I would not scoff at a McClutchen for Trout trade.
In a keeper league you'd really do a Trout for McCutchen trade straight up? Here's the thing. I drafted Trout #1. If I wanted McCutchen I would have drafted him over Trout. So, I clearly value Trout more. So why would I trade him straight up for someone I valued less than him just two weeks ago. I told the guy if he wanted to swap he'd have to include something else or we could swap other players and he'd have to make up the difference there.
