Re: Possible trade - need help!
Well, I think the return you are getting is a good return. Hamels is a good pitcher, Hawpe is a good hitter. Harden is injury prone, but a tremendous pitcher when healthy. He'll be working out of the bullpen for the near future. Not sure what your categories are for pitching.
The thing is, though, you can't keep any of the players you are getting in return as you've already got your 3 keepers in Pujols, Wright and Crawford. Should you maybe keep Hamels or Harden over Crawford? Maybe Hamels, but not Harden with his injury history.
I think the return is good, but you have to believe you are getting upgrades for THIS year's team because long term this trade might not have any impact at all. I do think you're getting fair value in return, though.
Defininitely try to get more than just my opinion, though. I'm not playing fantasy baseball this year so I don't know how every player in the league is performing like I used to. I just did a quick lookup on each of the players and that's where I drew my conclusion. As an aside, it looks like Howard is really starting to put it together at the plate after struggling to start the season.
