Trade Hamilton?

Postby Jjaynj » Fri Mar 22, 2013 7:48 am

So, I went a little overboard with Angels in a 10-team seasonal H2H with standard scoring categories (roster in sig) and thinking I may need to diversify instead of having all of my eggs in one basket. In fact I just expanded my Angels obsession by making the trade to get Trout by trading away Joey Bats and Weaver for Trout and Lynn. That said, I'm a little weak at SP now and again overweight Angels. 3 questions:

1) Would you trade Josh Hamilton for Bryce Harper straight-up just to diversify?
2) Would you trade Josh Hamilton for a pitcher like Hamels or Lee?
3) Can I afford to trade Hamilton for a SP?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

I would be fine trading Hamilton for Harper or Hamels not sure I would do it for Lee though. I think you would be fine in the OF if you made a deal for a SP.

first off, i'm just gonna say that i'm attempting to take apply some of mighty grey's teachings here.
1. if this isn't a 5 OF, 2 Catcher league you have too many of those.
2. If this isn't a keeper league you likely don't need really good prospects (profar,myers) who don't currently have starting jobs nearly as much as you probably need either more good RP's (should likely be closers left in 10 team leagues maybe only DET knucklebangers, or Veras/Parnell/Marmol, maybe even Cishek, but still. Especially since you have so many 2B and OF'ers.
3. If this is keeper, it may be smart to hold those 2, as they are both top 10 hitting prospects; but if keeper, why is your roster so small overall?
4. If not keeper, i'm just noticing, that even if you trade hamilton, can you imagine a situation, outside of a major injury to one of your other OF'ers, assuming this isn't a 5 OF league, where Myers plays regularly, even when he's likely called up in June?
5. per both Grey's H2H guidelines of quantitiy of Pitching rather than small amount of quality (your first 2 guys, gallardo and moore, quality) you'd i'd think want more good, but not great SP's and some more RP's. Unless you only can roster 2 RP's per day. especially at least one SP with great whip, like hamels or lee.
6. You appear to be one injury away at 1st and 3rd from having no backup there at all.
7 Add it all up, trade hamilton/utley/maybe myers for lee or hamels and 1 more good RP and at least one good backup at 1st or 3rd, like todd frazier. You'd also protect yourself from injuries by doing so.

I would try a lester plus lesser bat for a sp upgrade 241 and keep Hamilton. You probably want 3 sp and stream a 2 starter every week
