    Creative Trade Offer Need Help

    am willing to trade, Grenke, Zito, Kelly Johnson , Jose Lopez or Quentin. will do any combination in a 2 for 1 trade. I would like an elite hitter or pitcher. Any ideas on who to go after. The alternative is I dump Quentin or lopez and find someone who is hot right now on the waiver wire.
    I am in an 11 team league.with each team having 26 roster spots. Free Agents are thin but I am sure I can find a band aid for now. Thanks

    • Trading Greinke and Zito for a hitter should allow you to get almost any elite player in the league. That's a lot of trade value, unless that team already has good pitchers.

      I also own Greinke, and if I was going to trade him I'd expect a player like a Vernon Wells, Jason Bay or Ichiro. A good but not elite player. Greinke is 0-4, but look at his ERA and WHIP. He will get his going forward.

      If you trade BOTH pitchers, I wouldn't settle for anything less than your choice of player, barring somebody like Pujols or Cabrera, etc. But you should be able to get an A-Rod, Braun, H Ramirez, or anyone you like. Quentin is so inconsistent right now you won't get much for him. I dropped him last week.

      You might try Kelly Johnson and Greinke or Zito for Cano, Pedroia or Utley. That way they get a good 2B in return and you get an elite one. Utley would be my choice of the 3, although I'd rather give up Zito/Johnson than Greinke/Johnson.

      It all depends on your league and how willing the managers are to deal and trade
