I Give: Hamilton , I Get: Kinsler, Bruce

Postby Lockout » Tue May 15, 2012 9:10 pm

Hitting Categories: Runs, Hits, HR, RBI, AVG, SB
10 Team H2H
Keep 3 Players every year in the draft round they got drafted the previous year

My team:
C: Montero
1B: Cabrera, Miggy
2B: Zobrist
SS: Bonafacio
3B: Lawrie
OF: Hamilton
OF: Holliday
OF: Choo
Utl: Texeira
Bench: Trout
DL: Ellsbury

I give Hamilton (3rd round keeper next year)
I get Kinsler (1st round) and Bruce (4th round)

Thoughts? I'd move Zobrist to OF or trade him if I took the deal.

The keeper status of Hamilton in the 3rd is what makes me pause.

I don't like it because you get to keep Hamilton as a 3rd rounder and I don't really see Kinsler as a true 1st rounder. I would stay put

What if he were to substitute Hanley as a second rounder for Kinsler?

I would like that better for you. How is your pitching? Does he have a Cliff Lee, Felix, Sabathia, Kershaw type to throw in instead of another position player?

I'd no doubt keep Hamilton. Even though he's likely not going to keep the pace up of course he's still the best player in the trade and your team looks built to win it as is. Stick w Hamilton

I'd lean toward keeping Hamilton in that scenario, though I love Bruce.

Agree with others here. I'd stick with Hamilton in the 3rd round or try to get a Cano or Pedrioa. Hamiliton will regress and probably get hurt at some point in the season. He's not the most durable guy. Definitely SELL on Hamilton right now.

Yeah, I'm with the majority here. I think I'd keep Hamilton for the time being.
