Trade Carpenter for Hamels?

Postby rasto21585 » Thu Mar 31, 2011 8:27 pm

In my 20 team h2h dynasty league, I was offered cole hamels, yunel escobar and jack cust for my chris carpenter, jj putz and ryan ludwick. Do I make this deal?

Yes. Take Hamels. Carpenter is always an injury risk and he's old as balls. I swear I could watch baseball tonight all night. Hamels had a bad spring but come on it's spring. Putz could do stuff, but tell me honestly you don't want a piece of that Phillies rotation

you kind of got screwed in the dynasty league when Soriano signed with the Yankees so I don't think losing Putz will hurt you too much. Cole is obviously better than Carpenter and I think being able to start Escobar at SS over Theriot pushes the trade in your favor.

Please help

I make this deal easily. Hamels is better than Carpenter and much younger. Sure you lose a closer, but with him being your only one (and an older one at that), you aren't going to desperately miss him.
