Trade

9 posts in this topic

I am looking to reduce my roster along with helping myself in a weak position.

I am thinking about moving Hamilton, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Brantley for Napoli.

Please let me know what you think. Like I said I need to cut down on my roster to get to 18 keepers.

I am looking to make this trade with the worst team in the league.

If it's Michael Brantley it looks to be a reasonable offer, however, trading Josh Hamilton could come back to haunt you. If the latters gets 500 healthy ABs in 2014 he could put up some decent numbers. I guess I am saying I think you are selling low on him. I grant you he's hard to value but I would be inclined to look for another piece along with Napoli. Then look to do another 2-for-1 deal to get down to 18 keepers.

He didnt play a single game at catcher, how shallow is the 1B pool? He was a .259 hitter with 23HR, you have to give up Josh Hamilton and Asdrubal Cabrera to find a .259 hitting 1B who doesnt hit 25HR? No thank you.

No. As much as Hamilton can be a pain he is still worth more than Napoli. Do NOT forget that Napoli had a hot April and and hot September. In between for 4 very long months he was totally sub-par.

Also the 1B pool is way large and you can easily fill it with an OF that qualifies with enough starts at 1B. Napoli's value will fall off the edge now that he is no longer catcher eligible. You trade partner is probably trying t odump him for just that reason.

From what I see the trade is 1x1 from your point of view, Hamilton x Napoli, since Brantley and Cabrera will not make the cut. However, I supoort most of the replies saying that I would trade Hamilton straight up for Napoli. It seems like you have your mind set with who are going to be your other keepers, but looking at your rosters I think you can trade now Victor Martinez at a high value. He will be 36 next season and even though his numbers were good and unexpected, they are not high enough numbers for a CI.

i think you can make a 3 x 1 including Martinez and 2 non keeper players for a better piece than Napoli.
