I think it's a great deal for u. Cano isn't putting up huge stats like he used to and Price has been unreal lately. Plus Duda is a nice source of power and walks a lot. Chisenhall is overrated and I'm not quite sure if Yordano is reliable just yet. I actually just dropped him in my 11 team roto league last week.
Do the deal. A nice ace in H2H league is invaluable.

Yeah the more I broke it down, I came to pretty much the same conclusion as u. Milk comment cracked me up too. I ended up trading Cole Hamels for Michael Brantley.
I'm in an 11 team roto keeper league with the typical 5x5 stats but with OBP and OBPA.
I have Dee Gordon but his SB's aren't really helping me. Hanley and his AVG/OBP would help me more. Should I pull the trigger on this deal??

I think Hamilton is a top 15-20 for sure as long as he can continue to keep his average up. I'm not 100% sure that he can just yet but he's look really for the last 2.5 months. Him and Dee Gordon are both locks to be top 40 but both could end up finishing the year as top 5 guys because their steals are so valuable.
I was offered Hanley for Wainwright in a 11 team roto keeper league where we keep 5 guys and the stats are W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP and OBPA for pitchers and HR, RBI, SB, R, AVG and OBP for hitters.
I have Cole Hamels, Garrett Richards, Jake Arrieta and Alex Wood as my other SP's but I also deploy a bunch of middle relievers in Wade Davis, Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller which combined are pretty much like Sandy Koufax in his prime. I also have Doolittle, Cody Allen, Jake McGee and Addison Reed as closers. I'm (+27) innings over the 1425 inning cap and have 57 pitching points which is 9 points away from winning every category.
I have Ben Zobrist and Dee Gordon who are SS eligible but Hanley would be a huge upgrade over Zobrist and would help me a lot. Plus Zobrist could be a backup or fill a UTL spot. Should I do it??

Whip is essentially the same as OBPA just in a different form but we didn't want pitchers to be worth significantly less than hitters so we decided to add OBPA so there would be 6 offensive stats and 6 pitching stats. The other pitching stat options were stupid things like quality starts and #$%$.

Well I've passed all the people I could pass. Theres a couple people that are just way ahead of the pack in SB's and Im not going to catch them.
I'm really surprised to see people thinking this is a slam dunk in Hanley's favor. 20/20 SS vs middle infielder with insane speed and solid AVG/OBP. Dee Gordon is really valuable. 70-80 SB from a 2B is invaluable.
