Delmon Young?

I have Young on my team, but if you're not in a keeper league, I see almost zero value. He's a rookie, no matter what. You can't predict or expect him to be a stud even in the second half this year. He may do it, but I wouldn't hold him in a roster spot for four months to find out.

I'm holding him, but with the intent of keeping him for next year, when I can expect some performance.

I don't see why they would trade Dukes. With his anger management problems they would not get back anything remotely close to what he should bring. Besides, he isn't a threat to play in the majors this year anyway.

in a h2h keeper league that dosen't have a minor league system is it worth holding a roster spot for young when you have other needs? I was offered Cabrera for Matsui and Young. I giving it serious consideration.

I would make the trade in that situation. You've got lots of solid keeper options (Helton, Figgins, Rolen, Matsui, Sizemore, Halladay, Willis, Schmidt, Wagner). I don't know that Young is going to be to the point in his career where I'd want to drop ANY of those guys for him. You're getting MCab who is still VERY young and is a first rounder in most redrafts to replace an older Matsui and a Young who you'd have to either drop or drop someone worthwhile to keep.
