Apologies in advance for the annoying open-ended question..

My league has an early trade deadline (July 12) and an acquisition limit. I'm at 31/45, though everybody in the top 6 are at 30+. Basically, there is some urgency for me to improve my team by the deadline.. but I'm also sitting in first and leading my division by 20 games (103-55-10).

One owner I'm trying to work out a deal with has Infante, Hill, and Murphy (bench). Given my team below - who should I give up to land one of those guys? Is Gordon for a guy like Hill giving up too much? The owner has a decent OF, pitching seems to be where he's weak - unfortunately I don't have much to offer, unless I try to shop Kluber. But the back-end of my rotation is weak. I think Bailey is too much... thoughts?

Gordon and Baileyis too much. If you can deal Kluber then do it, he won't continue being this good. You have a lot of depth in the OF so I think that is where you need to start.

I opened with Gordon for Hill - owner says its fair, but would rather deal Infante/Murphy. Have a feeling I can get Murphy for cheaper.. how about J. Will or Moss for Murph? Or another pitcher?

Just not sure that either of those guys are better MI options than what you currently have. Seems like you would be dealing for pretty much the same level of production you are starting and there is no point in doing that.
