Hamilton for Gio Gonzalez and James Shields

Postby bodsquad » Fri Mar 16, 2012 9:57 am

I am in a keeper/contract league and I was offered Hamiloton for Gonzalez and Shields. I thought it was a no brainer, but now I am second guessing.
My team
Pujols
Votto
Wright
Zimmerman
Bonificiolo
Kelley Johnson
C. Young
Bj Upton
Gardner
Morse
Felix
Halladay
Gio Gonzalez
Hudson
W. Rodriguez
Shields
Marcum
Bell
Putz

I have enought SP to give up one, but not two guys. We are still in the draft and Sp is starting to get weak. McCarthy and Norris were just taken, Scott Baker, Dempster are available. I could use Hamilton's bat, but which OF would then I sit and Hamilton is always an injury waiting to happen.

I would do the deal as well, unless the contracts changes things.

Agree. If you're worried about pitching you could always attempt to swing some of your new found OF depth for another starter. SP is usually plentiful during the season however.
