I've been after Gio Stanton in my keeper baseball league for a while and finally have an offer for him - but I think it's too high at the moment. It's my Tulo/Strasburg for his Stanton/Price plus my 1st/3rd picks for his last 2 picks. I think I can talk down the draft picks but would you make that trade if the draft pick upgrades were only minor?

We keep 4 batters and 2 pitchers and I currently have Tulo/Cano/Abreu/Harper and Strasburg/Zimmerman (unfortunately just lost Darvish to TJ surgery). Cats are R, HR, RBI, K, SB, AVG, OPS and W, SV, K's, QS, ERA, WHIP. I like Stanton more than Tulo as he's younger and less injury prone but prefer Strasburg's youth to Price.

Without considering the draft picks, you're coming out ahead with this deal. Price is only 3 years older than Strasburg, and he's had a healthier career. Stanton's health is certainly much better to own than Tulo (or at least that's what the Marlins think with a 13-year contract).

That's a big ask on the draft picks, I don't think I'd do it without it being a minor downgrade for you, but I agree with Ken that you come out ahead on the players.

Who would be your 5th batter keeper?  How about moving Tulo and Cano for Stanton?
