MCab and Hamilton deal...WHIR

Postby High cheese » Fri Jun 03, 2011 11:15 am

8-team standard Yahoo 5x5 league...salivated when I got this deal and couldn't say no but now I might be regretting it a bit. Deal goes like this:

Get - MCab, Hamilton, Paplebon and Napoli (dropped for Arencebia)
Give - Morneau, Weeks, Gordon, Rasmus, Ortiz and Joyce

Getting the 2 best players of the deals is sweet but then why do I feel I've lost this deal? Just seems like a lot of offense to give up...ease my pain peeps!

My roster:

C - Santana
1B - Gonzalez
2B - Hill, Roberts
SS - Reyes
3B - Rolen, Zimmerman
OF - Hamilton, Beltran, McCutchen
UTIL - Teixera, MCab, Berkman
Bench - Furcal, Morse, Vlad, Heyward
Pitchers - Halladay, Sabathia, Beckett, Peavy, Shields, Scherzer, Paplebon, Marmol, Valverde, League, Padilla

2B-Uggla
3B-Zimmerman
SS-Reyes
OF-Hamilton/Beltran/McCutchen
Util-Heyward/MCab/Berkman
Bench-Dom Brown/Moustakas/Aybar

In an 8 team league there is OK talent to be had everywhere. You secured two studs in the trade and it's usually he who has the most top 25 studs that wins a shallow league such as yours. Don't fret it, you won this trade. Just try to find someone decent to play 2B for you now.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

Like everybody else no one believes Berkman has great value. I wish I could have dealt Hill instead but he said Weeks had to be part of the deal.

DO it. 8 team leagues always have plenty of good waiver fodder, you can find someone easily as good as guys you're losing, you get studs MCab and Hamilton, and Paps stud closer (Saves will come).

See mine? thx. viewtopic.php?t=432422

Mcab, Tex, and AGon? Who are you going to sit? Trade Tex if a OK replacement at 2B isn't available on the WW.
