    So would anyone Trade Steven Strasburg for Juan Soto in a keep 10 ball league?

    We dress 9P...Max 4RP.

    in the outfield I already have Harper, Stanton and Mookie Betts.

    My starting pitchers for sure Keeps are Scherzer and Degrom. Wheeler could fit into my last spot over Cain or Aguilar if I trade Strasburg.

    We dress 3OF and 1 U...so I'd be set at OF and U. hmmm...I'm talking myself out of it.

    I just want to jump before he's too good to acquire...and well Strasburg is getting older and has been injury frustration.

    I wouldn't mind moving Stanton or Harper but what does everyone think of Soto?

    Not a big Strasberg fan. Does he ever play a full season. You got Scherzer and Degrom, I think I go Soto.

    My only concern is I'd be full at U. Already have 3 stud OF. Of course I could trade one of them but I value each of them so much. Perhaps swap one of them (stanton or Harper) for a young stud pitcher. But is Soto worth all of this. Maybe I could swap SOTO for a young pitcher, who has more value stras or Soto? I'm guessing now Soto.

    Stras is never healthy but his 200+k potential is large...in the NL no less.

    Stras has 200K potential, but I think the wins are going to be lacking. I would swing the deal for Soto, and then see if you can turn one of your OF into a top SS.

    Excellent advice! Which SS...Turner, Correia, possible.
    Machado, Lindor and Bregman less likely.

    Which OF would you move? Harper or Stanton. Betts going nowhere.
    Maybe I move SOTO?

    Plus Soto runs. You may be able to get Turner at a bit of a discount too.

    Do the deal, then work the trades after.

    Since it's a keeper, I'd assume even a draft pick upgrade is a road you could explore.

    Pitchers seem to be very valuable in fantasy, but you legit can't win with an elite rotation in fantasy. You have a couple of top guys, then fill the rest in the middle rounds of a draft. (In our 1yr league I had Scherzer, Thor, Sale, Kershaw, Hader, Osuna, and Chapman and sucked).

    Interesting.
    Yeah bats are far more valuable. 1-3 elite pitchers who strike out a lot and your golden.
    I've since forgot about Soto since he wants a lot more than just Strasburg. He likely would do Mondessi, Cain and Strasburg. But given the lack of SBs now in MLB...I think Modessi and his possible 40SB might be too important to give up.

    New offer I have out there
    Altuve, Strasburg, Aguillar, Cain
    For his
    JRamirez,Cole,Freeman

    P.s. We don't trade draft picks.

    Ooo that's a tight one


    Altuve > Ram
    Stras < Cole (but who knows, injuries kill with pitchers)
    Aguilar/Cain < Freeman (Again, injuries)

    I dunno, I'd say it's in your confidence in if Stras can pitch 200innings. Or your confidence in Cole. That's the tipping point in this trade I think.
