Overall this seems okay. If you were looking at a prospect list, these guys are probably close to one another on it. Especially if its tailored to our league, since Hampson would otherwise get a bump in leagues where SBs are worth as much as HR.
Still, I prefer the HLR side getting Hampson. He closed out September/October with a .378 wOBA in the actual major leagues (points now > points in 2021) and at three premium positions while Welker was just okay in AA. I think Welker may even be a 1B now. He’s not a 3B in Colorado with Nolan Arenado there, that’s for sure.
So if the prospects are basically a coin flip, give me the one that’s going to score points sooner and offer more versatility to my team.
Wow I like this trade for Hustle. I wish I had seen Hampson on the trade block I would have inquired. Multiple positions (the good ones too). Cost controlled and had good end to the season.
He’s on the trade block right now if either of you are interested
Hampson has been advertised and on the block for a while and finally found a home. It’s a good way to do business, make sure everyone knows a player is available so you don’t second guess what you received. No need to rush.
Who is Garrett Hampson
last years triple slash lines in AA(eastern league) and AAA (PCL) respectively. To my untrained eye he looks like he should be a high obp guy with a better than average hit tool and probably speed over power. He is off to a slow start but I think he could be a quality starting guy in this league. Hampson’s slow start may have cost him an opportunity to take the 2B job as Ryan McMahon is back from the IL and Hampson has not played the last 4 games. But if you are making this trade you believe in Hampson and you have a roster where you can hopefully sit and wait for him to get traded into a starting spot or an injury opens up an opportunity. With Rodgers also getting close, Hampson may have a tough fit in Colorado.
I like this trade for Organized Chaos as he gets an mlb ready player that may just require a little patience. As for TBD he has always liked his draft picks, and if he doesn’t get an extra pick here he is spending 5-10 dollars to pick one up at draft time.
