Upton for Ellsbury ---> am I crazy???

Postby mytechmafia » Mon Jul 09, 2012 9:07 pm


H2H, 10 Team, 2 Keepers. At the moment, I consider Bautista and Upton my keepers (round 4 and 5 respectively). Now if I trade Upton and get Ellsbury, I am getting a 7th rounder in Ellsbury. Upton would be a 5th round keeper for me. I feel pretty confident power wise with my team to lose a little going with Ellsbury than Upton.

Your thoughts??

Eh, IDK...Upton is poised to have a great 2nd half (or at least, that's what I keep telling myself -_- ) but the round Ells is in who definitely benefit you. And if her returns to form, it could be a nice acquisition. I'd wait for other responses, lol, since I'm kinda stuck on the fence with this one.

Talks of a trade to the pirates,,where he would hit infront of Cutch. Upton could be the last person id trade right now. Even if the trade doesnt happen i wouldnt consider it. The "amazing" lineup us Sox fans have been waiting for is still way off....pedrioa,middlebrooks both have issues and crawford had a setback in rehab.
