Which would you choose? H2H, all can be kept in the same round.

Trout seems to be the best keeper in the world, so I say him. :-D

If the cost is all the same I might think about McCutcheon a little... more "proven"

can you trade any of them for picks or whatever? if so id rather keep cutch and trade trout

In the end though if you cant its hard to not take Trout with his further upside so would go there

i wouldnt consider kershaw, as good as he is, in the face of the hitters

I'm going to have to go with Trout here.

He's looking like he could be one of the greatest players of all time. I know that seems a bit silly since he's only played 1 season, but the kid is unbelievably amazing.

Although, if you're considering a trade, you'd probably get a bigger haul for Trout and McCutchen is an excellent keeper option.

And yeah, converge has the right idea, Kershaw can't be considered with guys like these.

completely agree with the Keep McCutchen and trade Trout, the potential haul makes it worth it.

Trout is the best player in fantasy at the moment. You can get a huge huge return for him. So as other have said, trade Trout and keep Cutch.

What about trading McCutchen and keeping Trout? That wouldn't be a bad idea either. I dont think you could go wrong with either option though honestly.

I agree, that's the way to go. Trout is gonna have a sick team around him for a long time, and he's only 20 and is already the #1 player in the game... TROUT TROUT TROUT... oh how i wish i never traded him for Melky at the end of last season... :~(
