Which second baseman should I trade for Jose Reyes?

One of my fantasy teams ended up with four second basemen... I have Rickie Weeks, Gordon Beckham, Dan Uggla, and Kelly Johnson. My starting shortstop was Rafael Furcal, and he went on the DL for 4 to 6 weeks with a broken bone. I already have a pitcher on the DL, so I can't put him there.

Someone offered me Jose Reyes and Delmon Young for Weeks and Andre Ethier. I don't want to give Ethier for Young, so I'm going to counter the offer.

My roster is:

C: Geovany Soto

1B: Ryan Howard

2B: Rickie Weeks

3B: Michael Young

SS: Rafael Furcal (DL)

OF: Shin-Soo Choo, Andre Ethier, Ryan Braun

Util: Travis Hafner, Gordon Beckham

Bench: Dan Uggla, Gaby Sanchez, Kelly Johnson

So, here are my possible trade ideas:

Trade A: Reyes / Delmon Young for Weeks / Kelly Johnson

Trade B: Reyes / BJ Upton for Weeks / Ethier

Trade C: Reyes / Rasmus for Weeks / Ethier

Trade D: Reyes / Dunn for Weeks / Uggla

Trade E: Any other ideas...? He also has Tulowitzki...

I could add a SS from waivers... Orlando Cabrera and Ryan Theriot are available. That would require me to drop someone because I already have a pitcher on the DL.

    A is the best, if he will go for it. C is the one he may go for. I wouldn't even offer B, and C is intriguing but Pronk is on fire right now. I guess you could move Beckham to 2B

    If you can trade fr Tulo that is the best option.

    If not, I'd drop Furcal and add one of those waivers guys and trade fr a catcher or more pitching, if you have those four 2b there has to be demand fr 2b in yr league cause pretty much all you don't have are Kinsler, Phillips, Walker, Pedroia and Cano (and Utley but he's hurt, long term too)...

    Trade A - why would anyone trade 4 two guys of the same position?

    Trade B - reasonable

    Trade C - reasonable

    Trade D - again, why would anyone trade for 2 guys of the same position?

    C would be the best trade for your team, IMO. Rasmus is very good.
