10th Round Pick
First one to offer me a 4th round pick for Liriano (I've explained why he's worth that on fleaflicker: gets one of:
9th Round Pick
In addition to one of the players listed above.
First one to offer me a 5th round pick for Ike Davis (De Aza went for a 5th rounder this year, Davis has been absolutely killing it since June 1) gets one of the following:
9th round pick
Buy together and you get discounts:
Rollins + Davis = 2nd +7th
Rollins + Liriano = 2nd + 4th, and get my 7th in return instead of my 9th
All three = 2nd +4th + 8th, and we'll discuss an assortment of players to be thrown in by me as well

Asdrubal Cabrera is for sale, and I am primarily looking for draft picks. I would consider a more creative deal, but I'm not likely to be interested in a trade that does not improve me for next season. I have had a lot of offers for Cabrera this season; now's your chance.
I took Cabrera in the fourth in the 2012 draft. After we subtract out the keepers, that should equate to a first or second in the 2013 draft. That's not a demand, but that is something I will be considering when I evaluate offers.
I still have plenty of potential keepers and will listen to offers for guys like Morse, Headley, Parker, Teheran, Bauer, Betancourt, and V-Mart. I'd be willing to talk about any of them up until the 2013 draft. I'll probably keep some of those guys, but I'll listen to offers on any of them.
I know the trade deadline is looming, though. If you let me know that you want a deal to get through before the deadline, I'll try to help you out.

I was tempted to keep Brandon Mccarthy before getting Weaver. He's an ace. And Fister is getting his shit going to post-break. I also have Tommy Hansen and Matt Harvey, maybe not keepers, but could be difference makers in the playoffs for you.
I'm only looking for draft picks though.
I've also got Ryan Howard and Justin Morneau (hot fire lately), Will Middlebrooks, Colby Rasmus and Salvador Perez (22 year old stud catcher for Kansas City, check his stats).
I wish we could keep 7, because I'd love to keep Perez and McCarthy/Fister for next season.

I'm trying not to tank, though. It probably looks like I am since I had Clevenger, Valbuena, and Juirjens in my lineup this week, but I'm really not.

In my opinion, the top 100 players from this year should all be kept, with a few top prospects, and some players that are clearly underperforming this year due to time missed due to injury (ie- Kemp, Tulo, Longo, etc.).
Yet, I have 2 players in the top 80 on my team who simply are not in my top 5 (Freeman and Rollins), and another player I think is deserving as a top "prospect" in Frazier. Make me a deal (either a 2 for 1 involving a better keeper, or draft picks), for any of these guys, or my other keepers, so that I can hold on to them. These players should not go back into the draft pool.

No official word, but I'd guess Rolen's going to be Wally Pipped when Votto comes back. At the least, they'll split the playing time between them. But Rolen isn't signed through next year, so I'm sure they'll hand Frazier the starting job come spring training.
Are they keeping Frazier in the lineup once Votto returns?

That leaves two spots for three SOLID pitchers. I need to move one ASAP.
I'm not asking for a lot. Just a draft pick or two. They could probably be upgrades as keepers for some. Definitely solid options for those still in contention. I don't have a 3rd or 8th round pick, and I'm not saying that's the price, but keep that in mind. I could even move two of them if the price is right. Get in on this! I can't stand having great players on my bench, it kills me when they outperform the guy I started.
