From a keeper basis, I much rather have Trout.

That said, the other guys you are getting are worthless longterm and you would be giving up probably 3 of your keepers to get 1. You may find that weakens your last 1 or 2 keepers going into next season too much since you have to keep 12.

I love you getting Trout in a keeper but I think you are giving up too much here. I would keep what you have.

I think this is what you would have to pay (probably even more) to realistically trade for Trout in a keeper format BUT I agree with the others and wouldn't do it. Trout's cost to acquire is just so incredibly high that you ultimately do far more damage to your team overall than the benefit you receive in a league keeping 12 each. I can see this kind of overpay in a keep 2 or 3 setting but advise against it in this situation.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
