Trading away Josh Hamilton?

Postby Tony B. » Sun Jun 22, 2008 5:42 pm

I drafted him round 10, I can keep him at that round for 2009. The rest of my outfield consists of Holliday (round 3 KEEPER), Pence (round 4), Rios (round 10, acquired in a trade 2 weeks ago), Johnny Damon (round 19), and Carlos Quentin (cannot be kept due to our league rule of if a player wasn't drafted in the 2008 draft, he cannot be kept for 2009, he goes back into the draft for 2009).

The scenario is, I'm in 1st place. The only category I suck in is stolen bases. I'm ranked 8th out of 10 with only 51 stolen bases. I'm within 15-25 of moving up 3 to 4 spots. An owner has approached me about trading me his BJ Upton (round 14) for Hamilton straight up. Would you do this deal?

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 was figuring the same thing.

A follow-up, a guy has also proposed to me his Matt Kemp for my Alex Rios. Stand pat or go through with it?

In keeper leagues, it's always best to win this year, otherwise, what's the point? As long as you have the offense to sustain a Hamilton loss, you're golden with the B.J. deal.
14 team h2h keeper (keep 5), $101 FAAB budget. C,1B,2B,SS,3B,MI,CI,U,5SP,2RP... It's standard 5x5, but we use quality starts instead of wins. I currently have $1 left in FAAB money.

Yeah, I think I would go with BJ...hes stealing a lot more bases although the home run pop has come down a bit.
