I give
Domonic Brown & Mike Trout plus a round 9 & 10 pick in next years draft
I get
Carlos Beltran & Nick Swisher plus a round 1 & 2 pick in next years draft (draft is 10 rounds)

He also has Jose Reyes who I'm interested in. Thoughts???

Hmmm, i'd say yes go for it. Brown won't be keeper worthy for at least a couple years and Trout might not even come up til September. The fact that you get a 1st and 2nd rounder for next year i think is the deal breaker, plus you get some service for this season. You might regret it in the long run though.

I'd have a tough time pulling the trigger even if there are a lot of reasons to. Swisher especially is sneaky good in an OBP league. What kind of player can you get with a 1st round pick if you're keeping 20?

Seems almost like a dynasty league to me, and in a dynasty league Brown and Trout are gold. Your team is already stacked with young talent and if you can survive 2011 the future should be very bright.

It comes down to if you are playing for this year or the future. In a vacuum I would do the trade. The players you get back are decent and the picks, like you said, allows you to stock up on prospects or sleepers next year.
