Well before you trade anyone....get rid of nathan and kuroda (yes his last start was great, but outside of tanaka I would not want to own any pinstripe pitcher) . And you left out Miller on that list.....
Zobrist for Adams and maybe Kuroda (because of his last start) You get what you want, you lose one 1B (you have 4) and you dump a SP who is hurting your team.
I don't know why you think you need ANOTHER 1B. You have a couple vets with Morneau and Ortiz, and you just grabbed Hosmer. I'd focus on upgrading your SS and 3B, then a mid tier SP and RP.

Must say....you have some really dumb opponents. The first trade is ridiculous in your favour. Nicely done.
Now as for your team, your OF, UTL and RP are your weakest points. Your last three RPs are killing you right now. Rios and Blackmon have been great, but the drop off after that is huge. Seager has been a big disappointment so far and I don't trust the health of just about every Yankee field player.
I might try and sell high on Blackmon and Cueto and see what waiver pickups you can find that will replace some of your worst performing players.
Hope that helps.
(ps: if you could have a look at my post "pick three", it would be great)

I would love to see what deals you pulled off to end up with Goldschmidt, Miggy, Cano and Hanley (4 sure fire 1st round picks).
I'm not calling you out as a liar, but to be honest, those would have had to have been some amazing deals in your favour to end up with those 4 in your lineup.

depends on the needs. both craig and bailey are not performing well. Abreu is demolishing the ball and andrew is putting up solid numbers playing for a bottom feeder Padres team. Personally I'd take b, only because i think cashner won't keep it up and i don't think craig will repeat last years numbers.

I'd scrap the Closer hunt. Try and land some set up guys with low ERA/WHIP who can give you 1k/ip. That way, you may tank SV's but you could get some solid stats for ERA and WHIP.
Outside of that, you are really waiting for carp, miggy, holliday to really heat up. And a couple SPs to produce a bit better (lookin at cain and tillman there)
It's a month in...miggy is starting to heat up, and the rest should come around. Look at some Set up men....should help.

Interesting proposition. Pujols I doubt will keep up the production he has shown the last week and a bit. Goldschmidt will pick it up and will end up out-producing Pujols by seasons end. I think EE will post better number than Bruce (I don't see EE's power outage lasting). And Wainwright is a couple classes ahead of Wood. Simplifying this trade: Pujols Wood. Unless team A is really desperate for pitching and can possibly flip Pujols....I'd take B.
I'm also very cautious giving up top tier hitting for top tier pitching, for one reason: How many pitchers have gone down with elbow issues and required Tommy John so far this season? How many batters have gone down with season ending injuries?

If I was the owner of Stanton....i wouldn't be accepting this. One early season flash in the pan and price trying to rebound from a below average season for stanton? Kind of obvious to me.

Well Dickey isn't going to be worth a roster spot (no jays pitcher will be, including Buehrle), it's hunter/werth for gordon. Do I think gordon will keep it up, no, will he be a good value, yes. Is he worth those two, no.

Khris Davis was dropped, am in top spot on waiver prioity. I have ownings #$%$ (and Brad Miller as a second SS/2B). Thinking Castro is expendable
