Fielder for Bourn and Hanley

Postby AdmiralTrey » Mon Jul 30, 2012 3:38 pm

Hola, Grey and friends!

I just traded Prince Fielder and Jared Burton for Hanley Ramirez and Michael Bourn... I'm a little apprehensive losing the best player in the deal, but I felt like that this was the best move for my team in an H2H league. Castro has been floundering at SS lately and Mike Moustakas just got hurt, so I really needed a 3B and Hanley's dual SS/3B eligibility made him fit even better.

Was I a little ill-advised here? Hanley has nearly as many HR's and runs as Prince and Bourn gives me a second elite SB option to dominate the category in H2H while providing solid runs and BA as well. I know that I'll lose a few RBI here, but I feel like my team can handle that in a H2H league, and with Hanley hitting cleanup behind Eithier and Kemp, his RBI production might pick up a good bit, too...

Should I kick myself or kiss myself? (Team is the top team in my sig)

Sounds like a very solid trade...

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.

Thanks, Grey, I always second guess myself when I make a trade with a league mate while at a Braves game. "Man, Michael Bourn just made a great catch, hey, you have Bourn in our league, how about he be part of the Hanley deal?"...

Next time, you should go to a Tigers game and get Miggy...

That would actually be worth the cost of the plane tickets and hotels... Miggy, Braun, Trout, and Hanley/Kershaw as keepers? I could go for that! I'd even offer to buy the beer for the Miggy manager, even though he's only 19.

FBI, I was only kidding.
