A lot rides on other pieces of the rosters and starting requirements...

If the team getting Upton already has a a bunch OF's and only have to start 3 I wouldn't go for it.

Upton > Choo
Hanley > Rollins

What it boils down to is an Upton for Hanley trade which is pretty much a wash IMO. So to give you a quick answer without other pieces, I would probably want Hanley seeing the third base/short stop options aren't as deep as OF.

C Buster Posey, SF C

2B Brandon Phillips, Cin 2B
3B Ryan Zimmerman, Wsh 3B
SS Hanley Ramirez, Mia SS

1B/3B Michael Cuddyer, Col 1B, OF
OF Alex Gordon, KC OF

OF Lorenzo Cain, KC OF
UTIL Billy Butler, KC DH
Bench Mike Moustakas, KC 3B
Bench Adam Dunn, CWS 1B, DH
Bench Brandon Belt, SF 1B, OF

This is my team and I would be getting Upton and Rollins. I'm not really sure what to make of this deal. He has also thrown in Alexei Ramirez to go along with Upton and Rollins.

No, its a standard 5x5 redraft, rotisserie league.

i think i prefer Choo side by a hair.
I think Choo is back to his old self, and Hanley rebounds some.

Upton side for me but it is a very close. I like the position eligibility that Hanley will likely give you but I think Upton is ready to explode (hopefully figuratively and not actually).

I like Upton side. Guess how happy I was when I when I targeted Hanley last year? Hanley has to basically double his stats from last year to compete with Upton. I wouldn't bet my team on that.

Upton would be a big upgrade to your roster. Perhaps he has a man crush on Hanley and you could hold Choo and try and deal another OF?
