Pretty ironic since these guys were actually traded for each other in real life, but a guy in my league just completed a trade to get Hanley for his Mauer and Kendrick, specifically because he knew I was going after Hanley. Now he has offered me two trades, Lincecum OR Beckett for Hanley. Immediately, I am going to reject the deal for Timmy, but I am leaning towards doing the Beckett for HanRam deal. Even though Beckett has been terrific, and Hanley awful, this would be turning a 15th round pick into the #2 overall pick preseason. His team has an awesome offense and needs pitching, and has Andrus, Hanley, Weeks, and Phillips for 3 spots so it makes a lot of sense for him.
10 team H2H standard 5x5
6th place, standings are very close, I was in first two weeks ago before the injury bug hit
middle of every category, top in ERA/WHIP
BE Hosmer, Davis, Morneau (desperately trying to give away, might drop)
Be Nolasco, Peavy, Colon
Another thing to consider is that my league streams pitchers way more than they should, and I haven't been taking advantage of this as much as others because I have more quality than quantity. Also, I've been in talks with the Cano owner for a while and we both want to make a deal. He offered Cano for Espinosa, Ellsbury, and Kennedy. I declined, trying to get him without giving Ellsbury or a top pitcher, but I'm sure if I threw Beckett out there I'd get it done.
What would you guys do? Glad to help anyone else out. Leave a link
