Well since he plays SS he will always have some value to him but yeah i think its too early to rule him a bust. He is only 21 and not everyone comes out swinging like Trout or Puig. I just dont think he was fully ready for the majors. Hopefully he will use this off season to group and work hard to improve himself. He still plays on a talented team surrounded by guys who i am sure will work with him.

Thanks, i appreciate it. Took over a 4 sport league and basketball isn't my strongest area of knowledge. I obviously know who Lebron is and have heard of Harden but the rest are not known to me. I was leaning towards Beal because of his age as you stated but wanted to make sure i didnt over value youth over experienced talent.
12 team H2h, We keep 5 scoring is PTS,STL,REB,3PM,FT%,BLK,AST,TO,and FG%.
As of right now i am keeping James Harden, Lebron James, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Mike Conley. I am left trying to deciding between Bradley Beal and Kevin Martin.

One keeper team i lost Matt Harvey last year, Jose Fernandez this year and looks like Tanaka as well. My next best pitcher is Josh Beckett who also hit the DL. Its a year where you gotta make adjustments and roll with it or your going to sink. My worst one year team i drafted Victorino, Cuddyer, Latos, Corbin, W. Myers who all missed long periods because of injuries followed by under performance of Kipnis, Longoria,Minor, Segura, Jim Johnson,Z. Wheeler. I'm fighting to turn that team around but its a losing battle.

I wouldn't sleep on Taveras if i were you. Taveras has fantastic plate discipline, he is probably one of the toughest prospects to strike out. He just wasn't given long enough to adjust to major league pitching like Springer was. and to be fair Taveras only had 3 games he started where he didnt get a hit. He's back in the minors hitting again, he will be back up soon.

not going to get much for him. i'd try to get a young pitcher who is doing well right now and hope that the other manager is looking for Choo to turn around and buy low on him. Either that or bury him on your bench until he starts hitting

you have alot of offensive bench players hows your pitching look?? If you are in the running for the championship i say go all out and not worry about the draft picks but if you are sitting in 10th or 11th place yeah i'd look to get those picks back. Decide who you want for your 3 picks next year and then start trading the other star names away.

deep keeper league the sky is the limit imo. One year league i'd think a Jesse Chavez, or Hahn kind of pitcher. I personally would rather keep him and trade someone like Justin Upton away. Polanco has been a one man wrecking crew like when Trout was brought up and i just wouldnt want him on another team. Can never have too many 5 stat players.

i didnt see how big the league is or if its a H2H but I would take side B. Getting two Top 10 pitchers who are young is huge. I understand 1st rule of Fantasy baseball is you don't trade Mike Trout but you are getting Jose Fernandez as a throw in player IMO. I understand he is out for the year but if he wasn't hurt you wouldnt be getting him this cheap. Abreu=Freeman so its Trout for Jones, Bumgarner, Fernandez. Thats a great haul for a dynasty.

id rather keep Tanaka. Desmond may give you more power then aybar but kills you in avg. IMO id rather switch between solarte an aybar depending on whos hotter at the time. Cueto hasnt been pitching consistent as of late compared to Tanaka whos on cruise control.
