Upton will only be eligible at the position he will start at next season, which will be OF. If for some reason he is playing 2nd, I already have Kinsler, who has awakened again. For Upton to qualify at any other position he needs to play 40 games. Eligibility is not based on previous years, but the opening day depth chart/rosters.
This is a points league, not a roto, so the steals don't mean too much.
Talent wise, the first deal is probably better, but I am also giving up more. Garza will probably get up this year and Humber next year. Any other thoughts?
