I wouldn't go as far to say that Markakis is better than Hamilton. If you're using a three week sample size to determine that, it would be a mistake.
I hate giving up the best player, which I think you are doing, but you upgrade at both other positions enough to make it a worthwhile deal. I'd like to see the rest of your roster before giving a definitive yes/no answer, but on it's face it is an even trade.
