I appreciate all the feedback!

So what I am thinking is that my team has a few beacons of stardom with a few maybes and hopefullies thrown in. If I can leverage Stanton to gain some depth and make some of those maybies into sure bets (Desmond for example), then it might lend my squad more consistency.

I think you do the trade no matter what, I was just curious which of them you'd get to keep next year. I suppose you could always repackage later and get stud keepers if you're out of contention (which you probably won't be anyway).

OOOOOOOOOOOO

I've been in FB chat with the guy, and i just floated it and he said "I'd definitely be open to that trade."

So fellas, the question becomes this: Is my team better if I do this trade? I have a 7-year win streak with this keeper league, so it's a balance of putting my best team out there every day with also getting young talent since we keep 6 going into every season... but no player can stay out of the draft for longer than 3 years (so, since Stanton was drafted in 2011, this is his third and final year owned by a team before he must go back in 2014).
