Justin Upton Keeper Trade, Help Please! WHIR

Postby khann0n » Sat Feb 19, 2011 10:15 am

I was offered Carlos Santana and Jacoby Ellsbury for Justin Upton and Matt Weiters. I am not the biggest Weiters fan, but still am wondering if I'm giving up too much.

It is a dynasty league, so you keep your entire team each year.

you would be giving up to much...Ellsbury is coming off a tough injury and his wheels are key...i think he will be decent but why yake a risk on an injured player

can you look at mine...need some help on a pick

J-Up is the clear better option without even thinking about Wieters.

I wouldn't dare give up Upton's potential for that package.

Don't make the deal. The difference between Upton and Ellsbury is much greater than the difference between Santana and Wieters.

I like your side a lot more. Not only is Upton the best player but you also have the most upside.

Agreed with all above, however if you can move Weiters in a different package to get Santana then I would ask the question again. Or a better return than Ellsbury for JUP.
