ready to come in and help
It hasn't worked out the way I wanted, between Delmon being hurt (and bad), Snider being sent to AAA, Markakis playing like he should be there, and Gonzalez being the worst out of all of 'em.
I'm fortunate that I have Wil Myers and Jesus Montero in my minors (the only top-notch prospects with any trade value on my team. Carlos Perez, Jason Adam, Peter Tago, Nick Weglarz all could be contributors eventually, but none have much in the way of trade value at the moment)
So I have a lot of interest in Myers and Montero. I two owners engaging me in trade talks at the moment: One offer is Myers, a 1st round pick and a 3rd round pick for either Matt Holliday or Colby Rasmus. I made the offer and he's tentatively accepted (Holliday was 3rd among OF in points in our format last year)
The other offer is essentially Montero and a first rounder or Travis Snider for Choo. He wants to give me Berkman as well, but if I trade for Holliday, I won't need Berkman.
So those are my options. Trading for Choo and Holliday, to me, transforms my outfield from a liability to a huge strength, but I also love Myers and Montero. I was hoping to integrate them into my lineup, but the early performance of my team just didn't facilitate that :(
