Why would you think Trout at 30 would be on the downside of his career? 

That isn't to say don't trade him no matter what, but there is really nothing to say that at 30 he will decline. He is a MLB player not an NFL RB

 

It has nothing to do with Trout. It's a league where you only can keep him twice then you have to trade him or lose your keeper and you got think about what you might get on the back end and what the people your trying to deal too might think.

If you trade for him at 30 you have to deal him at 32 and you being dealing with people that will be thinking how much interest will there be at 34 if any at all. Trout might still have allot of value at 34 but try to get someone to gamble on that when he's at 32 and isn't at his peak anymore. 

You have to gamble to win at Fantasy Sports and you can tell someone you should gamble and Trout is worth Gambling on and he is but telling someone that is one thing. Getting them to do it is a whole another thing that does not happen all that offend 

Bottom line is this is a league that is best to keep your keepers young and players who's value will rise and not old wore they are very hard to trade.

All you are doing is trying to change your argument. You said at 30 he will be viewed as downside of his career. 

NOWHERE is anything said about 32/34. And that really has nothing to do with the topic anyway. The OP was saying he would have him for a max of 2 years, so 30. Where does 32/34 come from? 

And to your other point, nobody said to trade Acuna and Vlad for him. It was mentioned Betts, not Acuna. Betts is 1 year younger than Trout, and isn't as good.
