Sell Hanley to this nutjob? WHIR guaranteed

Postby jasonpm311 » Tue May 31, 2011 1:34 pm

So, a guy in my 12-team H2H mixed keeper league has been hounding me all year, at least once a week, to trade him Hanley. I'm in 2nd place and have a serious shot at the title this year, and he's in next to last and doesn't. He's a die hard Marlins fan who I think finally sees his chance to pry Hanley away from me. Should I just go ahead and do this trade?

I give:

Hanley
Juan Miranda
Ichiro
Darwn Barney
Charlie Morton

I get:

Adrian Gonzalez
Yunel Escobar
Drew Stubbs
Felix Hernandez
Mat Latos

I'm crazy not to do this, right? Hanley is a solid keeper, no doubt, but this latest injury combined with his declining stats over the last two years makes me think it's time to abandon ship and get a pretty insanely solid haul in return. Our stats are R, HR, RBI, OBP, SLG, SB; K, QS, SV, ERA, WHIP, K/BB With these categories, Felix is obviously a beast, and I like the upgrade I get from Ichiro to Stubbs in terms of slugging pct.

Any thoughts? Please post your links so I can help in return. Thanks.

Well it is a no brainer to take it, but it raises my ethics flag....That seems like a pretty terrible trade for the other guy to make and I would guess the other owners in the league are not going to be too happy about that trade.

A little help please? viewtopic.php?t=432118

I don't know about an ethics flag....... The other guy offered this to him. Of course the other owners are going to be mad because they didn't get in on it....... It's all jealousy. There isn't anything that is even close to being a veto here. It may be one sided as you look at it, but it's a keeper league too, so you never know what trades will mean a year or two from now.

Definitely take it. A-Gon alone is worth most of what you're giving up.

Post it on tradebashers and see how the vote comes out. You input the players and league details and everybody votes.
