I love Hamilton as much as anybody, but i don't understand trading the 2nd best keeper SP for him.
I agree. For McCutch I may pull the trigger, but in a keeper, I am not rushing to trade Felix a top 2-3 keeper pitcher for Hamilton who will be 31 in May and hasn't played more than 133 games in the last 3 years.

The team that had Morse was loaded and he didn't make the cut for that team's 8 keepers, so he was just happy getting some value for him (although I'm sure another team could/should have offered higher than a 13.) Figured going from A. Jones to Morse was a solid enough upgrade that I could sacrifice the pick and let Jones go back into the draft pool.
