Both Rasmus and Upton were highly touted prospects with great pedigrees, and all 4 players are 5-tool guys. I'm really struggling with which two I should attempt to trade off and which two I should keep.
Depends, does your league count triples, doubles, singles, or smooth home runs?
Rocinante2: you know Rocinante2: its easy to dismiss the orioles as a bad team ofanrex: go on Rocinante2: i'm done Rocinante2: lmao

True, its a 10-team, small keeper league.
Not to turn this into a question for the DTKW forum, but I'm trying to get a better understanding of whats expected from Rasmus going forward, especially given the fact that there are people like Seth Smith available on my waivers. He had an awful May after a hot April. Has the book on him made its away around?

That has now changed. Rasmus is no longer sitting routinely against lefties and more than that, he's figuring them out. Two HRs in the last two outings against lefties. Rasmus is the man. I'm really happy to have him on my team(s).
