Ottoneu 12 team 5x5:
McCutchen ($36 to keep) and Dansby Swanson ($8)
Eloy Jimenez ($7) and Ozzie Albies ($8)
McCutchen is a borderline keeper at $36 but with inflation, he’s probably worth it. Jimenez for $7 seems like a lot, as he’s likely not to play in Chicago until September at the earliest, but as a top 5 prospect he’ll go for more than that in the draft. The tough part of the trade for me is the Swanson/Albies part. Swanson HAS to be better than last year, right (I mean, he’s only 23)? His ceiling is comparable to Albies, it’s just that Albies will get more SB. Am I analyzing that correctly?
