3/4, a homer, and 2 stolen bases today. Can't decide whether I should sell high or if he is just a mega stud in the making

wait til Pujols actually starts hitting, Trout's a stud. not sure if the power is real, but the speed and avg are. I could see him hitting .280 from here on which would put his avg around .300 for the season

That's still gotta be Ellsbury man

Runs: +10 Ells
RBI: +5 Ells or Wash
HR: Wash in my opinion...Ells isn't a 30 guy but he's definitely gotten bigger, gradually creating more and more of a power approach..Ells is def good for 18-20 HRs in a healthy season which Trout is probably very close to ..he's beating it right now but he's in a hot streak..
Steals: Ellsbury +10 probably
Average: Wash...both project out as .300 hitters

Jacoby turns 29 at the end of this season...I really think he's still a better player in every category (given his #1 spot in Boston's lineup)...no reason for me to take Trout for this year or even the next couple OTHER THAN injury concerns for Ellsbury..I just hate projecting injuries for position players though
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

Didn't think we'd be seeing these results this soon. I wouldn't sell high unless I was getting a proven beast back. The ROI on Trout could be massive, and right now he's doing nothing to prove otherwise. Wish I had this guy.

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?

I drafted him 5th in the franchise draft (although that draft is based on starting a real baseball franchise), and I took some heat for that. I own him cheap in my main keeper league and I'm pretty stoked about that.
