I'm looking to rebuild the roster I inherited. Looking to move players for young everyday players (specifically 3rd/4th SP, SS or OF), prospects, and/or picks.

Trade Block:
Adam Dunn (high power #'s, only 34 years old)
Ichiro (.306 avg. 206 hits)
Vernon Wells (26 HR)
Any other OF 30 years old (M. Ordonez, J. Damon, J. Gomes, J. Bay)
Ryan Hanigan OR A.J. Ellis OR A.J. Pierzynski
R.A. Dickey (2.84 ERA, 100 Stamina)

I need a deal to knock my socks off. Even though this is a rebuild, this isn't going to be a fire sale. Also willing to hear offers on other players.

Looking for a better solution than SB/AB to indicate SP rating. See above. SB/AB is an awkward stat that does not take into account walks and HBP. SB/TOB (times on base) is a better solution. SB/SBOp (stolen base opp) is even better.

3B/AB could be incorporated in the formula (and I'm sure already is to a certain extent).

Currently, it is only SB/AB and 3B/AB with some degree of weight. Correct me if I am wrong. Is it as simple as AB / (divided by) 3B + SB ??

While it is understood that SP affects not only stolen bases, it is the primary rating that allows a batter to steal, bunt for a hit, and hit for better avg.

My example above shows that Juan Samuel 1984 should also be a 10sp rating vs. Rickey Henderson 1980 - because Samuel had way more 3B and a much higher SB/SBOp than Henderson.
