What's Joey Bats's trade value in my dynasty league?

In my 14-team dynasty league, I want to head into the auction next year with ~$90 to spend on the remaining 9 spots (we can keep 19 major leaguers and 4 minor leaguers). I'm considering making serious offers for Bautista, who's $2. I asked his owner what he'd want for ol' Joey Bats, and he responded: one of either Votto ($34) or Stanton ($10), one of either Avila ($3) or Santana ($14), and David Price ($12); he'd throw in someone like Bumgarner ($11).

That's just too much to yield, IMO, even despite Bautista's amazing contract. Still, it was less outrageous than I expected, and I'm thinking of countering with Youkilis ($23), Chris Young ($4), and Hanson ($30) for Bats and Strasburg ($11), and would even consider including Avila b/c I'm deep at C with Travis D'Arnaud and Ryan Lavarnway waiting in the wings, in addition to Santana. I also have Nelson Cruz ($20) that might be worked in there somehow.

Would I still be giving up too much? Or am I crazy to dream on this at all? Or somewhere in between?
