Ryan Zimmerman/Justin Upton

Postby nathan050904 » Fri Feb 23, 2007 4:30 pm

Ok, I made this deal in my dynasty league. I have built my team around young talent and alot of prospects. I traded Ryan Zimmerman for Justin Upton and a top 10 pick in the '08 draft (the draft is basically the same as the first-year player drat that the majors does every year), and a top 20 pick in this years draft.

I have Alex Gordon, Brandon Wood, Evan Longoria and Andy LaRoche at 3B. So I thought that Zimmerman might be tradeable.

This leaves me with a future outfield of Delmon Young, Justin Upton, Chris Young, Lastings Milledge and a couple others. What are your thoughts?

Do you think Upton will be a superstar?

Yes he will be. His ceiling is as high as anyone is the minors. There is a good reason he was picked before Alex Gordon in last year's rule four draft.

Upton didnt do that bad actualy... granted he was way off our projections because of the talent and potential he possess. but he just didnt perform up to par last year. i think he'll adjust this year tho, he also had some nagging injuries last year.
