Background: I'm currently in 2nd place in my league, but 15 points behind 1st. I'm leading in 5 out of 7 pitching categories, but the guy in 1st is close behind me in most of them and ahead of me in Ks. His pitching staff includes Wainwright, Gallardo, Carpenter, Wandy, JJ, Broxton, Cueto, and Oswalt, so he's got a good chance of overtaking me in Wins, ERA, WHIP, and QS. Meanwhile, he's dominating the offensive categories, while I'm middle-of-the-pack in most and close to the bottom in Rs.
Another leaguemate has proposed trading me David Wright and Yunel Escobar in exchange for Reynolds, Fuentes, and Weaver. He's willing to negotiate, but he really wants a closer and a slugging 1B. I would love to get my hands on Wright, since I could really use the help in Rs, Hs, SBs, AVG, and OPS, but I don't want to give up Reynolds. I'd like to make an offer involving Votto and a pitcher, but I don't want to give up too much. Which of the following trade offers would be reasonable for Wright and wouldn't harm my pitching staff too much?
Votto & Fuentes (if I traded a RP, I'd pick up Kiko Calero or some other MR)
Votto & Franklin
Votto & Hoffman
Votto & Weaver
Votto & Vazquez
I'd give up any of those pitchers except Vazquez. I'd offer them in that order.
