Thoughts on this massive deal? WHIR

Postby Guzman24 » Tue Jun 07, 2011 11:31 am

Trying to improve my OF and it's been frustrating watching Hosmer light it up on my bench so I want to get him in there. (I have Tex/Votto and Hosmer and only 1 UT spot)

What do you think of this deal in a keeper league?

I send: Tex, Pineda, 2nd rounder
I get: Hamilton, Felix, 20th rounder

12 teamer 8 Keepers 5x5 OBP instead of AVG and QS instead of wins

C Montero
1B Votto
2B Kinsler
3B Young
SS Reyes
OF Kemp,Abreu,Brown
UT Tex

SP Price,Verlander,Pineda,Bumgarner,E.Santana
RP Cordero,Walden
DL J.Johnson

BN Hosmer,Lawrie,Kubel,Crow,Capps

Little bit confused with the deal. If you keep 8 how are you giving up a 2nd round pick? If Hamilton could stay healthy it might make me feel better about the trade. But, truthfully, in a keeper, I don't see that much difference in Felix and Pineda, I believe he is the real deal, and the difference in picks is huge, although, like I said, I don't understand the 2nd round thing.

A second round pick will probably equate to a player ranked somewhere over 100. (12teams x 8keepers each = 96players kept)

By making this deal I will able to get Hosmer into my lineup at UT and Hamilton in at OF. I think this improves my offence.

Also, I'm currently in 1st place and if Pineda gets shut down this will hurt my chances. Having Felix,Price,Verlander,JJ (hopefully) for the stretch run will make my pitching unstoppable.

Any further comments? Much appreciated

Pineda will most likely be shut down near the end of the season, so that can hurt you in the playoffs. This trade will definitely be best if you're trying to win this year. But I would hope you could get a better pick then a 20th rounder, see if he can offer you something better then that.

I actually like the deal a lot for you. Felix and Hamilton are studs, and you do get a nice boost in your OF. If you're competing this year, I say go for it. Thanks for your help on my Lester/Gallardo question.

If that deal is on the table accept it so quick and laugh your way to the championship friend!

I get: Hamilton, Felix, 20th rounder
STEAL for you IMO.

Don't worry about the slight downgrade in picks, that is WORTH it to go for the championship and this makes your LINEUP way better.
