I dont like giving up Hamilton this early in the season. I'd give it a C-, just because theres more upside for him, but if your talking about current performances, Probably a B.

thanks man. i should have also mentioned that its a keeper, auction league and Adam Jones is a steal for a keeper. I do disagree with you about Hamilton having more upside that Jones - I think Adam is just starting to fully realize his potential.

Having it be a keeper league changes it a lot.

I'd give it a B. Adam Jones is definitely going to be the better player this year and to come. Kubel is a platoon guy this year and his production is declining. Hopefully he will get more at bats. Corbin is going to be a good keeper and Middlebrooks is anyone's guess. I guess it's difficult. He gets the upside with Corbin and Midd, you get the upside with Jones. I'd still make the deal, especially for Jones.
