Trade Hamilton?

Postby BigBilly » Sat May 21, 2011 11:11 am

I am in a 16 5x5 roto 7 player Keeper, currently I sit in 5th which is last money spot. My team is struggling in Saves and SB at this point and with Hamilton coming off the DL I thought I would offer him up and try to sure up these problems. My team is mashing the ball and SP is strong

I have a offer out that was countered with this:

My Hamilton/Beckham/Sanchez(Stl Rp)

for

Kinsler/Cordero

How would I make out in this deal, I am tempted with this as I have a lot of OF and this would help my low categories.

C Montero
1B Moreland
2B Beckham
SS Bonafacio (Nishioka DL)
3B Beltre
CI Dobbs (Blake DL)
MI Kennedy
OF Crawford
OF Braun
OF Stanton
OF Melky (Hamilton DL)
U Joyce
U Nix

SP Hamels/Hanson/GIO/Zimmerman/Beachy RP Perez and a bunch of ?????

Basically you are trading Hamilton for Kinsler/Cordero. I think I would do it. You upgrade 2B and Hamilton may have lingering issues for the remainder of the season. Cordero will give you saves and Sanchez and Beckham aren't that thrilling.

I think i would do it Kinsler can be a 5 Category stud when he's on and Hamilton coming back will only help him. Also Cordero is more reliable than Sanchez

I would probably do it.

I still don't trust Hamilton and his health issues, and the other two have limited upside.

Although Kinsler has his own health issues, he seems more reliable than Hamilton, and while I was leery of Cordero at the beginning of the year, he has pitched well and the guy who was a threat to his role as closer (Aroldis) is having his own problems.

Also, thanks for help on mine.

Thanks for all the help guys..

I took the offer, Quiet Frankly I am sick of Beckham, he was one of my keepers this year and has been a total let down again!! And to me Hamilton and Kinsler are fairly equal plus add in Cordero and that was enough.

thanks again

I think it's an ok deal. beckhamm is playing really bad so you dont lose much. Cordero is a decent closer and should help you out. I would personally rather have Kinsler than Hamilton at this point, as Hamilton will need time to get back to form when he comes back. Sanchez isn't the closer so you lose nothing. So I would do the deal.

I have Hamilton and I am open to trades.... Actually have Beckham as well.... I am getting by..... Nonetheless, Kinsler is not enough to make me do it. Kinsler isnt exactly the model of health either.... I think Ham and Bechkam still have value.

You gave Hamilton away.
He was your 2nd best player.
Kinsler is overrated.
Cordero is shaky.
You should have gotton a top 20 player back.
