Trade Eithier - Is this a good trade for me?

Postby redsoxsucker » Tue Mar 29, 2011 12:06 pm

I get either:

Hamels or
Cain

I give up:
Ethier

Is a 10 team 5x5 league where I really need some SP help and the other guy needs some pop. Would you make this trade if you were me or try to package Ethier with someone else and get some offense back form him in addition to the SP?


This is my team presently:
Geovany Soto, ChC C
Miguel Cabrera, Det 1B
Chone Figgins, Sea 2B
David Freese, StL 3B
Stephen Drew, Ari SS
Nelson Cruz, Tex OF
Andre Ethier, LAD OF
Matt Holliday, StL OF
Kevin Youkilis, Bos UT/1B/3B
Jacoby Ellsbury, Bos UT/OF

Bench
Chris Young, Ari OF
Aaron Hill, Tor 2B
David Ortiz, Bos DH


Daniel Hudson, Ari SP
Colby Lewis, Tex SP
Tommy Hanson, Atl SP
Josh Johnson, Fla SP
James Shields, TB SP
Ian Kennedy, Ari SP
Ryan Franklin, StL RP
Jose Valverde, Det RP
Jaime Garcia, StL SP
Erik Bedard, Sea SP
A-Rod is a little B*tch

I'd make the deal for Hamels. You have the outfield depth to trade Ethier, and Hamels should help your team immensely.

I agree, Young could easily take his place. Even though I am a Mets fan who hates the Phillies,I'd take Hamels.

I agree to making the deal for Hamels. You can afford the loss of Ethier because you could use the pitching help.

Another vote for Hamels. You've got teh OF depth and Hamels is finally controlling his cutter to add another pitch.
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.
