Thanks for helping me. Trade B is a bad trade IMO.

Trade A looks really good, but you can only start two RP. Can you pack one of your RP with one of your bench SP to another team, and get a SP upgrade? I'm not big on J-UP but I think Tulo will be really, really good when he comes back.

Trade A for the future. Pass on B.

Thanks for the hop on mine.

I'd do A and definitely not B

Tulo just has a history of being injured as Upton has a history of falling short of expectations...With that said, I will take the 125 games a year Tulo gets you at a premium position versus Upton at the OF spot.

Agree with everyone so far....trade B is a step back. Trade A is solid. Always go for the best at a position and build around it.

Could you comment on mine?

Thanks for the help.

I also like trade A. You h ave Darvish through next year, and Price/Darvish is a wash at best (Darvish probably better overall). You're giving up little (you lose Upton this year anyhow) to get the best SS and closer in the game. Go for it.

Thanks for the reply.

I like trade A for you. I don't see any incentive for you to accept the offer in trade B.

Trade B is terrible. Trade A is good IF Tulo gets back sometime soon for this season and is great longterm keeper-wise assuming Tulo can be kept . Much rather have him than Upton and Shields for Chapman is effectively a wash.

I would take Tulo and Chapman I guess. Thing is Stanton can go into your OF and you can play Hanley when healthy or just the hot hand at UTL2.
