Hamilton/McGehee/Bumgarner for Kinsler/Soriano/Carmona?

Postby juliown1028 » Wed May 11, 2011 3:26 am

I'd be getting the Hamilton side. I'd put McGehee at 3B and move Young to 2nd. What do you guys think?

I like it ... you strengthen your OF, get an upside guy in MadBum, and McGehee is likely to heat up. Kinsler tends to get hurt and Soriano is too hot and cold for my taste. I'd take it.

Looks good to me. McGehee should pick it up hitting behind Braun/Price, Bumgarner is average but has the potential to be more, and Hamilton is obviously the jewel of this deal. It appears like he'll be returning around the end of the month, ahead of his original prognosis.

I'd jump all over this. It's a GREAT trade for you.

You're getting the best player in the deal (Hamilton). You're also getting his injury risk, but you're shedding the same from Kinsler, who's harder to replace when (not if, when) he goes down.

Soriano is a textbook Sell High right now, and Bumgarner is just as much a textbook Buy Low. I'm not a believer in Carmona, I think that entire Cleveland team is playing over its head right now.
