The only two players that could theoretically be available that I would trade Chapman for are Stanton (of course...I've been pushing that trade for years) and David Price.
Naturally there are players like Trout, but that's a dream at this point.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
