Konerko for Hamels? WHIR

Postby RUnited » Sat May 28, 2011 3:04 am

Please help. I'm in a shallow points league no keeper.

I'm proposing a trade, my Konerko for his Cole Hamels. The guy is being tough and wants one of my pitchers as well. He's willing to throw Prado into the mix.

My thinking is I don't mind a two for one deal. Eric Hosmer is available on WW and he can sit on my bench nicely. As is Konerko is on my bench. Here's my team:

C Montero
1 MCab
2 Pedroia
3 Beltre
SS Rollins
OF Bruce
OF Crawford
OF Ellsbury
Util Bautista
BN Konerko
BN Choo
DL Zimmerman

SP Weaver, Ubaldo, Dan Hudson, Garcia, Nolasco, Chacin, CJ Wilson
RP Marmol, Street, Madson, Feliz

Who should I offer with Konerko to land me Hamels? Is it worth the trade considering Konerko is on bench and I will have Zimmerman coming back?

If I offer a good pitcher I'll get Prado back, but I don't really need him I think.

I'd deal Konerko and D Hudson for Prado and Hamels - That is a very good trade for you because A, Hamels is better than Hudson by far, and B, Prado is a versatile player.

Give him CJ, and pick up Hosmer.

Thanks everyone. The seller is still playing tough.

Meanwhile I've been offered Tommy Hanson for Jaime Garcia. Worth a consideration?

I'm in a point league. W's is 10pts, K +1 so a pitcher with high K's/9 on a good team is a boost.

Garcia's been great but I like Hanson over Garcia actually.
