Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I just dealt Stanton/Crisp/Texeira/J.Smith(LAA) for Chris Davis/Teheran/Rosenthal. Was this a good move? 11 team 5x5 roto. This is my team after the trade:
1B- C Davis
OF- A. Gordon

I have to disagree with that. Cutch is one of the only OF I would consider equal or greater than Stanton. Trout/Cutch/Stanton to me are the elite level OF guys for 2014. Then CarGomez/Puig/Jones/Bautista are right behind them.
Sorry, but I don't like that deal. You needed a 1B for sure to upgrade Hosmer, but oops you're still playing Hosmer anyway after this trade. Maybe I'm wrong and Davis has a huge 2nd half, but Stanton is a first round guy right now. If I needed 1B and I was willing to give up Stanton I would have wanted a guy like Goldy or Encarnacion. Maybe Abreu. You did upgrade your SP and RP, though. So that' s a plus.
