Trade Andrus for Cargo with picks mixed in.

Hey guys,

I would most definitely do this. 80 players are being kept. So a first rounder is a fringe top 100 player.

Agreed. Cargo is a stud and well worth moving down a couple rounds in the draft.

I wouldnt do this automatically. In my mind,,,Castro and Andrus are the best two longterm keeper Shortstops. Andrus will improve year to year. There are other shortstops id rather have in a redraft but not in a keeper if im playing longterm.

I would not do this trade, yeah I think Cargo is probably a better player overall, but SS is a much more difficult position to fill than outfield, every team in baseball has 3 outfielders, and most have at least one players that is very good, maybe not a superstar but not all that far behind, there are only a few really solid SS that give you a lot of production, and Andrus is one of them, hold on to him, and in my opinion he is only going to get better, cause that Texas line-up is tough.


Help me out
