BJ Upton for Josh Hamilton

Postby johnlee1986 » Mon May 30, 2011 5:24 pm

Which side would you rather be on??
It is in a keeper league, both players can be kept for 4 years.

with Upton, looks like he's finally having some discipline at the plate, and looks like he can be a 20/40 threat from here on out... he did take a couple years to mature in the league...

and with Hamilton, obviously the injury risk is there but the HUGE potential he possesses..

I'm giving up Upton to try to get Hamilton and I'm trying to sell the other guy on Upton... (cause i've got too much speed on my team in HanRam, McCutch, Span, Belt and Eric Young Jr)

I've also got Napoli, Miranda, Uggla, Bautista, Melky Cabr, Delmon Young, Hafner, Vernon Wells, Derrek Lee

If you think i should couple Upton with someone who do you think will be a good fit?? Remember its a Keeper league. Thanks in advance!

Hamilton has more talent- but is way more injury prone. Depends on which you value more. I probably lean towards Hamilton over the next four years, but if you went out six years, it moves to Upton.

Hamilton fairly easily in my mind. The injury risk is nothing compared to the potential contributions he can give a team.

Don't see how this is even a debate. Hamilton by a landslide. Hitting machine, ton of power, plays in a launchpad of a hitters park, plays for an overall stellar offensive team. He's the MVP and one of the most talented players in all of baseball.

The ONLY thing Upton has on Hamilton is speed. The ONLY thing.

You look at the 5 main categories of baseball - HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP

Hamilton owns 4 of those 5 by a wide margin.
C - Pierzynski
1b - Dunn
2b - Cano
3b - Beltre
SS - Rotating
OF - Bruce, De Aza, Cespedes
Util - Encarnacion
BN - Asdrubal, Adam Jones, Freddie Freeman

SP - Price, Gallardo, Rotating SP
RP - Myers, Perez, Nathan, Perkins, Wilhelmsen
