Jose Bautista for Mike Trout and David Price WHIR

Postby REBEL5 AC » Tue Jun 12, 2012 12:10 am

That will bring my four keepers for next year to Kemp, Stanton, Bautista, and HanRam.

Good move? WHIR

I'm biased, but I would personally rather keep Trout than Bautista long-term, and Trout + Price over Bautista short-term.

Bautista has been back to mashing, and is certainly the best player in this deal. However, Trout is looking more and more like a force for years to come, and Price is right around the top 10 for pitchers. This is one deal where you are getting the best player in the deal, but I think I'd pass.

I keep Trout as one of my 4.
Bautista is back to hitting for a low BA. He had a lucky babip last year.
One scout said, by the end of the year, Trout could be the best player.

Trout is too good to let go. In almost any kind of keeper you couldn't pry him off my team with a crowbar.

Keep TROUT!!!! no way I make this trade, especially in a keeper league. I'd keep Trout at the minimal price you acquired him for and enjoy his elite production for years and years to come. Bautista is not worth it now and he definitely won't be worth it in the future. Throw in Price and it's an even biggeer no go for me. If you make the deal your opponent will be laughing all the way to the bank for the next 5 years. Not a good thing, stick to your guns!

There is no way I would make this trade. Trout gives you solid production in all categories and is a rookie, he is going to be a top of the line player for a long time. And now throw in giving up Price too, and that is way too much in my opinion.
