Dynasty trade my Trout for Vlad, Bogaerts and Fiers

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think? Should I pull the trigger? currently I have Kingery at 3B Polanco at SS. I can move Kingery to the OF since he is eligible there.

In a word, NO.  The best player in fantasy and you want to give that up for a decent SS, an under-performing rookie and a marginal SP?  Vlad has not established himself or even performed that well so far and you are trading for him as if he was already the next Arenado.

I appreciate your insight, didn’t say I wanted to give Trout up I just wanted to gauge the return value I should be looking for. Thx

As a general rule, you never trade Trout unless someone really makes you an offer you cannot refuse, like 2 first rounders+.  Simply is not worth it otherwise imo from a risk vs. reward perspective.

Thanks for that, and an owner last year offered me Trout for C. Seager and Benintendi and I jumped all over that. I have done a good job I think so far in dynasty as far as making the right deals, and I am in a deep league 24 teams with 30 man rosters so  it makes it tougher to trade.

This. I would refuse this trade in my sleep.

That third piece needs to be better.  Vlad and Bogaerts is a solid start for a Trout package but it needs that last piece to put it over the top before I would consider it

I don't think it is a bad trade offer. But I wouldn't do it unless you got a better pitcher than Fiers.

You have to put everything into context.

Vlad is only 20. 99% of guys that age are in A or AA.

Vlad is doing just fine.

A 102 ops+

He's already above league average.

Hank Aaron at age 20 had a 104 ops+

Nolan Arenado didn't make majors till he was 22, posting a 85 ops+

Vlad will be a top 20 player

Not a doubt in my mind

I still take Trout side, because Trout is a top 5 player all-time

Agreed.  A top-2 (Yelich) player demands multiple high-end, SAFE players in return.  Bogaerts is there.  Vlad isn't yet.  And Fiers is a laughable third piece.

Return the favor?
