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.

[quote="rjforlife"]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?[/quote]
how many do you keep i think when its all said and done call me crazy justin upton and curtis granderson should end around the exact same numbers
what if u went to trade curtis granderson (because of his hotness right now ) get your drew stubbs get a even better pick next year i no were all lovin curtis granderson but lets not be prisoners of this small moment
