I'd do it.

But with Kershaw, Hanson and Hudson, I wouldn't say that you are conceding wins.

Should I give Hamels to get Haren? Help here?

Not a chance. Most players struggle to find their power after a wrist injury. I don't see Hamilton coming back at his normal self. Plus he is a health risk for the rest of the season just because of who he is. I would let someone else deal with it and keep Felix. You can get a better more sure OF than Hamilton for Felix if that is what you are looking for.

I wouldn't do it. Rios is turning it around (slowly) and you can't give up the no. 2 arm in baseball for an oft injured guy who went around the same pick as Felix anyways, then add in a top 75 pick. What's his roster look like? Maybe you could do Felix/Rios for Hamilton/SP? Someone like Cain or Gio or Bills or something along those lines. Then I would like it more and he may too if he likes felix so much.

No way would I do that, not even if it was a 1-1 without rios involved. As mentioned before hamilton is not a safe bet, as soon as I heard about his injury, a moved him for haren, and haven't looked back.

No hate. Just no reason to bet on an if. Felix is not an if. Also, OF is quite deep this year.

It could happen BUT an injury to a wrist is alway a concern. It takes players a fair amount of time to regain the power they had before a wrist injury. So expecting him to put up a great half season is expecting a lot. Felix is the safe bet here. If you make this deal, Hamilton has to have a great second half to make the deal break even if not then Felix side wins. High risk high reward players should be picked up at a discount and this isn't a discount for Hamilton.
