That's funny since I also turned down Sizemore for Hamilton. Mostly because I felt Sizemore was one of the more overrated players going into the draft, and he was on my "do not touch list" (Based on his ADP)

The only reason I have thought about trading him is because I am worried about if he can stay healthy the entire season.

I'm not dealing him unless someone offers me someone like Holliday..

I'm trying use Fielder to get him in a keeper league. The owner with Hamilton has Swisher as his starting 1B and has mentioned to me in the past that he would eventually look to sell high on Hamilton. Not sure if he still feels that way, but I certainly hope so.

Wow, I kind of thought I was going out on a limb by suggesting Ortiz or Soriano for Hamilton and that Hamilton is a no brainer top 20 player. I guess I wasn't.

I don't think there's any reason to believe he isn't for real. He has the talent and he's been in the league long enough now for the film and scouting reports to make the rounds. The only concern is durability and the effects a full season has on him.

Um I don't think right now is a "Buy Low" time

But it could be the time to Buy High.

I traded him in a twelve-team, five-man keeper league for Teixeira and Verlander a week or two ago. Hated to see him go, but Tex should put up similar numbers to him in the 2nd half, and being perceived as an injury risk Hamilton might not make it to my h2h playoffs. With A-Rod, Ortiz, Crawford, Santana, Peavy, Hart and now Teixeira I have more than enough players to fill the five keeper spots.

In my dynasty league there is no way I'm trading him, though. He has too much value, both short- and long-term.

In my non-keeper, H2H league I'm not dealing him unless someone is overpaying because he is on a tear.

Barring injuries he should finish as a top 20 player. He has the potential to be a 1st rounder next year.

I think he will be a first rounder next year. It's not like we didn't know he had the talent. I don't see this as a mirage--his time has come (a Holliday 2007 season seems to be in the works here, and Holliday was an undisputed first rounder this season).
