This is a tough one... Honestly I think I would hold onto Hamilton here though. I think that a healthy Hamilton completes your offense more than Reyes does. He gives you the power you need with Votto, Cano, and Youk to put you over the top. You already have decent speed guys scattered through your lineup, so I don't think Reyes gives you much more than what you already have. Overall, it's a fair deal though, and if you have doubts about Hamilton staying healthy when he comes back, or if you want to take your offense in that direction (emphasizing speed) then go for it. Personally, I would not do this though. Hope that helps.

That's the key question right there. If I knew Hamilton could stay healthy, I wouldn't be considering this deal. But Hamilton's history in that department is not good, as we all know...

Health is an issue for Reyes as well. If Hamilton is healthy he's better for you IMO, so by trading him you are trading off your feeling that he might be injured later. Not a valid reason to trade someone (although a valid reason NOT to trade for someone), again just in my opinion.

I wouldn't make the trade. I think health is a problem for both and Hamilton has much more upside

I'd hold onto Hamilton, Reyes dominates steals, but Hamilton healthy dominates everything else. Stand pat.
