I am in a 12-team, seven player keeper league and was offered Mike Trout for Jose Bautista, Kris Bryant and Craig Kimbrel. I won my league last year and drafted Bryant in the first round (8th round overall) with my first pick. My thinking is that I probably would have traded Bautista and Kimbrel along with a first rounder for Trout before the draft started, but now it seems like a massive over-payment at this point, especially with all the hype surrounding Bryant. I also have Evan Longoria and Matt Carpenter (but I can only play two of them at a time). The guy I”m trading with has Anthony Rendón as his third basemen and I think he’s desperate given his injury status. Should I wait and see what Bryant does when he comes up? I think long-term having Trout would be nice, but moving all those assets for him would weaken my chances to win again this year. Below is my team.

1. (1) Paul Goldschmidt  (Ari – 1B)
2. (24) José Bautista  (Tor – 1B,OF)
3. (25) Evan Longoria  (TB – 3B)
4. (48) Carlos Santana  (Cle – C,1B,3B)
5. (49) Aroldis Chapman  (Cin – RP)
6. (72) Craig Kimbrel  (Atl – RP)
7. (73) Dellin Betances  (NYY – RP)
8. (96) Kris Bryant (ChC – 3B)
9. (97) Jake Arrieta (ChC – SP)
10. (120) Brett Gardner (NYY – OF)
11. (121) Glen Perkins (Min – RP)
12. (124) Neil Walker (Pit – 2B)
13. (129) Matt Carpenter (StL – 3B)
14. (144) Leonys Martín (Tex – OF)
15. (145) Taijuan Walker (Sea – SP)
16. (157) Danny Duffy (KC – SP,RP)
17. (168) Wil Myers (SD – OF)
