WHIR: My Hamilton/Jansen for his Fielder/Pence? WHIR!!!

Postby coolarmadillo » Wed Jun 06, 2012 7:37 am

11-team roto, 40-man roster, keeper league.

First place, looking to add a bat (literally...the extra bat could simply be added to our lineup, replacing a pitcher...sort of a P/Utility flex position) and win this year. 9th place is pretty well out of it and looking for keepers. Thinking about offering him Hamilton (can't be kept) and Kenley Jansen (can be kept 3 more years for price of 20th round pick) for Fielder (can't be kept) and Pence (can be kept 1 more year for the price of a 9th round pick).

Two questions:

1. Is this enough to get Fielder and Pence? Hamilton is ranked #1 on the CBS site (which hosts our league), Jansen #75, Fielder #41 and Pence #26. So, our #1 and 75 for his #41 and 26. Even without the keeper angle, I think it's defensible. With two more years of Jansen than Pence for the price of a pick 11 rounds later, I think it's a very solid offer. Very interested what others think.

2. Is there any reason you WOULDN'T do this if you were me? I have a ton of closers and other keeper options. The only downsides I can see are maybe a slight hit in average and the possibility that Hamilton continues at this pace (in which case, I still think Fielder and Pence should combine to be more valuable, if only for runs and RBI).

Please leave a link and I'll help in return.

I think that you could probably get that for Hamilton if the guy wants to trade.

My only worry is Pence's average. He is really pressing at the plate without Howard in the lineup.

I think it's enough especially if the other guy wants Hamilton. The only problem is that Hamilton can't be kept so I am not sure if the prospect of keeping Jansen will sway the other owner to do this. I do think it is a great deal for you though if you can pull it off.

please help

I think that this will be enough (I'm currently trying to trade Hamilton myself) and think that there is no reason for you to do it. Pence will be a nice keeper for next year as well.

Mine?
