Trade deadline today

I've sent the following: My Bumgarner and Joyce for his Todd Frazier, Brett Anderson and Marcum.

I'm out of moves and the trade deadline is today. I need a 3B and more SP. Trading in this league has been difficult over the years, so I felt I had to give up my best pitcher, and I know he regretted dropping Joyce at the time. I'm also hoping he won't view Frazier as untradeable due to the possible loss of playing time when Votto bets back. It's doubtful he'll pull the trigger, but let me know if I should run to cancel the offer.

C - Matt Wieters, Salvador Perez
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Danny Espinosa
3B - Chris Johnson
SS - Jose Reyes
CI - Anthony Rizzo
MI - Allen Craig
OF - Ryan Braun, Jay Bruce, BJ Upton, Matt Joyce
UTIL - Yoenis Cespedes, Paul Goldschmidt
BN - Drew Stubbs
DL - Dee Gordon, Brett Lawrie
SP - Cliff Lee, Madison Bumgarner, CJ Wilson, Gio Gonzalez, Brandon McCarthy
RP - Jose Valverde, Rafael Soriano, Addison Reed, Ernesto FrieriĀ 
P - Alfredo Aceves, Andrew Bailey, Mike Minor, Kris Medlen, Ross Detwiler

Frazier's not going to be playing every day as I wrote the other day... Trade's not great...

He came back with:

My MadBum and Goldschmidt

for his Panda, Marcum and Lance Lynn.

I've already got near droppables in CJ Wilson and Aceves, so I don't want to take on Lynn without getting rid of my headaches, and I really need two viable pitchers.

Do I:

A) Accept
B) Counter with MadBum, Rizzo and Joyce for Panda, Marcum and Anderson
C) Counter with MadBum and Goldschmidt for Panda, Marcum and Anderson
D) Counter with MadBum and Goldschmidt for Panda, Marcum and Matt Moore
E) Other: He has Capuano, Parker, Moore, Harvey, JZimm, Wainwright, Manny Machado, Jose Bautista.

Forget I mentioned Bautista please.

And I should have mentioned this is 6x6 H2H with QS and OBP in addition to W and AVG.

He came back again with my MadBum and Goldschmidt for his Panda, Marcum and Lance Lynn.

I'm not gonna be happy stuck with CJ, Aceves and Lynn ROS but without this trade I might not have a viable 3B and not enough SP.

Do I accept?
