    Harper/Upton trade

    Which side would you rather have... Justin Upton & Martin Prado or Bryce Harper & Wilin Rosario? It's an 18-team 6x6 dynasty league with OPS. Prado or Rosario would be in a Utility spot on my team.

    • Harper

    • This would work better with a lineup card of your team. What's at stake for 3b/C is key in choosing the sides. I don't see any change of value between Harper/Upton for at least 3-4years when Upton gets on to the aging side of playing. So, moving forward how secure is your 3b to C positions? Rosario has a huge upside with however long that Col. lineup stays in front of him to have impressive RBI numbers for a Catcher with those HRs. Prado, for all its worth I think has no upside beyond what he's done. But, at same time he has less downside(Being a safe pick) over Rosario. This is a dynasty League, and I'd probably lean on Rosario and Harper being younger and huge upside. I think players of Prado's caliber are churned up pretty frequently between 3b/OF and in 2years from now there may be 10more Prado's floating around who have/or are about to enter MLB from the Prospect ranks. A Power Hitting Catcher with Coors Field his Home? No other C will lay that claim until Rosario is no longer on Col. Nevermind, he's going to be hitting behind Josh Rutledge,Tulo, and Cargo. If there's to be a Catcher to hit 2Grand Slams in a game and the bet was who does it next I'd wager my money on him.

    • The points made about Upton/Prado are all accurate and valid, but if it's a keeper league, I take Harper/Rosario all day every day.

    • pretty even trade. depends on needs but both teams get value

    • Upton/Prado. Upton is good and Pra is eligible at a few positions and hits .300. These two are less likely to be up and down. Harper was streaky last year and needs to be consistent for a whole year. Ros put up good numbers last year, but he gets a day off every week and really isn't much better then most at his position.

    • Uptons numbers should get better being in ATL and not being the only guy with a bat....dont get my wrong ARZ had great bats but ATLs is way better. Im not as high on Harper as other people are. I was always in the Trout camp even 2 yrs ago when they both started getting all hyped....but.... I think id rather have Harper then Upton. Plus Harper is eligible for all 3 OF spots at least going into the year
