Straight up? At the very least, I hope it was a dynasty league.....even then you got ripped off, regardless of how well he's playing right now.

Unless there were contracts involved here, I concur.

And since I'm passing judgment, I'll throw my move out there for criticism. I traded Stanton for Hellickson a few weeks before Stanton's call up in a 14-team contract league where I'm rebuilding from pretty much nothing.

Definitely a dynasty. We keep 3 batters and three pitchers only. And the value of the player is in the round. Stanton is a 23rd rounder while Kemp was a 1st rounder. We cannot keep players drafted in the first 6 rounds and all players lose three rounds of value each year. Stanton will be a 23rd in 2011, 20th in 2012 etc...

Well, dynasty leagues are where you keep all your players....but given the rules I'd say that was a damn good deal. ;-D

Not sure that was the brightest move ever...very high risk for you. Matt Kemp is pretty solid, a couple years from hitting 27.

It's funny that all trades need to be connected to one's league settings or else they potentially all look insane. !+)

I feel Stanton will be an uber-star.

Stanton, thru exactly 81 games:

.251/20/49 with 29 BBs and 100 Ks.

And man, oh man, has he been streaky.

Super streaky. Great H2H player in leagues with a bench.
