Hanson for Posey? WHIR

Postby ryetoast93 » Sun Mar 27, 2011 10:23 am

I can trade Tommy Hanson for Buster Posey right now. I love Hanson, but I can allow for some loss in pitching because my staff is easily the best in my league. On the other side of the deal, I own and am starting the worst catcher owned in our league in Kurt Suzuki. If I make this deal I would drop Suzuki and pick up Jordan Zimmermann, Gio Gonzalez, Wade Davis, or maybe even Leo Nunez for some extra saves. FYI, most of the good teams in my league have 2-3 closers. So I guess I'm asking two things, 1) do you make the deal and 2) who would you pick up after you made it? Thanks, and leave your links.

i like both and hanson and posey. your team can suffer the loss of hanson this year. so i would probably make the trade. but how many keepers might affect my choice too, do u keep everybody?

id pick up zimmerman or gonzalez

No we keep 4. Posey would definitely be considered, as would Hanson. Its hard to give away Hanson and his 200 K potential with a 3.25 era and a nice whip and only get back 75-20-75-.300 type numbers....

Get Posey. Hanson is good, and likely will get better. But SP is very deep this year and your team has plenty to absorb the loss of Hanson. It's tough to find good catchers.

Agree with the above ... get Posey, drop Myers for Gio or Zimmermann. You have great depth and quality at SP...
