  1. I lean towards Gleyber ... he's essentially 4 years younger in a way better stadium and doesn't have to hit behind a pitcher after his 1st AB.
  2. As a competitive dynasty owner I wouldn't trade Kershaw straight up for Benintendi. Its considerable if you're rebuilding but even then I think a competing owner pays more for Kershaw than Benintendi.
  3. KA is losing some production to dare I say an emerging Mike Williams?
  4. CMC was #1 overall, Odell was a 2nd rounder, Aaron Jones a 4th rounder. I'm not sure where the other guys went off hand.
  5. Yeah a reversal seems like the easiest way to deal with this. Just can't let this become an all the time thing. If you're only having 1-3 trades a year and you have to reverse just as many that would be messed up lol. But better reverse this trade now rather than give one team the thought of their season being ruined and another team a clear advantage on everyone else. Where were the other guys drafted at?
  6. Unless there is some clear history of this happenimg. I'm sure there's more context but if those are the basic facts then I'd say yeah obviously reverse it as it already looks like a near collusion trade.
  7. You obviously just reverse the trade if it wasn't an intentional trade. When does the number 1 overall pick get traded the day after the draft? The entire point of a trade is 2 people agree to a trade if someone here is saying that their phone put it through then you have to go off of that especially when the trade looks that bad for them.
  8. Maybe Puig, Kemp, Wood, and Farmer will help them get back on track.
  9. Whitley, Josh James, and McCullers would basically be the worst case scenario top 3 for Houston and that honestly wouldn't be all that bad. But yeah not likely a World Series winning pitching staff. As you stated Whitley can't be counted on for a bunch of post season innings at this point in his career. He's already gotten injured. But even so they have some time to make some moves. Also I read somewhere Verlander has an option for 22 mil in 2020 if he reaches certain incentives over the life of his contract. So The Stros may still have Veralnder in 2020.
  10. I never said there weren't warts and risks to him. But if he does carry over that type of production to Advanced A and/or AA next year he would then find himself probably in the top 100.
  11. The deeper the minor league system the less importance proximity becomes. Also Ben Zobrist is another example 24 in A ball (way better K%).
