Justin Upton for Drew Stubbs

Postby cs3 » Thu May 12, 2011 3:30 am

my Upton for his Stubbs + a 13th pick in 2012 in a keeper league.
this may seem like a bad trade because their ADP's were miles apart but im considering accepting it.
My team is tops in the league in 5 of the 6 offensive categories, but im dead last in steals (altho i somehow managed to win it 3 times so far)
stats are Runs, HR, RBI, SB, Hits, OBP
I would give up RBI and OBP, and probably a few homeruns and gain SB's.
also for the past 2 weeks Upton sits on my bench at least half the time because Granderson has been so hot. (we start 4 OF)

another factor is that if i keep J.Up hes a 6th rounder, which is probably great value.
however Stubbs is a 13th rounder, which may be even more valuable?
do i pull the trigger?

heres my roster:
Batters
C: Carlos Santana (C,1B)
1B: Miguel Cabrera (1B)
2B: Jed Lowrie (2B,3B,SS)
3B: Kevin Youkilis (1B,3B)
SS: Starlin Castro (SS)
OF: Matt Holliday (OF), Curtis Granderson (OF), Jose Bautista (3B,OF), Jacoby Ellsbury (OF),
Util: Prince Fielder (1B)
BN: Justin Upton (OF), Eric Hosmer (1B)
DL: Tsuyoshi Nishioka (2B,SS)
Pitchers
SP: Brandon Morrow (SP), Michael Pineda (SP), Daniel Hudson (SP)
RP: Craig Kimbrel (RP), Sergio Santos (RP)
P: Jordan Walden (RP), Huston Street (RP)
BN: Jon Lester (SP), Max Scherzer (SP), Mat Latos (SP), Brandon Beachy (SP), Bud Norris (SP)
DL: Brad Lidge (RP), Stephen Strasburg (SP)

Personally I like Stubbs more. They are both great outfielders with fairly equal numbers but the difference in their average year to year production is Stubb's stolen bases. I would pull the trigger I think Stubbs is in a better lineup and in my opinion is more likely to "breakout" this year.

No. Stubbs is good, but Upton has MVP talent. Not close to me.

Upton could be an MVP but honestly Stubbs is doing it right now, plus you get a great keeper upgrade round-wise, and a pick. I like the deal, maybe try to squeeze out a 10th rounder or something?

I would never trade Upton in a keeper, unless i was blown away.
Stubbs and a pick isn't imo.

i tried to trade to trade Granderson, seems nobody is a believer but me in my league.
I just couldt get anyting of value for him, so hes worth more to me than what id get in a trade
