You disagree? hes giving up a 10 game winner for cueto?
roberts over theriot isnt much of an improvement at 2b, braun moves to the OF for hamilton..atkins goes to 1st or 3b so whos gonna play wherever he doesnt go..longoria play 3b..but then who is at UT? roberts? or theriot-thats a downgrade from longoria at that spot.

and hunter pence? Pence replaces Hamilton in the OF. A downgrade, but Pence has got 20/20 potential and avg. upside.
Braun therefore doesn't go anywhere.
Atkins slides into 1b, check out his career pre/post splits:
Pre-All Star 312 1182 173 344 74 2 41 191 110 166 5 3 .291 .351 .461 .813
Post-All Star 259 956 141 300 59 3 37 183 103 137 2 1 .314 .382 .498 .880
Roberts ranked 64 in yahoo, theriot 150, plus roberts has upside.
so, you improve 1b, 2b and get a credible OF back PLUS cueto. Lohse doesn't strike anyone out and has an ERA near 4 which severly limits his upside.
please don't make me work so hard next time:)
I disagree, good deal for you.
Hamilton has never played a full season. I love him, have him on a few of my teams, including one keeper. BUT, you get back Pence to plug in after him, you get an upgrade at 1B with atkins (and you need the HR/RBI) and Roberts is undervalued, he is an upgrade the rest of the way over Theriot. Cueto is kind of a wild card, but he's has great stuff.
Lohse is a 12 team scrub, Derosa has been around, look at his career avg. that's what he'll do within reason this year maybe a little better since he's on a good team but any trades and he might be out.
