Where would you guys rank him at this point in redraft? Top 50? I think definitely yes. Top 40? Possibly. Top 30? That's about as high as I think I could go, but who knows. The sky really is the limit for this kid--shame I have zero shares. He has been the top player in Yahoo over the past month and on the season is 11th in per game averages, behind Quentin, Hamilton, C. Gonzalez, B. Wallace, Kemp, Craig, Sale (P(, Dickey (P), Braun, G. Gonzalez (P). I think we can easily throw Quentin, Wallace, and probably Craig (although I am incredibly high on him) out, pitchers just don't belong in the top 10 IMO, so that means realistically he has been the 5th best player based on per game averages. And unlike the Quentins and Wallaces of the world, Trout's sample size is large enough that we can start drawing some reasonable conclusions about future performance.
So, what do you guys think about his redraft value? Would you trade Upton for him? Trout owners, would you trade him for Upton (Justin, of course). Those are the kinds of questions that interest me.
How about deep keeper/dynasty? Top 10? Top 5?
