Hamilton/Cain for McCutchen

Postby BronXBombers51 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 5:27 pm

12 Teams - 6x6 (Normal plus OPS & Losses) - Rotisserie - 4-8 Keepers per year

C- Jesus Montero
1B- Michael Morse
2B- Ian Kinsler
3B- Miguel Cabrera
SS- Alcides Escobar
OF- Josh Hamilton
OF- Dexter Fowler
OF- Torii Hunter
Utl- Cody Ross
Utl- Rajai Davis

B- Garrett Jones
B- Juan Pierre
B- Jose Altuve
DL- Pablo Sandoval
DL- Troy Tulowitzki

SP- Felix Hernandez, Matt Cain, Yovani Gallardo, Ian Kennedy, Wei-Yin Chen, Carlos Villanueva, Jarrod Parker

RP- Alfredo Aceves, Craig Stammen, Jared Burton, Jeremy Affeldt

DL- Brandon Morrow

Don't have much hope left for this year, so this trade would mainly be for the future. Is McCutchen worth giving up Hamilton and Matt Cain for? Keepers for next year would be Cabrera, Kinsler, Sandoval, Tulowitzki, McCutchen, Felix, Gallardo. Essentially it's whether you'd rather have Hamilton/Cain or McCutchen/Gallardo in terms of keepers.

I think that giving up Hamilton and cain is too much for Andrew McCutchen. Hamilton and McCutchen are not that far off in talent and production.

Also I would consider keeping Brandon Morrow over Ian Kinsler.

I'll take the McCutchen side. I see Cain and Gallardo as incidentals, for keeper purposes. If I need one keeper for the next few years between McCutchen and Hamilton, I'm going with the rising star Pirate.
