Hamels & Dominguez FOR Cain & Mondesi (WHIR)

Postby BUCCOFAN » Fri Feb 22, 2019 12:08 am

Looking to move a pitching for some bats, deep 15 team Fantasy Points Auction Keeper League, players have 3 year contracts then return to the auction, we can protect 12 guys. League is heavy on the pitching stats, (10 points a win, as a big factor) Hamels looked to have found the fountain of youth at the end of last season, I have him for only $10, on a contending Cubs squad, so that's some value. But with me already keeping the following Scherzer $57 deGrom $41 and Cole $24 I am set with my ACES, in such a deep league. Running out Scherzer/deGrom/Cole on a weekly bases is such a HUGE add in a deep 15 teamer, so I think I have to keep those 3, I could save money if I let Goldie go back into the Auction.

I GET:
POSITION - PLAYER - SALARY - CONTRACT YEAR
OF - L.Cain $10 (3) (last year at that salary)
SS - A.Mondesi $1 (2) (2 years left at that salary) (busted out in September, was it for real? SB's are huge in a fantasy points league)

HE GETS:
P - C.Hamels $10 (2) (2 years left at that salary)
P - S.Dominguez $1 (2) (2 years left at that salary) (sure Robertson is aboard, but who knows how the Phillies will use there bullpen, plus we do give 5 points for holds)

Instead of Mondesi above, my other options from his squad are
SS - Rosario $1 (2)
SS - Adames $1 (2)
I like Mondesi more as he is supposed to hit at the top of the order for the Royals, and also has the extra speed factor.

My 12 player keeper roster template after trade: Empty slots to be filled in the Auction.
STARTING ROSTER:

I would not give a bag of rocks for Hamels and certainly not pay $10 for him at this point. I can't imagine anyone is trading you Mondesi and Cain at those prices for a stiff like Hamels and a reliever even in a pitching heavy points league. My 2 cents.

I would do that deal. I don't think that Hamels has much left. He will be an average pitcher at this point forward.
