I like that deal better so I'd take it. I don't like Hammel, I think we've seen his best already...and that's coming from a hudge O's fan. Longor and Tulo will both produce similar numbers, and even though Longo has some injury problems Tulo is still the injury star of those 2. So then it comes down to Sano and Goldy. I've been reading alot of good things, and alot of "hype," about Sano...but the guy is still only 18 years old so it's very difficult to project his long term value at this point. Some of the experts have been saying he's the next Cabrera, but I don't know about all that...that's like saying player X (insert name) is the next Jordan, lol. How these guys make these kind of projections I'll never know...bottom line is nobody has any idea what this kid will be, or if he'll be anything at all. I like proven commodities not he could be's...Goldy is still pretty young and has already produced at the major league level, so in my mind that makes this deal worth taking. Rolling the dice with Sano and turning him loose isn't that big of a gamble in my mind. I love keeper leagues and the opportunity to grab the next big time player when he's still young, but you know as well as I do that there is a ton of hit and miss with that kind of fantasy baseball. Take the sure thing and bring hom Tulo and Goldy...and you won't have to wait 5 years to see if you have useable players.
