Cueto and Latos

In a 14 Team Team Dynasty League would you trade Hellickson and Hamels for Cueto and Latos?

No. Hamels is the best by a lot imo, and Cueto has been very lucky lately.

Not even if you took Hellickson off the Hamels side.

Agreed. This isn't close. Hamels by a landslide.

Are you guys sure you are right about this one?

Latos: 2010-2012 avg. 12 Wins, 186 K, 3.30 ERA, 1.14 WHIP

Hamels: 2010-2012 avg. 14 Wins, 207 K, 2.97 ERA, 1.10 WHIP

So Hamels averages 2 more wins, negated by the fact that Latos now pitches for Cincy, who is going to help him win games. 21 K which is solid but nothing major. The ERA difference is significant, and the WHIP difference only a little bit significant.

For next season and beyond, Hamels is likely the better pitcher, but by how much isn't as clear as you guys say. I would contest that Latos would at worst maintain these differentials, with the possibility of improving on them

I'm not even going to post the numbers for Cueto and Hellickson because aside from ERA, Cueto demolishes Hellickson in every category.


For my money, I would rather have Cueto and Latos. Latos can hang with Hamels, and Cueto is miles ahead of Hellickson, and he actually had the best season of the 3 in 2012. Who's to say he won't do it again in 2013? Everyone questioned him in 2011 and he just backed it up with a Cy Young caliber 2012.

If you REALLY want to play it safe and give yourself no chance at improving, stick with Hamels. But if you want to take a small chance that would pay huge rewards, take Latos and Cueto.

I'd make that trade.

Hamels is a litltle better than Cueto but Latos is a lot better than Hellickson.
