Yeah, I absolutely take that trade. Your outfield will still be fine without McCutchen, but adding Tulo to your infeild will be a big boost. Do it.

Help here? Looking to try to get some value for Utley:

I'm a position scarcity guy and with the rest of your outfield you should be fine. I would take Tulo. You can always find outfielders who will break out but not shortstops.

OF's are easy come, easy go...Tulo is an elite talent and he seems to have put his slow starts to rest, thankfully as I knock on wood to not jinx him b/c he is on my team...Do it with confidence

help me?

I would do that too, but stash Drew for when he comes back. I wouldnt want to have Tulo get hurt and ruin the season, but think about it this way. Were Bruce or McCutchen your #1 picks? Because I know Tulo was the other guys #1 pick, and you would be getting him for 2 decent, not even elite, outfielders who probably went in rds. 4-6 considering you have Arod, Kinsler, Price, Hamilton and Upton. This is a first rate steal IMO, and OF are super easy to replace, heck you dont even need to with your other OF, just need to find some UTIL players. That means practically ANYONE that comes out of the woodworks this season, and trust me, in a 10 team league there will be, even though you have ridiculously large rosters

I think both McCutchen and Bruce have the potential to climb the ladder and be Top 5 OF soon...may not be this year. My concern with Tulo is the injury track record (much like Hamilton...if you lost both of them for 40 games this season, it would be a big blow). That said, I understand the position scarcity argument and the "get the best player," so I can't say it's a BAD deal, but I think you are losing two guys with HUGE potential. Personally, I wouldn't do it...and I really like Tulo.

Help w mine?

Thanks guys. Ended up going Hamilton/Bruce for Tulo/Lind. Glad I got to hang onto Heyward/Upton/McCutchen for youth and upside (and especially McCutchen for steals that are very needed on my squad).
