Even with Lester's struggles to this point, I think I'd take a chance on him to get the best player in this deal. Trout is an upgrade over Heyward across the board, and I am pretty sure that with Rizzo and Victorino in your UTIL that you'll be just fine without Panda, too. The pitchers are quite likely to end up a wash ROS from my perspective, and while you might be giving up a bit more overall value in the deal I think you have to take one of the best players in fantasy who's showing no signs of slowing down in Trout. I'm not wowed, but it's good enough to do - since it's redraft I might consider offering Bauer because I think he isn't going to blow your hair back this season, and I'd probably even try dealing Peavy before McDonald because of injury concerns, but if those fail I'd go ahead and do it ;-D

Getting Trout outweighs every other player in this deal. Trout side wins.

Agreed.....

Once I read the subject of this in the thread I just thought to myself....if your getting Trout you win, if not then don't do it.....after reading since you would be getting Trout then absolutely do it no matter what (to an extent) so...

Good job m8 if you can get the Trout Meister!

Absolutely do this trade. You are getting Trout and he is going to be a superstar.
