    Drop Michael Taylor. At least if Stanton makes an unexpected recovery he will produce unlike a healthy Taylor.

    Hence the reason you get almost no respect on here. You default setting is to call someone an idiot. Now the part I didn't mention.

    I haven't drafted Stanton in at least 2 years. The only teams I have him on are Keeper league teams. So I drafted him rounds 3/4 not round 1.

    Oh and those OFs I have:
    1. Stanton, Blackmon, Bautista, Betts, Herrera with Benintendi on NA
    2. Stanton, Ellsbury, Herrera, Betts
    3. Stanton, Blackmon, McCutchen, Bautista, Betts

    I'll take my chances with say a Kimbrel over say Hudson Street anyday.

    I draft Stanton when the pick is worth it. BUT I also do it knowing he has an injury history and draft accordingly. Usually 1 extra OF and 1 less SP. Once Stanton goes on the DL I grab a SP off FA.

    I'll also draft elite closers as long as they have a very good k/9.

    Mookie is a lot closer to Trout then you think.
    Trout this year 38/12/40 7 SB .313 avg and a WAR of 3.1
    Mookie this year 51/14/42 8 SB .288 avg and a WAR of 2.6

    Yes Trout does lead in OPS .980 to.884 BUT Mookie leads in Total bases 128-110

    As much as I think #$%$ Strong can be completely off base with a lot he says if both these guys stay healthy Mookie has a legit shot to beat Trout.

    Oh and before everyone jumps on me for ignoring Bryce. Harpers WAR is 1.8 right now. So #$%$ is completely right about Harper a third of the way through the season.
