He doesn't have a 10th round pick but is offering his 11th and 14th round picks giving me two picks in each round.

I would like to see you get Santana and an arm back, then take Beckham with your next pick. Is there a possibility in that?

So, the offer on the table now is:

Utley, Montero,16th round pick for Santana, 11th and 14th round picks.

What say you guys? I just love the potential of Santana and can pick up Beckham, Nunez, Casilla, Roberts, A.Escobar, Lowrie, Rodriguez, Raburn at my MI and 2nd Base positions and use the extra draft picks to bolster my arms. Final thoughts?

Thanks for helping on mine...


Right now, you have two question marks. Utley because of his injuries, and Montero because he's never done anything in the majors before. Also, Montero is now in Seattle, where young hitters have a way of falling off the cliff.

Clearly, Santana is the best player in this deal. I think I'd do the deal and then grab the best 2B available with my next pick. I've been burned by the question marks too many times before.

What did you go with on this?

FYI, this came in per Rotoworld:

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro admitted that the patella tendinitis in Chase Utley's right knee probably will never go away and he's not sure Utley will ever again reach his previously-elite production.

I think Santana is the #1 keeper C. But you gave up nice pieces. I like Montero a lot, but i think you did ok.
