Tough call on whether or not to keep him, I guess it would depend on how far out you project guys and how tough it would be to find a similar type prospect over the next 2+ years.
I honestly think I could get him back next year (or later) after people forget about him, plus it's a pitcher we're talking about anyway
We keep 15 each year and I usually keep at least 10 hitters with Hamels, Verlander, Marcum and a stable of closers anyway, so I think I'd rather add Goldschmidt to my crop of Mous, Hosmer, Lawrie, Sands, etc. and just hope another one or two of them sticks and puts out to the tune of being keep-worthy. I have an ancient team that's been hitting the wall for the last few years after going back-to-back, and I am making a concerted effort to finish in the money but get MUCH younger/cheaper going forward.
