I think I would pull the trigger. Hamilton might not be right all year, and Marcum should pick up a lot of wins pitching for the brew crew.

I think you pull the trigger as well. YOu make Hamilton's health someone elses issue and you get the top 2B in the game.

I'd make this move as well. Hamilton is a ?? the rest of the year, so why risk it when you can get back some very good options.

Ya, your team improves a lot. I live near Milwaukee, and Marcum has really been pitching well so far. I think he will emerge as a very good pitcher this season. I own Latos and Marcum and I am much more confident putting Marcum out there. Prince is also going to have a huge year. Although it is tough to give up Tex, Cano will provide pretty similar numbers.

I dont think you lose much either way, but I would probably pull the trigger

I would prefer Latos over Marcum. I think you're giving up too much. If you could remove these 2 guys from the trade, I think it would be better for you.

you get the best player in the deal in Cano, Tex and Fielder arent strides apart so you arent losing much or gaining much which ever way you want to look at it. I like Marcum over Latos, who is coming off an injury and hasnt pitched great since. The only I dont like is Grady and Wells, I think Sizemore has some upside to him. He was a top 20 pick before injury and he is young and can come back from it. Try taking sizemore and wells out of the trade and see what happens

I like the Hamilton side of the trade. If you can stomach the injury risk then just sit back and wait for the warm air in Arlington.

One good tool for to analyze these offers is to post them at TradeBashers.com. You can input the players and league details and the users vote. You see just how many people liked one side and how many liked the other.
