strasburg for sabathia/b.j upton

Strasburg to me may not do what we all thought he would. Sabathia is still very good and upton should go on a monster run

I give strasburg get Sabathia and upton

I would do the trade. Buying BJ Upton low. I think he'll start hitting better soon, and you put Strasburg and his potential arm issues behind you, and get a sure thing top 20 guy.

Please help with my question.

If it's a redraft it's not that bad although I'm not sure how well BJ fits into your roster, maybe a slight upgrade over Rasmus but it's going to be hard fitting him in when Stanton comes back.

If it's a keeper it's insane, CC is a 34 year old pitcher who is approaching 3000 IP. Even with potential arm issues for Strasburg I'll take that upside over the 1 or 2 years that CC has at a near top level (regression has already started imo. K/9, GB%, HR/9, ERA and WHIP are all the worst of his career since he was a rookie)

ID keep Strasburg here. CC will break down and Upton looks lost. I like the upside of Stras more than getting these other guys.

please help
