should i make this trade

Postby 49ers2724 » Tue May 10, 2011 2:24 am

Ok so im in a 10 team, money league, 5x5 daily lineups. ive been talking to one of the other teams and i could prolly get josh hamilton if i was to give up ryan howard and pineda. I might also get someone back in return. My question is would you do this? My outfield seems week and i have todd helton, huff and billy butler (only if needed) who can play first, and kendry morales on my dl which will be another option. also pablo will be back and can play the 1b/3b slot lets say if helton or morales is starting at first.
So would you do this trade? seems like i might have to many corner infields when my team gets healthy?

yeah i dont see this being a problem. Morales comes back he can play at 1B, and Huff can take the spot for now. Howard Strikes out alot. Josh Hamilton should be solid when he comes back. Pindeda is pretty good though but u seem to have the pitching covered. Maybe try n get a lower tier pitcher out of it see how that goes.

Disagree. Howard strikes out a lot, but that doesn't matter in a 5x5 league. He puts up a decent avg with great counting stats. Morales isn't coming back anytime soon, and Hamilton is made of glass. This isn't a terrible deal but I wouldn't do it.

I think Pineda is a real deal. I think he has the potential to end up as top 20 SP at the end of the season. With Hamilton still at least a month away from coming back, I would stick to Howard and Pineda. :-)
