I have heard all the bromides, but this guy is close to Dunn-esque. He is pretty much un-tradeable at this point, benching would be next, thoughts

I have always seen him as a Dunn type just with more hype. He might be slightly better but he has never put up the R and RBI that you expect with a 40 HR guy.

I would have no problem benching him until you see something different. I wouldn't be afraid to send out some offers though, you might be able to trade him for close to even value. Maybe make an offer on Heyward with another player and Stanton.

I was able to trade Stanton+Headley for McCutchen+McCann. Then I turned around and flipped McCann+ for Wieters+

I know everybody has heard this but...last year he hit .243 with 1 HR through April. Then he hit 12 in May. His shoulder is dinged up. His K rate is up a little but it's a small sample. I honestly think he'll end the season with numbers right around what he had last year. The appreciation for his power is absolutely universal in the game. There isn't a scout, GM, manager, opposing player who doesn't think he’s absolutely legit. He has enough MLB at bats that we can believe in him as around a .260 hitter. We talk about guys getting pitched around, but what does that really mean? Do pitcher pitch around players with nobody on? Kind of but not really. Mostly MLB pitcher try to go after guys and get outs. He’ll see enough pitches and hit enough mistakes. Hit a lot of solo home runs. With a guy on 1st and nobody out do you pitch around him? Again, sort of but he will likely see a strike in the AB. It’s just a matter of him finding his swing again and he’ll be fine. I think the kind of trades I’m seeing put forth in the comments are borderline crazy. I think he’s a great buy low target.

I agree with oak. I'm trying the get him for moose taco + laroche as a crazy buy low. The owner says he is tempted, which I think is nuts, but people are selling low

He's definitely hurting right now AND he's surrounded by AAA hitters. I assume Loria (being the jagoff that he is) will end up trading him, so I think he'll flourish in real life down the road.

As for fantasy right now...yeah, tough spot to be in. But you had to see this coming with that lineup and in that home park.

Just bought stanton in a 10 team keeper league where we keep 6 every year with no keeper restrictions or penalties. Gave up alex gordon, shane victorino, and next years 1st round pick (7th round). Thoughts?
