C. Perez for Hamels trade

Postby sledge4 » Thu Apr 04, 2013 8:39 pm

10 team, 5 x 5 standard roto

I received the following offer:

Get > SP Hamels & OF Pierre
Send > RP Chris Perez

Pierre is just a dump from the other GM I believe. I'm not interested in him. Essentially deal is Perez for Hamels.

It would basically mean I'm punting the Saves category as it would only leave me with Jim Johnson. I have Kenley Jansen, but who knows when/if he will close.

I think adding Hamels would lock up K's for me. I already have Peavy, Sale, Latos, Harvey & Estrada.

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks in advance for your opinions.

Not really sure why you're even thinking about this. This is one of the most automatic accept-and-runs that I've ever seen. Just hope it doesn't get vetoed.

I know on paper it looks great... but my feelings for fantasy is to never just give up on a category.

I guess I'm trying to decide if I would gain more by adding Hamels or lose more with Perez.

You gain more adding Hamels and it's not close. Perez isn't even a great closer and could easily lose his job at some point. If you're vigilante on the waiver wire and grab prospective closers you'll be fine. You have to make this trade now. If you really wanted you could probably turn around and flip Hamels for Kimbrel or Chapman.

You can always find cheap saves. If the trade goes through just pay attention to the closers thread: viewtopic.php?t=454437

Ok, I pulled the trigger. Let's see if it gets vetoed.
