    Did I give up too much to get Stanton???

    13 team Keeper league trade:

    Give up: David Wright, Yoenis Cespedes, Jim Henderson and my first round pick next year.

    I get: Giancarlo Stanton, Ryan Zimmerman, Huston Street and Chris Johnson.

    The first round pick can be made up if I get out of contention and start trading off non keepers, so I'm not too concerned about that, but I did give up Wright and Cespedes. My thinking is Wright is in 30's and Cespedes is always injured. Not to mention Stanton is much younger and Zimmerman despite his injury problems (Wright has had his too) is younger than Wright. Street isn't off to a good start on a bad team and Henderson has been good even though Axford could win the closer role back.

    Here's my roster now:

    C - Wilin Rosario
    1B - Allen Craig
    2B - Jason Kipnis
    SS - Jed Lowrie
    3B - Ryan Zimmerman (DL)
    OF - Carlos Gomez
    OF - Mike Trout
    OF - Giancarlo Stanton
    UT - Nelson Cruz
    B - Chris Johnson

    SP - Jermey Hellickson
    SP - Wade Miley
    SP - Patrick Corbin
    RP - Edward Muceija
    RP - Addison Reed
    RP - Huston Street
    RP - David Hernandez

    DL - Jason Motte
    DL - Cory Hart

    I'll pick up one more bench player since Zimmerman goes to the DL, but this trade was more about the future than this season. My pitching staff is one I'm going with week by week as I missed out on a lot of the top arms in the draft (most of whom were keepers).

    Let me know what you think of the trade.
