Personally, I would hold off on this, but it's close so get some other opinions... It's tough because I really like all three players you're getting back. But at this point in the game: Price > Morrow, Choo > Stanton, Berkman < Upton, but Berkman is playing well. I like the idea of selling high on Berkman though.

It really is a potential trade which is where I have problems judging the deal. I know Berkman won't keep mashing, and he is already going on a slide with his average falling from .400+ to .360 over the last week. Morrow has great stuff and should always be a K threat but he won't be matching Price's ERA or WHIP, and Choo has struggled all year and I really starting to think he is tired from all the bat he has played. Let's not forget he had to play the Asian games so he didn't have to go to the military. If Stanton turns it on like he can then he is better Choo, and I believe Upton to be a more consistent player going forward than Berkman. It's really a tough deal for me to judge accurately.


Thanks for the help.

i would hold off on this...maybe try trading berkman straight up for Upton...Price is better than Morrow and Choo is an on base machine (stanton is good too, no doubt, but not as proven)

help me?

If Choo was Choo if the last 2 years it would definitely not be something I would consider as much but as I said I believe Choo might be tired so he may not bounce back as we expect, his OBP this year is only .311 and he is slugging .348. I understand what you mean about Choo being more proven but Stanton has more potential.


Thanks for the help.
