I could land a Montero or Moore here or even take a flier on a Moustakas and be able to keep them for at least three years and if they turn out to be super stars then I can franchise them.
Last years first pick in the 6th rd was Strasburg, the year before he was drafted where he would never have been able to be kept, but due to the injury he fell a few rounds. Same thing happened with Wainwright!
I would deal 9th overall and 8th rd.
Oh, I understand now. I guess this trade depends upon how you think your team's chances are for this year. If you have a near-top team already, I would most certainly lose that pick for Ellsbury. Using that pick to get the next superstar/franchise player would be a HUGE benefit, but realistically it is mostly speculation, no? There is no guarantee that the person you pick there will break out and be a franchise guy. Ellsbury has already proven to be elite, so keeping him for 3 years is not that bad. Assuming you can win this year.
The Mets are going to bring in the fences at Citi Field, that should improve Wright's numbers.
True, that will certainly help Wright. But with the Mets probably losing Reyes and not having much else, I'd stick with Dustin. Dustin is solid, plays in a great lineup, and is a safe keeper IMO.
