I'm out of it. This is a points league where we keep 7, no salary implications. As it stands, my keepers are:
Johan, Peavy, Billingsley, Braun, Wieters, J Reyes, and Beltran/Ethier.
I've been offered J Upton in a deal for a Beltran, Ethier, and Bills, among others not in the picture. If I do the deal I'll end up with J Upton and likely Pedro Alvarez. Would you rather have J Upton and Alvarez to keep or Billingsley and either Beltran or Ethier?
that's tough b/c alvarez is a little unknown. if he makes the majors next year, he could be great. it depends on your risk factor i guess. i'd rather keep ethier over beltran, but upton over ethier. i would probably stick with ethier and billingsley. i would not give up ethier, beltran, and billingsley for upton and alvarez though.
