Take this. You're getting the best hitter and best pitcher in the deal. You have to assume that Stanton will be healthy at some point.

I am super high on Jennings, but not sure I am high enough to take him over Stanton.

Anyone else? I am very concerned with his Knee and that park. And since we count triples and such I wonder if Jennings is the more dynamic option. But i dunno if he's willing to do Jennings.

Thoughts?

Clearly the guy trading him to you is unsure and is selling Leubke to get him off his roster....

Personally, I am not too concerned with his health...so I would def do it...but it all depends how you feel about gambling.

I like Luebke a lot and don't see him having significantly worse numbers than Romero given the park/upside. But it's Stanton that concerns me... if he's not healthy that is.

Its a tough call to make, if it was me i would sit back right now and not make a hasty decision.
Stanton is struggling right now and ortiz is playing great. It would be a risk.
