Trade Lawrie for Hamilton? WHIR

Postby rich101682 » Fri May 03, 2013 9:40 am

I was proposed Josh Hamilton for Brett Lawrie in my 20 team keeper league (OBP instead of AVG). I've got Todd Frazier who can slide in to 3B is Lawrie goes.

I'm really having a hard time figuring out Hamilton. A year ago, this would have been a no-brainer. But Hamilton's been terrible for all season, and a lot of last season too. I know he's not in as good a park to hit as Texas, but the lineup around him is there. I haven't seen any Angels games this season, so if anyone wants to give their thoughts on Hamilton, I would appreciate it.

I think I might take the chance here, nice buy low, (I have never been a Hamilton fan) BUT.....with Frazier around (who performs better then Lawrie to date)

I think this works, and if you are in desperate need of "OF" help (20 team league) I would do it.

PLEASE HELP ME:

Thanks for the reply, The thing that gives me pause about the deal is that OF is actually my strongest position (at full health at least).

Right now I have:

Frazier
Stanton
Granderson
Rios
Stubbs
Joyce
