yet again, it is hard to give a good answer with so little info. Who does the team getting multiple players drop off their keeper list with so many added players? who does the Trout new owner team now keep in place of the players he let go?
Theres a decent chance both teams make out allright here, but depending on rosters and league rules 1 team might be winning big. We just don't know w/o knowing the roster implications and league set up. Can Cutch be kept as long as Trout?

I know Cutch is great, but Trout is at another level. The other guys involved (Moose, Montero, Rubby) are replaceable.

Side A. And really I am not sure how close it is. We see this every year after a rookie has a great year (and I know no one has done what Trout just did). Last year it was Hosmer and Lawrie and look what happened to them. Trout has a ton of talent and will should be very good but that trade is a little over blown. McCutchen has multiple seasons of showing what he can do and I could see him and maybe another player for Trout if you truly believe in Trout (though I think a straight up deal is probably about right). But adding in three very good young players is way too much. Give me the proven veteran who is still very young and three past top prospects with still major upside over one guy who had a couple unbelievable and very likely unrepeatable months.

I'd do McCutchen & Moose. Otherwise I think that you're giving up too much. I am real high on Montero & Rubby.

Could you give Cutch/Montero/Rubby? I'd rather have Moose/Trout than those 3, but it's tough to say another combo he would take.

I would be fine with this. Still a little more than I would like with the history of rookies and their second year but Trout is pretty special so it could be worth the gamble.

I'd probably be ok with it, but I would try my best to keep Rubby. I think that it would be a mistake to give up on him now. If I were in the Dodger front office I would have preferred to give up both Webster & Zach Lee before parting ways with Rubby. Truly special stuff.

Agreed as well. I was surprised that he was the arm they would deal. I grabbed him in all my dynasty or large keeper leagues. He might not be great next year but I think he should be a very solid SP.
