It might be giving up to much, but it makes your team better. I don't mind overpaying for the best player in the trade, so I'd do it.

i don't know... scherzer is being tipped to make that extra jump to the elite and that's never a bad thing. who's on waivers? youk, choo, and ichiro are all going to give you a boost in BA, so you can take a risk on someone like pena or reynolds who you know can really boost your power numbers, but might not have been picked up because they have such low averages.

Definitely make that deal. Ichiro is overated especially in a 5x5 IMO and that Texas lineup looks like it's going to put up huge numbers all season.

You may need to look at adding another SP down the line but when you have a chance to get a bat like Hamilton, you take it.

Check mine?

I would do this in a heartbeat. Scherzer has only had four good months in his career, so you don't really know what you are getting...plus I agree, you could use the power more, and Gardner will provide the SB for your team...I'd make the trade.

I don't see it as a no brainer, but I do think it is a good deal for you.

You are lacking power in the OF and although I am pretty high on Scherzer I think you can afford to give him up to get the best player in the deal.

If this is roto league with IP limit around 1400 IP, I like this trade.
once Morrow comes off the DL, your pitching looks strong even without Scherzer, and in a 10 team league you should be able to find good spot start pitching on the wwire to boost IP.
If H2H, than its a bit more complicated.

In a 10 team league, top players are a premium. Definitely take Hamilton, who's capable of 1st round numbers, for the aging Ichiro and overrated Scherzer.

Here's mine, please help if you can: viewtopic.php?t=426418
