I was just asked to trade Cole Hamels for Mat Latos

Postby drez » Sun Apr 10, 2011 4:05 am

I just got a trade offer from another manager asking me to trade Cole Hamels for Mat Latos. I'm just getting back into baseball, so I'm still learning the players, but based on stats and other info, there doesn't seem to be much upside. Hamels seems like a safer bet to me.

Any thoughts before I reject the trade offer? Maybe I'm missing something here.

They are both similar. I dont think you would gain much by this trade. Latos upside would be better somewhat I suppose. But when Cole is Dealing, he's DEALING. Cole is also more durable right now.
I would keep Cole

Tough choice, but IMO stay with Hamels as he has a track record and has been durable. Latos has one good season under his belt and has already had an injury.

I'd want the Hamels side of this exchange. Easily.

Hamels for me. Better pitcher, more proven commodity, no injury concerns.
