Hanley Dynasty Trade....WHIR!!!

Postby bigoz89 » Wed May 25, 2011 2:29 pm

What do you think about this trade?

I give Hanley and Markakis

I get Cliff Lee and Colby Rasmus

This is a dynasty league, no contracts or years. I would be sliding Starlin Castro into my SS position to cover for Hanley.

I guess it all depends on how bad u need the pitching. Me personally... I would wait on hanley to start hitting it. But to be honest im a first year fantasy player, so im learning as I go. But I think the marlins are legit and young. So if its a dynasty, I rather have hanley than lee and/or rasmus.

Sounds like a good trade if Castro can take over.

I think the idea of looking to deal a SS if you also have Castro is right -- there's definitely a good deal out there for a player of Hanley's caliber. But I don't think this is that deal. Lee is an excellent pitcher, but just isn't even value for a guy who can be a first-round talent when he's hitting. Add in the dynasty component and Hanley's relative youth compared to Lee swings the pendulum further.

To give you an idea of Hanley's value, I gave up Ryan Braun in a trade earlier this year to get Hanley (not straight up, there were other players involved, but still)...

I'd decline and see what else is out there.

I wouldnt do it either. Keep in mind HanRam's age (he's still young) and how awesome he's been for quite a while now. If he wasnt having a big month-and-a-half long slump to start 2011, I doubt you'd consider this trade.

If you're going to trade HanRam, I think you have to be getting a premium player back, not just a very good veteran pitcher and a good young OF.

I would do that, mostly because you have Castro to slot in at SS. If you didn't have a good replacement like that, no. I think calling Lee a 'good veteran' is selling him short. He's a Top 5 fantasy starter, one of the few legit studs.

I'd keep Hanley here. He will heat up and you can get more for him.

please help

Lord no. Ramirez is a force in dynasty leagues, and you should be getting back a LOT more.
