    • The only thing I see here is potential..CJ,and Cahill could nab some real value( a Lincecum, Votto, or another higher all-around ranked player(s) )..KEEP STRASBURG..Maybin is junk, u have Jones and he's gonna be this yrs Justin Upton but if u can get value now in a bigger deal with Maybin in it, do that..1B is too deep to keep a doubles machine but like above trade idea Butler SHOULD hit for avg., if you can't get an elite avg./HR guy in a bigger trade in a 16 team league he'll help for now , DUMP REYES, TRADE HIM , IF U CAN MOVE AROUND YOUR DRAFT USE HIM AS A CENTERPIECE people are fools for him.HAMMYS/WRIST/ANKLES NEVER EVER HEAL RIGHT!!! if you find no deals for anyone..Butler, Morrison, Jones, Mous, Zimm, Stras.If u get an earlier pick for only 6 and u need speed snag Stubbs, a true # 2/3 SP, maybe Wilson or someone as good in the pool

    • Turn it around: who do you get rid of? In my order of worst to first....

      Cahill = obvious cut. Not only do you have 3 good starters already, but moving to a hitter's park and a low k rate doom him.

      Personally, I'm not big on Moustakas. I'd like to cut him and hope to get him back, but he's simply not proven much yet.

      Maybin in San Diego. Not a bad choice, but why not take the other OF's? he's clearly the least there and OF is normally cheap anyway.

      Espinosa. only thing in his favor is 2B is usually weak.

      Butler: I could argue to cut him as his numbers are basically solid rather than actually championship caliber. I keep waiting for either homers or elite batting average and getting neither. 1B is always deep and while I'd like to have a stud, could't you simply nab someone like Cuddyer and get similar or better numbers? Or take a flyer on drafting Gamel and hope his minor league numbers translate?

      Other guys...I keep. bottom line.

    • Dude u gotta figure a way too keep morrison great stud anxd sleeper I'm getting him for my team at around 8-10 bucks

    • strasburg
      wilson
      zimmerman
      reyes
      maybin
      jones

    • i can see why they gave the team up

    • Keep Butler, Reyes, Jones, Wilson and Strasburg ...trade the rest for better value... attractive rade chips you possess are Morrison, Stubbs, and Zimmerman. Go after guys like Matt Moore, Jason Kipnis, Michael Morse, Vance Worley, and Mark Trumbo.

    • keep

      This gives you a good young core to build around.

    • Espinosa
      Reyes
      Stubbs
      Jones
      Wilson
      Zimmer
      Strasberg

      Those are the no-brainers for me.

      Moustaskas is young and ranked 16th among 3B.

      Not a bad team at all. Good luck.
