12 team, H2H redraft, 5X5 with QS, OBP and no AVG or W.

C- Castro
1B- Goldschmidt
2B- Utley
3B- Trumbo
SS- Andrus
OF- Hamilton, Kemp, NCruz

Bench- LCain, Daniel Murphy
DL- Morse

Have been offered Cole Hamels for my Matt Carpenter. My pitching really needs help. Thoughts?

Yah, you've got to do this. Haren in particular should be dropped for the best available FA, too. He's un-ownable.

Hamels is Matt Cain-like in the degree of his being a wasting of a roster spot this year. 3-11 with a 4.3 era and 1.27 WHIP. This is not the late 90's\early 2000's so I think you are paying too much for Hamels at this point. You can counter with Daniel Murphy instead but he probably will reject it.

While that is true, it is a QS league and not Wins. He has 12 QS and 107 K's. He would be one of the best pitchers on my staff, and my offense is much more equipped to handle a loss than my pitching. That doesn't change your mind at all?

I don't see velo loss or real issues with Hamels. I think he'll be fine myself.

I'd trade for him myself.

I like Hamels and think he is rebounding. Did you see his last performance?
