eh.

Hamilton for Stanton straight up seems plenty fair to me. even if it's just two rounds apart, i do not think they were needed.

whats the angle? because stanton is younger? injuries? both got issues. hamilton still probably has 2-3 elite years left in him.


just curious as to your reasoning behind the inclusion of picks...

re: WF Baseball Keeper League - Draft = Wed, Mar 6 @ 10pm CT. Lock keepers ASAP.

Is there really a huge gap between 8th rounders and 10th rounders for it to matter really? I could see if it was an 8th and 20th swap. I think straight up is pretty fair too, but I didn't mind paying a bit extra.

But yeah Stanton is almost a decade younger and Stanton's power is supreme pretty much. Will he ever get a pitch to hit this season with only AAA guys around him? lol that's the big question isn't it. Don't know. I'll gamble on the guy that can hit a baseball into next week though. I'm also thinking about next year, though admittedly we don't know if the league will be around then. Also, I want some new blood and not have a team of just RANGERS.

re: WF Baseball Keeper League - Draft = Wed, Mar 6 @ 10pm CT. Lock keepers ASAP.

right. it is just two rounds. however, my point was that i think that straight up it's a fair deal.

plus, i think that hamilton will outperform stanton in 2013. look at james' projections..

hamilton: .289 - 35 hr - 114 rbi - 96 runs - 7 sb - .356 obp - .540 slg
stanton: .284 - 43 hr - 103 rbi - 88 runs - 6 sb - .365 obp - .605 slg

very comparable. except with the shit around him, I dont stanton does that well. he might walk more. but i doubt he gets even 100 RBIs. who will get on-base on front of him?

flex has too many high round picks.

Why intentionally walk BIG FUCK when he doesn't take walks well (Dunn level hacker) in a horrid ballpark for power that'll rob him of 10% of his total a year? If I'm not allowed, say so

The RBI and run opportunities will definitely be more plentiful for Hamilton if he's a Ranger. But what if he's a Mariner? I do think think he's a Ranger though. Texas has to re-sign him since they won't be getting Upton (GET BOTH TEXAS GAH). I think the trade has to go with the future factored in however. Yeah, this league could die at any moment, but we should play like it's not. Stanton > Hamilton over the long haul. Plus his nickname is BIG FUCK. I factored that in as well.

just curious as to your reasoning behind the inclusion of picks...
I think you have to understand that last year was a career year for Hamilton. Can he replicate it? Yes, but even after a career year, there is still some disconcerting issues surrounding Hamilton. Where will he sign? Will he remain focused? He's got drug and alcohol addictions, a caffeine addiction, and a chewing tobacco addiction. A fan fell out of the stands and died when Josh threw a ball in that direction. His cornea and retina's dried up from a lack of caffeine last year. He was in a prolonged, two month slump when it mattered most. Will Josh mail it in after signing a lucrative contract?

There's a bad aura and stigma around the guy. I'm not inferring that he is someone with poor character, I just think he's as heavy of a risk as there is with all these internal issues. Whereas Stanton had the same BA, just about the same amount of HR's, same SB's, higher OBP, higher slugging in 30-35 less games played than Hamilton. Josh will certainly win RBI's and Runs scored if he stays in Texas. I can not deny that with the pitiful lineup supporting Stanton.

I get the counterargument of why Stanton shouldn't be on anybody's radar. It's been stated to me many times. But even in a down year, the guy almost matched or surpassed all of Hamilton's numbers with the exception of RBI's and R's.

If everything I cited isn't worth moving from the bottom of the 10th round up to the 8th round, then voice your displeasure and veto. I don't know why I typed this because I don't think it was worth justifying. I think it's a reasonable trade. Just know I don't try to rip anyone off and it's all done out of good will. Every move I do, I consider what the other side is getting as well.


A$AP

I'm glad Ziggler Claus weighed in on the poll.

Should we draft today?
