Keeper Trade - Pujols, Kinsler -My Braun, Hamilton

Postby BigBilly » Sat May 14, 2011 9:50 am

I have been offered this deal, I have an Braun, Hamilton, Crawford, Melky, Stanton, Joyce in the OF. I have Moreland at 1B and
Beckham at 2b

I am in the middle of the pack in a 16 team 5x5 Roto Keep 7. I would love to beef up my Infield keepers but is the trade a fair one?

Any help would be appreciated

3B Beltre
MI S. Rodriguez
CI Dobbs/Blake(DL)

I'm not sure that I would do that, but im sure many will disagree.

Veery tempting though, but Hamilton and Braun win out for me.

Maybe buy low for someone like Uggla?

A little help here would be nice:

id pass as well i no its pujols but beckham lets say finally breaks out and kinsler gets injured again and hamilton comes back to hush up all the trash talkers and has a fire july /august and brauns on pace to have his career year

that being said having the ability to keep pujols would be awsome but braun is just as safe as pujols isnt he i mean duh pujols has more value but brauns adp 8.6 hamilton 18.6 like ur giving up two top 20 guys kinslers avg adp is like 40 but he is ranked 3 in standard leagues


idk this is tough but id pass id rather take braun and hamilton to the worst team in the league and pick all the talent i want off it for

if he had pujols pence or pujols ethier i think that could work

It seems like a bit too much. Pujols is the best player in the deal, but I don't think Braun is very far off at all. Kinsler and Hamilton both have their respective injury risks, but comparing the two side by side, Hammy is the more valuable player hands down, IMO.
