Hamilton/Andrus for Pence/Youkilis?

Postby Trooper » Wed Mar 28, 2012 12:24 am

I'd be getting the Hamilton/Andrus side. It's a 10-team Yahoo league, H2H categories. What do you think of the trade? Alternative options as well as ideas for other roster improvements are welcomed :D

My team:
C: Napoli
1B: Youkilis (playing him at 1B although he qualifies at 3B)
2B: Hill
3B: Bautista
SS: Peralta
OF: Stanton
OF: Pence
OF: Morse
Util: D. Wright
Util: Maybin
B: Dunn
B: Lind
B: Doumit (have thought about trading napoli and going with doumit)
B: Crawford
P: Kershaw
P: Wainwright
RP: Street
RP: Motte
P: Zimmermann
P: Morrow
P: Liriano
P: K. Jansen
B: Lidge (hopefully I made the right call over H. Rodriguez)

His team:

C: Wieters
1b-Cabrera
2b-Phillips
3b-Freese
SS-Hanley
of-Hamilton
of-victorino
of-beltran
util-andrus
util-werth
b-ichiro
b-trumbo
b-g. sanchez
b-espinosa

p-halladay
p-lester
rp-axford
rp-balfour
p-darvish
p-dempster
p-mccarthy
p-j. santana
b-a. crow

he's also a sox fan but idk how much that will affect his player evaluations

Hamilton is clearly frustrated with his contract situation so much so he's picked up the bottle again, look for him to do what he's done the last several years of his life and go out and thrive when he's doubted. Keep Hamilton, I think Andrus has probably hit his ceiling or close to it, but Pence has as well and Youk (as much as it pangs me as a Sox fan, is on the downside of his career).

Love the Hamilton side. I think it has more upside and a better floor.

I would be fine dealing Napoli if you can get something good for him. I don't love Doumit but Napoli's value could be at an all-time high so if you can get an impact player for him, do it. You can find catchers on the WW.
