Trade thoughts??

Postby kevinkallberg » Thu Feb 21, 2013 6:49 pm

12 team H2H league

Trade 1 (not my trade)
Billy Hamilton, 3rd and 4th round picks
for
Adam Jones


Trade 2 (was proposed to me by the team getting Adam Jones in trade 1)
I trade Pablo Sandoval
for
2nd round pick


Is trade 1 veto worthy?
I personally think it's insane to trade a top 15 outfielder (keeper ranks) for an unkowning prospect that is only useful for SB's.

Maybe I'm just undervaluing Billy Hamilton then?

Is Hamilton supposed to be a top outfielder? I know he has wheels and will steal a lot of bases, but is he supposed to develop some power to?

forgot to mention, each of the 12 teams in the league keeps 8 players.

high average, lot of runs in that offense, he is a middle infielder but to prevent early wear and tear they will probably start him in the OF. And the 2 picks in the early rounds after keepers is nothing to sneeze at either

Vetoing ranges from league to league, so I can't tell you if it will get vetoed in your league. Its a pretty lopsided trade. Theres a good chance that Hamilton will spend very little time in the majors this year. Adam Jones is an OF stud.

Since you keep 8 players the 3rd and 4th round draft picks are essentially 11th and 12th round players in a 12 team league, which doesn't carry a tremendous amount of value.

If you are getting Adam Jones, you are getting a steal (No Billy Hamilton Pun intended)

Trade 1 is a horribly lop sided trade. I don't know about Veto worry, but in my league it would definitely piss off some owners.

Trade 2 also not great. Keep the Panda or shop for something better then that pick.
