I personally like Votto better than Hamilton. And Votto has position scarcity on his size.
This is a re-draft league.
Plus with Kuroda, Hanson, and Smoltz taking up space on my roster, and if I took on ARam and Kazmir, that would be 5 guys not playing with 1 DL spot.
If ARam's season is done, the trade would STILL be reasonable...
Kazmir is having a tough time finding his groove. But he throws GAS and has proven himself at the major league level. And I love Josh Hamilton - especially after watching ESPN's "Homecoming" on him. Again, their stats in times where they really count will make this trade worth your while. And if A-Ram can get healthy...well, he's A-Ram.
I gotta agree -- do it. Hamilton is a great buy-low candidate. Kazmir can turn it around and will be awesome if he does. Aram is a side issue. If you drop Kuroda, Kazmir is a better option anyway. Although I think a lot of Sheffield at this point, he's bound to cool off and Hamilton alone is enough to make up for him and Votto. Aram is a bonus.
