Keeper League Trade

Postby bnsd90 » Fri Jan 25, 2013 9:59 pm

League Specs-- 20 Team--27 Rostered Players--18 Keepers--8+Util--5 SP/4RP-- 5x5 (Avg, R, RBI, HR, SB)(W,K,ERA,WHIP,SV/HD)

The trade I am considering would be:
Give- Josh Hamilton and either Garza or Gallardo

Get-Jason Heyward and either Kershaw or King Felix

Do you like the trade, is Heyward a better fantasy player than Hamilton (all of the fantasy rankings have Heyward higher).

Is it okay to have J-Up and Heyward on the same fantasy team, i know some frown upon that.


My Current Roster, with keepers being bolded:

C Joe Mauer
1B Prince Fielder, Christian Yelich
2B Ben Zobrist
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS Elivis Andrus, Jurickson Profar

LF Logan Morrison, Nate McLouth
CF Josh Hamilton, Oscar Taveras, Carlos Gomez
RF Justin Upton



SP Yovani Gallardo, Matt Garza, Derek Holland, Mat Latos, Kyle Kendrick, Danny Duffy, Jeremy Guthrie, Andrew Warner, Hisashi Iwakuma, Dylan Bundy, Jameson Taillon, Carlos Martinez, Taylor Guerrieri

All Help is much appreciated.

I go with Hammy/Garza for Heyward/Kershaw i I could, Hammy is good, but has proven to be injury prone, and now streaky, plus he's got pressue to live up to in LA which may be a bad omen given his fragile pshyche.

help with mine?

I disagree on pressure?
Hamilton was Texas best player. He was the man there.
He's the 3rd man now behind Pujols/Trout.
I think it's less pressure.

I still think Heyward/Kershaw> Hammy/Garza or Gallardo, Kershaw is Cy Young winning ace whereas Gallardo and Garza are still inconsistent. Heyward is coming into his own as Griffey Jr. 2.0, Hammy is a huge injury risk, plus showed last year especially towrds the end of the seaon how streaky he could could get as he had a mediocre 2nd half and a higher than normal strikeout rate, plus there was a reason beisds money that Texas didn't want to resign him. I would would go with a power/speed and stud LHP pitcher, over fragile power hitter, and a #2 starter (especially if you can do it for Garza)

Garza isn't much.
Heyward/Kershaw, or even Felix, is a steal.

So having Upton and Heyward does bother anyone. It typically doesnt for me, but thought I would check here.
