Thanks for the help on mine.
I think I pass and hold Jones.
Rutledge is getting so much hype that it is getting tough for me to buy in.

I go with Butler and Rutledge, who I think has more potential than most. Butler's progression has been so reliable, and as said above, he's still young. And as that lineup gets better and better, so will he, whereas I don't see the O's repeating. It's VERY close, but that's my opinion.

Thanks for your help on mine.
Thank you to soty for hooking me up with another awesome sig!

Thanks for helping with mine!

First I think there is a lot of risk in agreeing to a trade for a player the other guy doesn't have yet. What if he doesn't end up getting rutledge for whatever reason? He could be called out late, or the other guy used his money in a bidding war and only has $2 left.

But ok let's assume the other guy gets Rutledge; in a 10 team league, I don't see a reason to need to target him. He's being ranked on average in the mid teens among 2bmen, making him a marginal buy with a MI position in a 10 team league. If you really loved Butler over Jones I wouldn't tell you not to do it; but personally I'd rather keep Jones long term over Butler.
