I'm in a keeper league, and was just offered CarGo for my Rizzo. Rizzo will be a 21st round keeper next year, and CarGo a 2nd round keeper. But obviously CarGo really improves my chances of competing this year. What do you think?
12-team league h2h, keep-3 (give up draft pick of round selected) Batter Scoring: R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG Pitching Scoring: W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP, QS

Take CarGo without a doubt, regardless of draft slot, as others have said he's a proven stud and Rizzo's sample size is too small to draw any conclusions about his future. Accept before he changes his mind! (and pray it doesn't get vetoed)
He's out of the playoffs, trying to retool with picks and low-draft-pick keepers. Yeah, Keeping Rizzo as a last round keeper for the next three years might work out for him. CarGo can only be kept for one more year. I'm still taking the deal though.
