    Big keeper trade.. Stanton, Tulo, Castro and more... What to do

    I have a deal on the table that gets me
    Stanton, Tulo, Halladay, Josh Rutledge and Marco Estrada
    I give up....
    Castro, Bumgarner, Kipnis, Medlin and Chase Headley

    I am giving up. A lot of talent, but still have decent starters left and Zimmerman for 3B, I like the deal as I fell like I am getting the best player in Stanton and its a keeper league... What do you think? Would appreciate any thoughts.

    • My 1st question.... HOW many keepers? Second question....WHO proposed this, him or you? I'd estimate that deal once posted would get you laughed out of the league.

      There is NO way in HE11 I'd do that deal. Stanton is the ONLY solid player on the list. Tulo has been a perennial DL drag, Halladay is completely shot and may be done, Rutledge is nothing of a lock and Estrada who is being shopped and sold based on a small sample size that will definitely see major regression this season. You are giving away 1 top of the rotation arm in Bum, another who will probably regress but still be better than Halladay/Estrada in Medlin, and an entire young, all star level infield.

      Just because you get the "best player" doesn't win you the deal when you are giving up an entire keeper squad taking on a pile of left overs that will destroy a team keeper team for 5 + years. You can surely get much better deals than that with quality players you have. IN a nut shell you are giving up 5 keepers for 1 and a half and a possible.

    • anythoughts from anyone on this?

    • yea this is a really bad trade for you especially in a keeper
