Take Tulo all the way to the bank
I'm sure you remember all about Troy Tulowitzki and his record season that shook the world. Everyone who has to pass through a team in the playoffs with him most likely lost every offensive category. Do you want that to happen again? Obviously not, so go pick him up. Ok so since he isn't available in your 20 team mixer, your gonna have to trade for him. And trust me, this isn't going to be easy. But with Tulo, I recommend pulling out all the big guns. First start with your shortstop. Hopefully you own a Jimmy Rollins or a Starlin Castro type. Next, look at what your opponent is lacking and make an offer based on that. If he is lacking at 2B, offer him a Chase Utley or Ian Kinsler type. A package of Rollins/Kinsler/and a lower pitcher like Jamie Garcia or Daniel Hudson. This should be able to land you a player I think will be the top player the rest of the way. There is no one I wouldn't offer straight up for him, but most people won't feel that way, so you could get a decent player and Tulo for a Bautista/Braun type. Bottom line, do whatever you can to get him.
