I would go with Lindor, because from what I have read he has the best chance of sticking at shortstop for a decade.

Lindor for his overall game. I am not sold on his '15 bat though. I expect some regression
The Goldenschmidt Ticket

2nd guessing a trade i made: My Harper for his Odor, Conforto & McCullers, all would be keepers, roto, lots of categories - thoughts?

Lindor

I think you don't trade guys like Trout and Harper. I think the beta is high on all three of those prospects. If they all pan out, it might be an even trade, but I wouldn't want to risk it. Sorry.

Apparently Braves think Mallex Smith can be a similar player as Inciarte, which is one reason why they are open to moving Inciarte. Are they being a little too optimistic with those expectations of Mallex?

You got taken, badly IMO
Paul Swydan

Well, they have the luxury of buying in on all of their prospects right now, because they're not going to be good for 3 years anyway. Inciarte is good, but he's not an irreplaceable player. If they can get good prospects for him now, there's no reason not to move him.
Jeff Zimmerman

Yes on Smith and Inciarte, I am not sure either can hit.

Christian Yelich or Gregory Polanco..who do you like for the next few years?
Paul Swydan
9:58
Leaning Polanco, but I like both.
Jeff Zimmerman
9:59
Think Yelich for fantasy, but like Polanco's overall game for real life baseball

Don't the Rockies have a top 5 farm system, while the Padres have a bottom 5 farm system?
Paul Swydan

That's the argument for the Rockies, sure. The Padres have shown themselves to be more creative though, and more willing to make dynamic moves in free agency as well.
Jeff Zimmerman
10:01
When have the Rockies ever made a good move in the last 5 seasons?
Paul Swydan
10:02
That too.
In any case, I think that's going to do it for us tonight. Thanks for hanging out, as always. We'll see you next week!
