Hamilton,Trumbo + Scott for Granderson + Verlander.Thoughts?

Postby tdpaul » Mon May 14, 2012 11:00 am

*UPDATE*
So I am being offered Josh Hamilton, Mark Trumbo and Luke Scott (just added) for Curtis Granderson and Justin Verlander.

Of course Hamilton is killing it right now, but this guy has been trying to unload Trumbo to everyone it seems so that's making me a little hesitant.

Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!

I don't think I would. Hamilton has been killing it but that doesn't mean he will continue this torrid pace. I would stay put unless he is willing to add another player or upgrade Trumbo.

Yeah, he's certainly not going to stay on pace to hit 90 home runs. ha.

I'm mostly worried about him getting hurt + Trumbos playing time while Granderson and Verlander are super reliable.

The other guy also has: Alex Avila, Paul Konerko, Kelly Johnson, Jose Bautista, Luke Scott, David Ortiz
