Would you swap Machado for Panda to get Hamels?

Postby mindspin311 » Sat May 11, 2013 9:37 pm

I received the following trade:

Give - Machado, Valverde, Betancourt
Get - Panda, Hamels, Howie Kendrick

I am OK with Rut, but the possibility of getting Hamels intrigues me. Especially after moving Miller to get Machado, and then Niese and Estrada imploding, and maybe Cingrani going back down.

I am going to counter back and get Howie and one of the closers out of the deal. Would you give Machado for Pablo to get Hamels as well? Seems like it's a no-brainer.

Is this a keeper league or 2013 only? In a long term keeper league, I would not make the deal. In a 2013 only league, I like the deal for you with following caveat to be aware of. It might be nothing, but Hamels control has been off most of his starts this season and his strikeout rates are down. Check out the game logs so you know what you are getting into. It could be just the result of a small sample. It could be a case of Hamels trying too hard to make every pitch perfect due to a lack of run support. But, it could also be a hidden injury.

Was just looking into moving Machado and getting Hamels as well and just read new Fangraphs article on Hamels -

Long & short, go get Hamels
