First, I feel that we've seen his best output so far and, though he'll finish the season with fine numbers, I don't think he'll hit at a higher rate than he's already reached. I imagine it only goes down, however slightly, from here. Second, there's always that nagging health issue. He's hung on for 2.5 months now, but it's a long season. Do you want to take that risk?
If you really need the power, then I would make the trade and hope for the best with Hamilton. However, I might hold off on this given some of the risk.
I agree with a lot of this. Hamilton is a health risk and there are just too many question marks with him. McCutchen is hot as can be right now and will likely cool off but I wouldn't be surprised if they both end up with similar value the rest of the way.
I also prefer Greinke to Lee so I don't see this as a win for you.
