Keeper league. 12 teams. 5 keepers with a luxury tax for a 6th Scoring includes for hitters: R, H, 1b, 2b, 3b, HR, RBI, BB, SB, K, FPCT, AVG, OPS pitchers: IP, W, L, CG, SHO, SV's, H, HR's, BB's, K's , Holds, ERA, WHIP It is a head to head league. 6 teams make the playoffs with 2 byes Keepers: 1B- Pujols 2B- Kinsler 3B- Longoria CF- B.J. Upton RF- Hamilton
SP- Hamels to be dealt for pick 8 first round (really round 7 because we use our first 6 picks on keepers) and a 3rd rounder (pick 32 overall)
Should I attempt to deal Hamilton and pick 10 (I have 3 first rounders) for Reyes and a 3rd rounder (pick 31 I believe)? I talked to the owner, and they would think about it. They made a big play for Hamilton last year at the deadline, and I declined. They haven't started looking at stuff for this season, which is why I didn't get more info other then they'd think about it. Should I do it? I'm torn, because I like some SS in the draft, but Reyes is elite, and would be a great fit with what I have. Means my speed is in great shape. Any help appreciated, and leave a link and I'll be happy to help. Thanks.
Hamilton is .300/30 some good RBIs, but Reyes is like .290/70, and at 26 his power might finally get there. Reyes is a top 10 guy that wins you a cat, and as was said this is really like a 7th - 9th switch which isn't that huge of a deal.
Reyes combines one of a kind production, runs and steals, with a one of a kind position, shortstop. There will always be more outfielders. That's why I am hesitant to trade Reyes away on my keeper as well. His worth is only topped by Hanley Ramirez in most formats, and even then it is close between the two because I think Hanley will steal a good deal fewer bases.
So, probably the best player in fantasy and the draft picks don't mean a ton, so I would do it.
Like everyone said...do it. Reyes is just nasty. He has a pretty good BA had over 200 hits last year scored 100 plus runs and scored 60 plus rbis. Reyes will contribute tremendously to all of your hitting categories and is imo right up there with hanram.
