    Help with a trade

    I'm a long time reader but never posted much, but I need some advice...

    I'm in a 12 team points league, with the following point values:

    Batting - 1 point each for Total Bases, RBI's, Walks, and Stolen Bases,
    Half a point (.5) for Runs Scored, minus 1 point each for Strikeouts and Caught Stealing

    Pitching - Win - 10 points, Loss minus 5 points
    Save 5 points, Blown Save minus 2 points
    Quality Start (starter pitches at least 6 innings and gives
    up 3 or fewer earned runs) 2 points
    Shutout 10 points
    Earned Run allowed - minus 1 point each
    Innings Pitched half a point (.5) for each inning pitched
    Strikeouts - 1 point for each

    My team looks like this:
    C - Paul Lo Duca
    1B - Dan Johnson
    2B - Josh Barfield
    3B - Miguel Cabrera
    SS - Carlos Guillen
    OF - Adam Dunn
    OF - Lance Berkman
    OF - Nick Swisher
    DH - Kelly Johnson
    SP - Jake Peavy
    SP - John Lackey
    SP - AJ Burnett
    SP - Bronson Arroyo
    RP - Bobby Jenks
    RP - Dan Wheeler
    Bench
    C - Mike Piazza
    OF - Delmon Young
    OF - Josh Hamilton
    SS - Stephen Drew
    SP - Daniel Cabrera
    SP - Tim Wakefield
    SP - Phil Hughes
    RP - Jason Isringhausen

    The trade that I'm proposing to the other guy is:

    Berkman, Dunn, Jenks, Lackey
    for
    Carlos Beltran, Cole Hamels, and Joe Nathan

    He's not biting yet...any suggestions to improve it or that might be more palatable???

    Saves aren't that valuable, so do you really need Nathan?

    I'd try dealing Berkman, Dunn, and Jenks for Beltran and Hamels.

    Thanks!

    I tried that proposal, but they're not really wanting to budge on Hamels, and he's the one I wanted out of that deal...however, they did counter with these two proposals:

    Mike Gonzalez, Scott Kazmir, and Juan Pierre
    for
    Bobby Jenks and Delmon Young

    or

    Scott Kazmir, Jason Giambi, Melvin Mora, Jaun Pierre
    for
    Miguel Cabrera and Delmon Young

    I'm not really enamored with either one...
