None of the three are a great fit. If I had to choose from one of the three though, it would be Betts because at least he fills your 2B need. There is a good chance he is not a long term solution for you at 2B though as he could lose 2B eligibility after this year given he is currently slotted in to play in the OF for the Red Sox. Of course, there is always the chance that Pedroia gets hurt and Betts fills in there, but I wouldn't be relying on that happening. Anyways, I would likely look at another option, but out of those three - Betts.
It depends on what side you are to know which one is better. However, I assume you are the one receiving the goalie. If so, I would rather do the Bishop deal. You would not be giving up much at all. If you are giving the goalie, I wouldn't do either, but the Rask deal is a better deal for you.
Any thoughts on Gomez for Kershaw? The Kershaw owner has the strongest starting pitchers of any team and the weakest OF. I have an abundance of keeper caliber OF, and I know he is willing to trade Kershaw. He does over value him, so I would probably have to sweeten the deal with one of the players who would be a clear non keeper for me, but a keeper for him. I am just not sure if I should do it. I have no idea who my 8 keepers will be, but know for sure at this point I would only be keeping Sale for pitchers with the current roster.
I don't think Gomez will turn out first round value, but it seems most people view him as a first round type player, so am thinking this might be a good opportunity to capitalize on that. However, my main concern is the loss of steals. Last year I was 1st or 2nd in all offensive categories except only middle of the pack in steals. I am concerned I would not be competitive in steals if I make this deal. I know I could possibly address this in the draft, but I usually don't like to take pure steals guys as most hurt in both average and OPS. Is it worth losing the competitiveness in steals to make the deal?
8 keepers - 12 team H2H - R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP
My own judgment. However, I give some consideration to Yahoo's ranks when making trades since I know the other person is probably placing a high degree of reliance on them.

It is standard 9 categories. However, I am blowing him out in 6 categories already. 3 are still close. They are rebounds, steals and TOs. Who would you start of those 4 guys?
I agree - more info needed. However, without that info, I would say I would rather have Giordano than Sedin and Lucic. It really does depend though.
In a money league (or really any league, but especially a money league), I don't like the idea of vetoing any trade that is not obvious collusion - and this does not appear to be collusion to me. While it does indeed appear lopsided, with the uncertainty around Carmelo, this trade could easily be a win for either team. People should be allowed to run their own team how they want without the intervention of competitors in my opinion.
12 team H2H, standard 9 categories, currently 3rd place
Have made about 4 trades over the past week or so, and am just looking to see if there is one area where I am especially weak in moreso than others. The team stats to date are not all that relevant considering all the new players I have. Before the trades was quite weak in points and FG%. Any thoughts on areas to improve? Also, do I have too many PGs? I am a bit uncertain on optimal roster composition as far as positions go.
