    Posted: 15 Jun 2013 at 2:44am
10 team 5x5. I am in first place and have a 23 point lead in a league I usually win since the competition is very casual. So I am only looking to improve my keepers at this point. We keep 8 per year and redraft once every 5 years(2nd year right now)......Trying to trade J. Upton for????? What should I be looking for as my 8th keeper in a deal trading Upton and some extra pieces? Another SP? Hitter? Harvey owner wants Upton in a deal. Don't like keeping catchers.

Keepers:

1b- J. Votto
2b- R. Cano
3b- M. Cabrera
ss- T. Tulo
of- C. Gozalez
of- J. Upton
sp- S. Strasburg
sp- A. Wainwright

How many SP are you starting? Personally I would trade for a stick and preferably an OF just one who's more consistent than Upton he's way to up and down for me

I'd trade for Kershaw or Verlander and then move Strasburg.

Wild prediction:

Strasburg will never strikeout 200 batters in a season...because he won't be healthy enough.

Harvey owner wants J. Upton?  Hopefully he's not asking straight trade.
 
That being said...I'll never take Upton.  I just don't trust him.  Such high expectations and I don't want to 'wonder' if he's worth a 1st round pick.  In a heartbeat at 3rd, and would consider it in late 2nd...

He won't deal Harvey straight up for Upton in a keeper league. He wants more. Upton hitting 240-250 this year.

Would you give up Upton straight up for Harvey?

Yes. I think he will finish as a top 5 SP on everyones rankings next year. Upton is heading towards the 230's in BA. He has looked like crap after the first 4 weeks. He is hitting 210 and has 3 hr's since April.

I'm not in love with upton either but there is a chance he could be one of the best offensive producers in baseball in the 2nd half.
