Haren and J Sanchez for Hamilton?

Postby Alkaholik » Wed Mar 30, 2011 12:43 am

10 Team H2H League.

Was offered:
Josh Hamilton, OF - TEX


for my:
Dan Haren, ARI - SP
Johnathan Sanchez, SF - SP


What do you guys think? Outfield seems pretty common and can find a lot off the WW and pitching is always key, plus i'm not sure if Hamilton can stay healthy or even be close to repeating 2010 numbers(see 2009 slump year).

Thoughts??

so you don't have any worried about trading pitching for a common outfielder position or him staying healthy/slump year?

I dont know why, but hamilton just raises red flags all over me for a possible injury or slump year.

I wouldn't. You only have so many pitchers, and the WW won't replace them nearly as well as Hamilton would upgrade your already strong OF. It honestly seems like a horrible trade for your end.

I never like being on the smaller side of a 2 for 1 though, so I may be biased.

this is exactly what i was looking for. if you go by rankings or ADP this seems like a slam dunk, but OF is so common and will be tons on the WW. Pitchers are hard to find.

i was thinking i offer him:
Dan Haren, SP
Bobby Abreu, OF

for Josh Hamilton, OF

No, not at all. Hamilton is far from common and of course there are injury concerns but I very rarely look at hitting and pitching as equal with hitting being far more valuable IMO than pitching. You'll be left with Kershaw, Weaver, Cahill, Hudson, and Volquez. Really like those first 4 and with Volquez you never know. It is ALWAYS easier to find pitching on the WW than it is to find hitting. ALWAYS. Hamilton is light years ahead of Bobby Abreu. I don't see your offense being beat at all with the addition of Hamilton. I make this trade without looking back.

I personally do not like or trust Hamilton what-so-ever so maybe I am biased, but I would not do that deal at all. Your offense looks loaded, and your pitching is great as well. If you make that trade, your SP takes a big hit, IMO. Still have solid studs, but you wont have the great K rate depth. I wouldn't personally do it. However, if you really think Hamilton is a guaranteed 35/110/10 player, then I would pull the trigger for sure, but I don't believe he will stay healthy to get those numbers.

help with mine?
