Here is a fanpost from a reader that I thought would stimulate some conversation. It's a decison to trade for help this year vs. passing up the future potential of Stephen Strasburg.
Don't normally look for advice on this stuff but here goes. My team had a rough year last season, so I find myself with the #1 overall pick this year which is presumably a ticket to Stephen Strasburg.
I'm inclined to stay put with Hanley and SS but realize the bust potential (this season) is enormous. Am I passing up anything too good to say no to?
Should the reader make this deal?
