Postby whitheadsuxs » Tue May 10, 2011 11:26 am

Not sure this is a good deal for you. Hamilton is unlikely to come back at full strength. Most guys after a wrist injury lose some power and I would be worried about that with Hamilton. Add in the fact that he is always a question mark for health, I would look to add someone else.

Couple questions...... If you're hoping Rios gets it going why are you trading him? Not sure your OF can take another hit without someone to replace him right away. Hamilton is weeks out. If it's a shallow league why is Fowler on your roster?

in espn standard leagues fowler is ranked 26th as of a couple days ago only andre either had more doubles than him in the nl and hitting infront of tulo and cargo all year i figure a nice place for runs hopfully he gets some stolen bases his avg finally stays around .275 he does strikeout like a mad man but he makes big plays

rios doesnt hold a candle next to our hammy hamton he got me to my final last year and the wall injury with 3 weeks to go or whatever cost me the final but that KID can play

its a shallow league when it comes to pictching because theres only 5 starter spots and 2 releiver spots while some people have like 8 outfeilders on there team and bench 5 starters and a few bench

im just worried about september nothing else and what id be trading again rajai davis alex rios id get josh hamilton and gio gonzales and brett anderson are available for the loss of clayton kershaw (realize kershaw is better than them but...)

I'm not really sure what rankings you're looking at, preseason maybe, he's barely fringe top 50 OF'er.

according to espn PRK:25 dexter fowler he has 6 less hits and the same amount of at bats as ryan bruan he has as many doubles as matt holiday 3 less walks than bobby abreau more runs than adrian beltre LoL more doubles and runs than brandon phillips


i think u may need to look into owning dexter folwer if he isnt owned in ur league right now LoL

hes not as good a player as any of those 3 players but u gotta find those nobody guys that provide real guy numbers

he only has 13 rbis and strikes out like a mad man like i said but he has his place on rosters hes over acheaving at everything except what hes supposed to do with stealing bases

A career 260 hitter with no pop and doesn't knock in runs. Strikes out about as many games as he plays. This year looks like pretty much what he always averages........ 73/5/60/14/.260/.753 He's striking out even more then usual this year..... 116 in 135 games, 104 in 132 games last year, and even more this year, 41 in 33........
