I like Machado quite a bit, but you don't need him. Machado will be great... in 2014 or 2015. Roll with what you've got.

Zimmerman over Bumgarner? Ballsy, but I don't like it personally. Though I like Jordan, too.

Yeah, I agree it's a bit ballsy...I can probably get Jordan in the first few rounds followings our keepers

So, as for my team...How I got them:
I have had Miggy since 2003...
Drafted Bumgarner and Posey this year
Traded Tulowitzki when injured for Felix and Pence, flipped Felix for Kershaw
Traded JUpton for Kemp while on the DL
Traded Trout for Braun (not sure how I feel about that as of now...I have the more proven player)

I am a little Biased.. I am a nationals fan. I was debating over those two. You couldn't go wrong with either one. Plus Jordan Zimmerman is bound to collect more wins than he has this season in the future.

You're doing a good job, man. I traded Trout, too. So don't feel bad. It was before he absolutely exploded, but I knew he would still be AL Rookie of The Year when I pulled the trigger. Wish I had that one back. Upton for Kemp was a great, great move. Can't believe he fell for that one. Nothing against J-Up, but he's no Kemp.

Well there were other pieces to it...
I dealt Upton, Pence, Hellickson for Hart and Kemp
Also, with Trout I got Hellickson in return and gave up CSantana...
I think overall, I have a great set of keepers, probably the best in the league...

What rookies coming in late this season or early next should I target for 2013? Machado, Profar? I have a bunch I know of, but of course not all of them will be great...who are your top 5?
