Trade away Josh Hamilton for Ian Kinsler

Postby zman3599 » Sat Apr 27, 2013 4:18 pm

Hey guys, would greatly appreciate the help on this trade

I am thinking about offering Josh Hamilton for Ian Kinsler
I am starting to believe Hamilton is going to not produce this year, and Kinsler clearly is.


I am in a 8 team H2H points league:

scoring :
Batting:
Total Bases (TB) 1 Walks (BB ) 1
Runs Scored (R ) 1 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1
Stolen Bases (SB) 1 Strikeouts (K) -1

Pitching:
Innings Pitched (IP) 3 Earned Runs (ER) -2
Wins (W) 5 Losses (L) -5
Saves (SV) 5 Strikeouts (K) 1
Hits Allowed (H) -1 Walks Issued (BB) -1


Here is my current line-up:

Batters:
C Matt Wieters, Bal C
1B Albert Pujols, LAA
2B Jason Kipnis, Cle 2B
3B Josh Donaldson, Oak 3B
SS Starlin Castro, ChC SS
2B/SS Elvis Andrus, Tex SS
1B/3B Freddie Freeman, Atl 1B
OF Matt Kemp, LAD OF
OF Josh Hamilton, LAA OF
OF Matt Holliday, StL OF
OF Mark Trumbo,LAA OF
OF Carlos Gomez, Mil OF
UTIL Ike Davis, NYM 1B

Bench: Shane Victorino DTD (supposedly nothing serious)
Bench Ryan Zimmerman, Wsh 3B* (15 day DL) --
DL slot: Curtis Granderson*, OF (INJURED TILL MID MAY-ISH)

Pitching:
P Justin Verlander, Det SP
P Mat Latos, Cin SP
P Jordan Zimmermann, Wsh SP
P Max Scherzer, Det SP
P Tim Lincecum, SF SP

P Jim Johnson, Bal RP
P Greg Holland, KC RP
P Addison Reed, CWS RP

Bench: Shelby Miller, StL SP
Bench: Ross Detwiler, Wsh SP


I figure having a top tier 2nd baseman in a not very deep position would be an upgrade to a struggling OF when I already have Kemp, Hamilton, and soon to be Granderson.

What do you guys think??


Thanks for the help!

Since you have Granderson coming back soon I would do this. Kinsler is a definite upgrade to Kipnis especially since he is struggling.

please help

Definitely take that. You can get a speed type OF (Gardner for your OF replacement) but you have in Granderson so....

I am not a believer in Hamilton in Los Angeles, so I would take this deal.

I would love to trade my Hamilton for Kinsler. There aren't very many Hamilton believers out there, so good luck trying to get pre-season value for him ;)
