I've been offered Jeter for BJ Upton. I'm considering it, as I have Drew starting at SS, whom I have no faith in, and the WW is really weak at SS. My OF is deep, if it stays healthy: Crawford (DL), Berkman, Gordon, Ethier, Upton, Gardner, Heyward.
Questions: Is Jeter worth Upton, considering Upton's recent uptick? Will Berkman/Gordon stay healthy, continue to produce? Will Heyward turn around his dismal season?
WHIR, leave a link...

I would think you could get more than Jeter for BJ Upton. At worst make it a 2-2 deal in which you get a good upgrade on the second player. If it's just Jeter for Upton I think you should pass. Why less faith in Drew than Jeter anyway? Neither is a great option but still, Jeter is basically done. He has a rare big game every few weeks sandwiched between a zillion weak groundouts and whiffs on fastballs he used to hammer.

I'm not a huge Jeter fan... I had him most of the first half and got rid of him. The dude has hit 3 HR all season, and 2 were in one game. Don't get too sucked up in the 5-5 performance he just had, total fluke based on what we have seen the rest of the season, at least so far. You get a better AVG from Jeter, but until the 5-5, he was batting .245 so that is a little tainted, similar runs, and significantly more steals, RBI and HR from BJ .... I'd stick w/BJ.
