My initial gut reaction was to go with Hamilton and Dickey.

Long term Upton might be the better play, but for now Hamilton is just far better in the scoring categories you use than Upton.

Upton SLG last three years - .430, .529, .442
Hamilton SLG last three years - .633, .536, .577

With only 6 keepers it's foolish to look too far down the road. Try to win this season. Keep Hamilton and Dickey. That said, I would certainly attempt to move Dickey in some sort of an Upton deal if you could somehow do it.

The safe route is Hamilton and Dickey. I am not a believer in Dickey and would probably try and sell him to someone who is. A large part of me wants to go with the Upton side. I think it has the most upside and less injury risk. Not sure if I really believe Kimbrel can keep doing what has been doing the past few years but I believe in him a lot more than i do Dickey.

I actually have RA and Hamilton in a keeper league and I would not trade them for Justin and Kimbrel. But I also do not put nearly the stock that many do in closers. I think you need to wait and see what is really going to happen with Upton, the jury is still out. Hamilton on the other hand, should have a rather strong year in LAA.

I like the Hamilton/dickey side but would try and move dickey. He had a great year last year, no doubt. but im not sold on him having another great season. his trade value is as high as its gonna be. try to move him.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=453481
