Is Hamels Even Worth It...?

hamels just makes me sick, i burned my #1 waiver on him in 3 leagues, and in one dropped a pretty decent pitcher in bush for him, and the guys been pretty useless.

even worse ive passed up good guys on the ww because i had faith in hamels, not anymore...first good player to pop up, he's getting dropped for

I dumped him for Lester today even in a keeper (we only keep 6). I've got a lot more guys on my team Id rather hang on to right now.

Looks like Anthony Reyes may be the prize rookie this year, and I got him!

Only keep Hamels if you have think it's a high probability he'll be picked up right away.

If you think he's safe on the wire, then drop him. To me, he looks pretty safe on the wire right now. Just be ready to pounce if he has a good start or two.

Yeah I am pretty disappointed in Cole's performance as of late. You can see that he is going to be a great pitcher someday, but it's going to take some games like today for him to figure things out.

I am going to drop him.

Wow, let the whipping begin.

Let's not forget that this guy might have been the top pitching prospect in the minors 2 months ago. Dropping him for guys like Reyes, Miner, Lester, in my opinion is a rash move. The walk rate is a little high and out of line with his minor league numbers so it's fair to say that should eventually regress. In addition, the offenses that he have faced haven't been a bunch of stiffs.

Anything less than a 12 team league I am fine cutting bait with him (in a redraft). Other than that I think you have to be patient.

Because thus far he hasn't produced up to the hype

Somone dropped Ervin Santana and I grabbed him, dropped him for Santana, figured it was a no brainer.

that might be true, but it was hardly a huge margin. Guys like Billingsley, Sowers, Lester weren't doing all that bad in AAA either. And the talent level weren't extremely considering guys like Liriano, Cain are already in the majors. Philip Hughes might be the best SP prospect in the minors right now, but that's really not saying much considering the depth of SP in the minors now. Nobody ever denies that Hamels has talent, but there's this big question mark with his health. I don't see anything wrong with dropping him for Lester(lesser prospect, healthier, better team) and dropping him in a 12 teams redraft. If you are in a keeper or dynasty, the time to sell him has passed and it would be foolish to drop him or to sell him for next to nothing right now, might as well keep him.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.
