Trout/Harper Blockbuster WHIR

Postby slomojo » Thu Aug 16, 2012 12:47 am

In a keeper league. Which of these two scenarios would you rather have? (You can keep up to 5 players.)

Assume that each player has great draft pick position if kept, except for Upton whose round seems somewhat borderline due to his off year.

Miguel Cabrera (with potential to keep 2 more years)
Bryce Harper (with potential to keep 13 more years)
Carlos Gonzalez (with potential to keep 3 more years)
Mark Trumbo (with potential to keep 14 more years)
Curtis Granderson (with potential to keep 7 more years)

OR

Mike Trout (with potential to keep 14 more years)
Justin Upton (with potential to keep 5 more years) *Upton counts for a 4th Round draft pick next year if kept, then 3rd Round, and so on ...
Carlos Gonzalez (with potential to keep 3 more years)
Mark Trumbo (with potential to keep 14 more years)
Curtis Granderson (with potential to keep 7 more years)

I'm being offered Trout for Harper/Cabrera or Trout for Harper/Gonzalez. My gut tells me to take Cargo for 3 years instead of Miggy for 2.

Since it is a 2-for-1, note the worthy replacement keeper, Justin Upton, who is my 6th best keeper on my current roster.

Thoughts? Do you do it?

Yes. I like the trade. You are betting that Trout outperforms Harper for the next 14 years. I think that is a good bet. He has shown that once in a generation talent.
In terms of the second part tough call. Miggy is easily top 2 player for the next few years. CarGo is top ten player for the next couple years. Miggy outperforms CarGo, but you get that extra year.

I would definitely do the Trout for Harper/Gonzo. Everyone has always been so high on Harper, but I've ALWAYS said that Trout is by far a better player. Look at the difference in AVG, HRs, and Steals. They are not even comparable. Do ANYTHING you can to get Trout for that many years.

Help me?
