    • I'd do a straight 1x1 using either Harvey. Sabathia or Stras.
      I don't believe Harvey will hold up, I thinkg CC will get better and Stras im not too crazy for with his DL potential.

      I think you could get McCutch, Bautista, Encarnacion, maybe Stanton, on 1x1.
      Probably not CarGo, Tulo, Cano, Trout, Harper or Cabrera. maybe Chris Davis.

    • Harvey is a guy who can probably get you anyone you want by himself, but it its my team hes untouchable. Hes my foundation for next years team. If i'm moving anyone, its gotta be Johnson for sure (hes to unreliable) and Cain (if his team had offense its a different story). To be honest, Johnson will be tough to deal I think due to everyone knowing about his troubles/struggles this year. You need to target a guy who you can buy low with HUGGEEEEEE potential such as Stanton or maybe Kemp coming off the DL ( probably get him real cheap). Stanton is attractive becuase chances are hes getting traded to a contender so he will score plenty of runs, while still getting his HR and RBI. Possibly a guy like Marte is someone you could use. Scores runs, hits homers and steals bases. But again, do what you like. Its your team and your decision.

    • heres whole team if helps
