At this point I am thinking about ditching Hanley and keeping players that I got good value on, like Granderson in round 10, and Freddie Freeman in round 18. So should I try and trade Hanley to someone who wants to keep him as their first round pick? Any help is appreciated, WHIR

I don't think you'll get fair trade value given these constraints. Unless an owner is extremely confident Hanley will rebound to a top 3-5 type player they'll not want to risk their first round keeper pick on him. With just 3 keepers and so many other players being kept as lower round value picks there will undoubtedly be other (safer) first round type talent available in your draft. I don't think finding an owner with too many value picks is the route to take. He probably won't want to compound this by adding a "Hanley to keep or not to keep" dilemma to his plate. You best bet is to find a guy with no high ceiling keepers that has some faith in Hanley and would be willing to to assume a high risk/high reward philosophy as his best shot to compete next year. I'd even say that's a smart stance to take in your case unless you see yourself as one of the strongest potential keeper teams going in. I realize you don't have faith in Hanley. But if you feel you need a big break to win next year, it could be smart to keep him, hope for a good start to 2012, and trade him for championship. Sell him high based on his 2007-2010 numbers and that hot start (if it happens ... again I wouldn't try this if I saw myself as a stronger team). If you have a fairly early draft position I'd say cut him if you can't trade him. Worst case being you could draft him in round one.

I agree...You can get a top 15 player for him...recently in my league the guy with hanley traded him for Prince...i think it was worth it and would rather have the fat prince to hanley at this point.

help me?
