N Cruz for C Hamels??? WHIR

Postby redsoxsucker » Wed Jun 22, 2011 8:07 pm

Hi all - I am in a 5X5 10 team keeper league, currently in 2nd place. My SP has taken a hit lately with DL stints and, while I am doing well in pitching, it is starting to feel like smoke and mirrors...

I was just offered Cole Hamels for Nelson Cruz. I FEEL like I can afford to give up some offense, but want to be certain I can't just wait our Hanson, Colon and eventually JJohnson to get my pitching back in order. Having Hamels would clearly cement me though.

I don't know if Morse is a fluke and would be counting on him more if I trade Cruz. My roster is below.

Would you make this move??? WHIR

It could go either way but I'd take that trade. You have Ethier or Young to take over if Morse turns out to be a flash in the pan. Also, Hamels is younger and has no history of injuries while Cruz does which could be a plus for this and future seasons.

In terms of our OF, I think you can afford to take a hit by giving away Cruz, especially for Hamels...I'd do this deal and feel great about it.
