Re: Hamilton trade
I am taking this quote off another thread since it concerns Hamilton:
It's laughable that people actually think a starting pitcher is more valuable than someone winning the triple crown right now. It's absurd really.
Someone winning triple crown wouldnt mean much with Belisle and Fogg in rotation.
What is funny is all along, redszone has said trade this or that for pitching. We traded for pitching and the guy we traded is off to great start and some want him back.
Do we trade Dunn to a team where guys get on base like Hammy's mates do and watch Dunn hit 45 hr and drive in 135 and want him back too ?
Basically we want the guy we get to do great and the "other" guy to stink to make us feel better about the trade.
Yes the thought of Bruce/Hamilton in the OF does sound enticing but again...not so much with a rotation of Belisle/Fogg.
With Volquez here and Hamilton there, maybe if we concentrate on picking up Kinsler/Young from Texas in a swap for Patterson/Janish, our #3-5 guys will have some chances like Hamilton is getting right now.
