O.Taveras vs B.Hamilton (WHIR)

Postby BUCCOFAN » Tue Jun 18, 2013 10:44 am

15 team deep roster Auction Keeper (Fantasy Points) CBS Sports Database League

SS - B.Hamilton $3 (1) (# in brackets is his contract year, can be kept for 3 years @ that value, assuming he doesn't see the show this year)
OF - O.Taveras $18 (1) (# in brackets is his contract year, can be kept for 3 years @ that value, assuming he doesn't see the show this year)

I am trying to decide who has more trade value, and who I should move for Help Now, the big thing Hamilton has going for him, is he can qualify @ "SS" (CBS sports) but I assume that is only for this year, as next year he will only be an "OF".

Another factor is who gets promoted this season sooner, and can help me Win or a shot at the title.

Arguably Taveras is the best "BAT" prospect in the minors, does he carry solid value for me, even @ $18?

Key factor here is, who to move for HELP NOW,

these are two different types of players. hamilton is speed, taveras is more of a productive hitter. taveras might take more time at the mlb level to develop his bat, hamiltons speed will play right away as long as he acn get on base. id keep hamilton, but he wont help you now. however, i dont see tavares being much help atm either

Hamilton. Neither will be up soon, but I love Hamilton's upsides and he should be a Sept call up so he could help a playoff run.
