Beckett for Hanley? Maybe Cano? *WHIR*

Postby moochieh » Mon Jun 20, 2011 2:00 pm

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

C Olivo
1B Tex
2B Espinosa
3B Longoria
SS Hardy
OF Ellsbury
OF Cruz
OF Choo
UTIL Boesch
BE Hosmer, Davis, Morneau (desperately trying to give away, might drop)
DL Jeter

SP Lincecum
SP Hamels
SP Beckett
RP Street
RP Santos
RP Papelbon
P Gallardo
P Zimmerman
P Kennedy
P Collmenter
Be Nolasco, Peavy, Colon
DL Broxton

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

I think I would pull the trigger on the Beckett deal. You are still strong at starting pitching and Hanley would be a huge upgrade over Hardy at SS.

Even though Beckett has been awesome this year, he has always been an injury concern.

On the surface it looks good, Beckett for Hanley. I can't tell you why, but I have a bad feeling about Hanley this year. I don't think he'll get it going. I hope I am wrong though.

I would try to play up Hanley issues and flip Gallardo... If not, Beckett makes sense.

Thanks for your post.

Agree with all above. Would prefer Cano. Would prefer to give Gallardo.

But push comes to shove, I still think Beckett for Hanley is a good deal for you and would make that deal if it's the best offer you can get.
