In a 3 player keeper league and got another owner who is a bit keeper obsessed. I'm trying to focus on just winning this thing and less on the keepers.

My roster is below and I've been offered....

Yansil Puig / Dominic Brown / Matt Latos

for

Giancarlo Stanton (I'll probably throw in Gerritt Cole and Marcell Ozuna to even it out)

Pull the trigger???

You are giving up Stanton? I don't think I would do that. Too much relying on guys with no track record. Getting Latos is nice but I don't think it is enough. There is still some worry about what happens when Crawford and Kemp come back. They aren't going to bench either of those guys or Ethier. So Puig might be back in the minors by the end of the month.

I'd do that deal in a heartbeat, personally. Stanton hits for power, sure. He's a very trick-or-treat hitter though. Both Brown and Puig are a) healthy b) mashing c) not going anywhere. Plus you get Latos? Wow...

This isn't necessarily anti-Stanton, but Brown and Puig have both shown serious ability in the minors and majors (albeit small-ish sample size in the majors) and Latos is a stud.
