Hamilton for Ichiro?

Postby JewDog31 » Tue May 12, 2009 10:26 am

12 team mixed keeper. 5x5 we keep 10.

I have:

C: Weiters, Baker.
1B: Berkman
2B: Utley
SS: Alexei, Rollins
3B: Longoria
OF: Hamilton, Bruce, Pence, Hunter, Dukes, Bourne, Tavares

SP: Lowe, Wainwright, Joba, Hughes, Porcello, Maine, Hochaver
RP: Street, Franklin, Capps, Sherill

-----------------------------------------------------

The proposed trade is:
I Get: Ichiro, David Price

I Give: Hamilton, Huston Street


I am doing very well in power despite Hamilton's slow start. I'm middle of the pack in speed but I can sit a couple guys to get Bourne and Tavares in for extra steals. I'm doing terribly in average.

I should compete in average assuming Rollins, Berkman, Ramirez, and Hamilton start to hit. Rollins could give me the speed that I'm missing but I could definately use the boost in average and runs from Ichiro and the pitching help never hurts if Price can pitch like they say.

Am I right to turn down this deal?
12 Team, Head to Head, 5 x 5, Keeper League.

C - Russel Martin, Matt Weiters
2B - Gordon Beckham, Chone Figgins, Aaron Hill (DL)
3B - Evan Longoria, Chipper Jones
SS - Troy Tuowitzki
OF - Colby Rasmus, Hunter Pence, Ichiro Suzuki, Rajai Davis, Coco Crisp, Logan Morrison (DL)
SP - Josh Johnson, Josh Beckett, Brett Anderson, Francisco Liriano, Jordan Zimermann, Justin Masterson, Travis Wood, Brandon McCarthy
RP - Chris Perez, Brandon League, John Rauch

I don't like the trade for you.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Yeah, I don't like that I'm giving Hamilton for depth, I'd rather trade my depth for someone topheavy.

His team is:

C: McCann, Flores
1B: Giambi
2B: Kaz Matsui
SS: Yunel Escobar
3B: Arod, Lowell
OF: Ichiro, Burell, Fukudome, Francouer, Danny Murphy, JD Drew
UTIL: Ortiz

SP: Beckett, Kershaw, Price, Jurjens, Young, Zito, Stults, Martis, Sanches, Zambrano(DL), Wang(DL)
RP: Rivera, Wood

He's fighting for last place and desperately wants Hamilton (who is kept in the 14th round). I told him I'm not sure I can make a deal unless i get back and/or McCann but he doen't want to part ways with them. What do you think? Not much else there besides Arod, Ichiro, and McCann.

I don't see a clear fit with that team. Sorry...
