my Hamels for his Longo, WHIR

Postby saemick » Thu Jul 21, 2011 10:18 pm

Was just offered the above trade. Below is my roster:

14-team 5x5 H2H Yahoo! NON-KEEPER league
c: Soto
1b: Miguel Cabrera
2b: Ellis
ss: Andrus
3b: Zimmerman
OF: Justin Upton, Chris Young, Snider
Utl: Ibanez, Bonifacio
BN: Hosmer, Morse, Tabata (DL)
SP: Hamels, Billinglsley, Ian Kennedy, Cueto, Vazquez, Peavy, Beachy, Dickey
RP: Valverde, Perez, Izzy
Stat categories: Hitters: R, HR, RBI, SB, BA Pitchers: W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

In most cases, this would be a no brainer, but since I already have Zimmerman and am pretty weak at SP after Hamels, I'm a little hesitant to pull the trigger on this.

any thoughts?

I'd take the deal and see if you can deal Zimmerman for a pitcher. It's been a good year for pitchers on the waiver wire too, so I'm sure a good enough replacement can be found there. Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=435367

I don't think you can do this trade. Longoria has been struggling all year and your SP would take a massive hit by losing Hamels. Only way you could do this is if you could then turn Zimmerman into a SP but then what would be the point of doing this trade.

I totally agree with this statement.

Longoria is a perfect buy-low. He's also brought his points per game average up to a 3.1. To put things in perspective, Sabathia couldn't get him out last night, but did well with the other 8 people in the lineup.

Do the deal for Longoria and trade Zimm and potentially another one of your arms (say Vazquez, Peavy, or Dickey) for a top-flight pitcher. :-)

Totally off-topic, but I'm surprised that you have Morse on your bench.

If you think you can work another deal using zimmerman for pitching, I think you can do this trade. Hamels has really been solid this year though so if you have any doubts about making another trade, I would not do it.

help with mine?

No way. Hold tight....Longo is a slight upgrade over Zimm, but your pitching is too shallow.

I would def hold onto Hamels. Longo is a very good 3b but not that much better than zimmerman. Hamels has the stuff to go out and throw a CG SH with 12 ks every game. He has pitched very well this year and is having a better year and Longo.

No deal

Keep Hamels here. Longo is only slightly better than ZImm and you need Hamels more.

please help

Hold off!

What 2b are available?
I'd dump Tabata for another 2b since its not a keeper.

in an ideal world, I'd be able to offload Zimm for another SP...but there is no guarantee that I'll be able to do this...which is why i'm so hesitant to pull the trigger.

So, it really comes down to:

Is the addition of Longo good enough to basically have a mediocre pitching staff??
