Hamilton/Kipnis for Jones/Castro/Kinsler keeper trade WHIR

Postby baseballbro34 » Fri Jul 13, 2012 3:39 pm

I'm in a 12 man keeper league. We keep 12 at the end of the season. I'd like to deal Hamilton because he is very injury prone and I want to make a younger OF. My roster is as follows:
C- Mauer
1B- Dunn
2B- Kipnis
3b- Freese
SS- rollins
OF- rios
of- cabrera
of- hamilton
util- garrett jones
util- edwin encarnacion
bn- ruggiano, ichiro, rosario, alcides escobar

SP- Price, Cain, Burnett, Harrison, Cueto, Wainwright, Wood
RP- Kimbrel, valverde, Janssen, cishek.
My pitching is fine, but I'd like to bring in some younger guys. what do ya'll think?

I wouldn't worry about the age factor as much, and the injury risk sucks, but you're also dealing one of the best hitters on the planet right now. The value of the deal is OK, but I am not completely moved to make the deal. What number of guys do you keep? What are your league specs, roster sizes, etc.?

Not sure I like it. Kipnis and Kinsler are pretty even and Jones is nice but Hamilton is clearly better. Depending on how many keepers, Castro might be a borderline keeper right now. I think you could do better with Hamilton than this.
