I think there's a psychological factor at play here -- many folks have a hard time dealing with sunk cost. If I drafted Ryan Zimmerman as a 2nd rounder, I'm going to have trouble trading him for less, even if his injury precludes him from putting up 2nd round stats. At least in my league, owners seem to care about draft position above all.
I'm trying to overcome this mindset after I passed on several decent offers for Kinsler last year and got burned when he never came back strong. Ditto Carlos Quentin the year before.
