just trade him rizzo for moustakas straightup. right now they're worth about the same value (i.e. they've got pedigrees, rizzo had better minor league #s this year, and whilst rizzo has a quick HR and a bunch of walks in the majors, moustakas hasn't had time to do much yet) cuz this way you can both keep them and that's a totally fair trade IMO, especially if you want moustakas to keep.
HOWEVER, trading stanton for starlin just so you can keep moustakas? dude, don't do that. unless starlin can somehow cycle up and develop a 20HR bat, he isn't going to be that valuable... his highest fantasy value was early in the year when he was hitting .330+ and people thought he'd be worth something so they'd give up someone with actual fantasy value for him... but like, don't give up stanton, especially if you're going to keep him! stanton's best days are ahead of him, and as he develops his hitting technique to where he can hit .280-.300, combine that with his raw power and you're looking at a beast.... stanton could be a perennial 35+ HR guy with 100+ RBIs, and if he hits like .290 or .300 he's going to be a better hitter to the point where he could maximize his power... then WATCH OUT!!!!!!!
so dont do that.... counter w/ rizzo for moustakas cuz that's totally fair... both are blue chip prospects, both came up at the same time, both have the same realistic ceilings and floors, and both of them won't be kept unless you trade for them. IMHO, the guy wanting mike stanton for starlin castro to do that is trying to fleece you.
