I agree with the last 2 posts...I would definitely go Lawrie. He may be more risky than Hamilton, but given your 5 keepers already, I easily take the gamble. Also, I am not even sure how much riskier it is, as Hamilton has had way too many injury issues to make this a 'no-brainer'. As good as Hamiton is, he doesn't produce when he is on the DL.

Thanks for the advice on mine.

Lawrie for me. Hamilton is just to injury prone for me.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

Thanks for the replies. It looks pretty even Hamilton vs Lawrie. Any more comments? I will reply to any link.

Hamilton. Dont base it off of what "could" be. Go for what is now, and Hamilton isn't planning on hanging it up anytime soon.

Like others have said, given the quality of your other 5 keepers I'd take the slight risk on Lawrie with the huge potential for gains for years to follow.

Hamilton...go with the sure thing...and deal for keepers in the future with that ridiculous lineup.

This sums it up for me-

It amazes me that people are willing to drop an established stud and former MVP in Hamilton for a kid who has exactly 150 MLB ABs. And of those 150 ABs, only the 1st 75 were amazing.

Hamilton is going to be 31 this year. He isn't old and still hits in the heart of arguably the most stacked lineup in baseball. Even with only 120 games, he still posted ridiculous numbers last season.

I'm a big Brett Lawrie fan...and I'm going to tell you to keep Josh Hamilton. With only 6 keepers, why take the risk? If he gets hurt, he gets hurt...you have 5 studs already. 150AB is not a big enough sample size to give up a guy who is only not a 1st rounder because he's had some bad luck with injuries....
