Oh sorry, I put those but didnt emphasize what they meant. Those were the guys I was leaning towards. I like the guys that all of you mentioned just at a cross between Moustkas and Trout as OF is thick position and 3B is pretty tight so its a hard choice. But I do have a solid pitching staff locked in at least for now

I think that I like this the best depending upon what happens to the dollar values moving forward. If they increase $5+ each season I may lean toward letting Trout walk and keeping Moustakas. I would certainly attempt to re-acquire Trout through the draft.

Fair point, but with both at $5 I still like Trout over Moustakas, even with position scarcity. Assuming you use standard 5X5 hitting cats, Trout should give you more R, SB & BA and Moustakis should give you more RBI & HR. It's close and I don't think you can go too wrong either way, but Trout at 20 years old is as ML ready as Moustakas is at 23.
