Machado and Goldy or Trout? WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Fri Aug 23, 2013 4:59 pm

I am pretty sure I know the answer to this already, but just curious what everyone else thinks.

Do you consider all 3 of those players top 10 for the next 3 years or is Trout expected to out do both of them going forward. They are all young, so trying to gauge their value for a keeper league and how much of a difference there is between them.

Machado is not a top 10 player in a keeper league. I'm an Orioles fan and still wouldn't use a #1 - #10 pick on him. Trout is clearly a #1 or #2 pick. I'm on the fence regarding Goldy. I could see some people picking Votto, Fielder, and Chris Davis ahead of him at 1B.

Help with mine?

What type of league is it? What's the scoring? Who are your other keepers? I'm thinking that you have to take Trout.

C - Posey
1B - Goldy
2B - Pedroia
SS - Desmond
3B - Miguel Cabrera
OF - Cutch

I like this set best, though you cut throw out a 20/20 SS in Desmond if you wanted and keep Machado instead but I'd rather have a 20/20 thin position stud.

Never even thought about keeping Desmond. So you think Goldy will be better than Trout...since in your advice I would not be keeping Machado anyways? I am just curious. I have always valued your opinions and feedback, but just want to make sure Goldy is going to be "THAT" good, since Trout has been the one with all the fuss. Thank you MadDog

Are you in my league? XD. No Trout is the best player....by fair a top 2 long term dynasty player...no way is Goldy better than a 30/30 non-cheating OF (we hope). I'm just saying in your keeper situation I see no point in it. I would offer Bruce+Machado instead for his Trout to keep Goldschmidt.

Well there is no way he goes for that...he is not very sure of letting Trout go, but I told him via email it was my max offer for him...I was also considering trading Bruce/Wainwright for Chris Davis...If that was accepted and I had both Davis and Goldy, then should I do it for Trout...

If I got Davis and traded for Trout, my keepers would be (Davis, Miggy, Posey, Cutch, Pedroia, Trout)

If I did not get Davis and traded for Trout, my keepers would be (Miggy, Trout, Cutch, Posey, Pedroia and Desmond)

If I did not do any trade I would end up with your suggestion (Miggy, Cutch, Goldy, Posey, Pedroia and either Desmond or Machado)

- What is your feedback on that?

Also, wish I was in your league. I think it would be a nice challenge.
