This is pretty tough, because I do think Beltre is an obvious upgrade of Moustakas at 3B. And if you are in a position to win this year then you should try to acquire a stud 3B. But I am not sure if it is enough of an upgrade to warrant giving up Moustakas' keeper value and Rasmus. Who looks like he has finally turned things around and could be a nice keeper.

I would either see if you can offer him less, or see if you can get a draft pick in return along with Beltre. If y'all allow trading draft picks.

You already have enough keepers so you wouldnt be keeping moustakas or rasmus. MAKE THAT DEAL.

I accepted the trade. Since there was no chance I'd keep either of my guys given our cap of 6, I had to take the opportunity to upgrade a power utility bat. Thanks all!
