Torres for speed?

Should I dump Vlad, my last pick, for Torres? I could use some extra speed. Or I could try to trade Rasmus for BJ Upton or Gardner.

I wouldn't drop Vlad for Torres.

I'd probably hold onto Rasmus, but if you do deal him Upton is the better bet, IMO.

How many keepers will you have next season? I know people in keeper leagues hate to drop a guy like Strasburg, but I see at least five players I'd keep over him going into next year right now, with the potential for more.

We keep 6 for next year, and players are moved up 1 round each year. I took Strasburg in round 18 this year, so he will have sick value for many many years going forward. Other players won't, plus I will DL him and grab another player soon anyways.

Next year will be Agon in 1, Fielder in 2, Kemp in 3, Cruz in 4, Zimmy in 5. So all of those are bunched up towards the top.
