                I'd say there isn't much difference in value between Upton and Sandoval. You don't seem to need power any more than steals, and Matusz is a potential rookie of the year (and its a keeper league).

                  Sandoval / Snider is not a significant enough upgrade over Young / Upton to lose Brian Matusz in a keeper league.

                  Based on 2010 projections, with the former you are probably looking at a combined .300 AVG, 45 HR, 165 RBI, 150 R, 7 SB while the latter will net you about .285 AVG, 30 HR, 145 RBI, 165 R, 45 SB. Although you're passing up the opportunity to improve on three stats (RBI is really hard to judge though), you still keep a HUGE advantage in stolen bases and an advantage in runs while keeping one of the better young arms in the game. Matusz is projected for between 80-130 K's and 5-10 wins (with respectable ERA and WHIP), depending on innings pitched.

                  • You think Young and Upton will get those numbers or Sandoval/Snider?

                    • Julio Lugo to Baltimore. Doesn't say who Baltimore is sending. Probably not much, if that.

                      • Losing Upton hurt big. Sandoval is a good acquisition because he is a decent backup to Young and Pena. Fowler can be better than Upton as your starting CF if he manages to steal more than 30 SB annually. Fowler at Coors helps lot for power categories.

                        Brian Matusz is unproven but young. I dont usually chase young southpaws because it is too darn inconsistent to count on during first 3 years of their service time.

                        If Upton rebounds back and Matusz pitches fairly well then you will get jacked. Otherwise, you will have to pay attention on SB department because your lineup will get killed by frequent strikeouts which may hurt your average and home run for most of days per week. Reyes is a risky factor right now since you dont have any promising SS to replace Reyes this year.

                        I would not trade Upton away right before this season begins but hey, it is the first year. Good Luck and Have a fun....

                          it would be hilarious if they dumped Andino. Having Lugo makes sense. Roberts is not ready.

                            Roberts isn't ready for what, exactly?

                            What?

                                What the hell are you speaking of? Do you not realize that Brian Roberts is an all star 2nd baseman?
