Id keep Ellsbury.

Is their a team in your league that value the youth movement? if so you may want to dangle Strousburg, Castro, and the rest of your youth throw backs and see if you can get a good price on them. Maybe a better catcher than Weiters, i know he is suppose to be amaizing but you never know.

I'll certainly be looking to upgrade somewhere before the draft, but pretty much everyone shuts down trade talks from the deadline through spring training, so there's not any deals going to happen right now. And Weiters is certainly one of those spots I'll be looking to upgrade.


As for the youth stuff....honestly, I might be *the* youth movement guy in this league. If you look at the 9 guys I'm pretty sure about keeping right now, only 3 of them are over the age of 25. But I've actually dealt off a lot of youth this year.

Pre-draft -- I gave Kinsler, Gallardo, and McCutchen for Kemp, Peavy, and H. Kendrick. (I wanted Kemp pretty bad, and I also wanted to deal away my "backup" 2B...also, of the 3 guys I gave up, I was only going to keep Kinsler heading into this year, so it felt like a 1-for-1 deal to me.)

Deadline-ish -- I gave Prince and Garza for Pujols and Buerhle.
Deadline-ish -- I gave Tim Hudson, Smoak, and Domonic Brown for Zimmerman and Sean Marshall. (In both those deadline deals, Prince was the only person I was going to be keeping into next year, and now I've got Pujols and Zimmerman instead)

I'd keep them both and dump Wieters. In a 12 team league there will be solid C available late in the draft
