My Jay Bruce and Tommy Hanson for Miguel Cabrera WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Jun 06, 2011 12:55 pm

Do this deal to snag an amazing keeper I can hold thru 2013 (Bruce can't be kept past 2012)? We play 3 utility at a time, so he'd slot right in. I get Wandy back in a week as well, so he could slot into my pitching staff.

I give: Jay Bruce and Tommy Hanson
I get: Miguel Cabrera

12 Team H2H. We Keep 6 Players Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means contract year

Stat Cats: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

Can Hanson be kept? If not I'd say do it...a bit of hard call as I really believe Bruce is ready for a MVP type season within the next couple of years.

Hanson CAN be kept. HOWEVER, we can only keep 6 players each season. So I'm not sure he makes the cut with my other guys in play.

I wouldn't do it. Bruce's value is too high right now, and Hanson is more than an add-in to square the deal. I understand you can keep Cabrera longer, but Bruce vs. Cabrera is more like a Wandy/Lilly/D-Hudson/Ian Kennedy than a Hanson. You are giving up a bit too much here for my liking. Is he really hot on Bruce? Could you do a Bruce/Wandy for M-Cab? Or Bruce/Zimmerman? He has been getting some good publicity lately. I would really try for Bruce/Zimmerman. I think in the end you can afford the pitching loss and the hitting upgrade and keeper upgrade looks good, I just think you can get more. If you did the deal I would say you did OK, but with the way Bruce is playing I would only do a deal that is a slam dunk if he's involved.
