    the 6 untouchables

    I know there are no untouchables, but what if you were GM and another GM said you can have my stud (for example) player if I can pick any guy from your farm system except for 6 untouchables, who would they be as of 06-04-10.

    mine are:

    Wood
    Alonso
    Chapman
    Klinker
    Mesoraco
    Y Rodriguez

    I'd still let him have anyone

    Klinker? Seriously?

    I'm not sure I have any untouchbales right now other than Chapman. Maybe Mesoraco and Soto, but other than that? Everyone is tradeable.

    Chapman's the only untouchable for me.

    I agree with the others. I say Chapman, Y. Rodriguez and maybe Mesoraco.

    Yeah other than Chapman, pretty much anyone in the minors is a trading chip to make the major league team better right now.

    Re: the 6 untouchables

    As for untouchables my list is short
    Chapman
    Mesoraco
    Rodriguez

    There are several guys who I would be hesitant to trade due to either being young, playing a position of need, or a combination of young and very high ceiling (but also very low floor).
    Cozart
    Hamiton
    Duran
    Alonso (as a LF)

    Yep, and I could let him go if the deal involved a proven stud on the major league level.

    Yea i feel the same way. I think markets for a few guys arent going to be very good so I dont even consider them. Hamilton, Duran, and Yorman, all probably have limited markets just because of how "new" they are. Not saying teams wouldnt want them but I doubt anyone really request them.

    I only added Soto to my list because his value is kinda blurry because of the position swap.

    Re: the 6 untouchables

    Chapman
    Cozart
    Mesarasco
    Soto
    Yorman
    H. Rodriguez
    Joseph (can't be traded til Aug anyways)
    Hamilton (ditto)

    Each has a very important role over the next few years.

    Chapman is a Legit #1 starter.
    Cozart has a great glove, great base-running and a High OBP at SS.
    Mez is turning into a legit top 5 catching prospect in all of baseball.
    Soto has the potential to be even better at the plate.
    Yorman could become the best prospect in all the minors in 2 or 3 years.
    Joseph could be a future closer.
    Hamilton is a human tool shed.

    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Re: the 6 untouchables

    I also believe the only 'untouchable' is Chapman. He projects as a TOR starter. No other pitching prospect does & no hitting prospect projects as an All Star (IMO).

    Re: the 6 untouchables

    The word untouchable to me implies five star major league talent.

    Roster filler guys like Klinker, Wood & Cozart certainly don't fill that bill. I never get why folks chronically overrate their own team's prospects.

    Joey Votto is an untouchable. Jay Bruce maybe. Chapman certainly. Everyone else - can certainly be had for the right price.

    Majors: Votto, Leake, and Rolen

    Not that I'd trade a bunch of the Redlegs, but these would be the three guys every single major league team could use right now, so they are my 5 star premium guys with Bruce right behind them.

    Minors: Chapman and Mesoraco

    Based upon potential and early season production these are my top two here. The next two would be Boxberger and Joseph but it's awful early to project on those two since they aren't even a year into their professional careers.

    Everything has its price. Including Chapman.
