No on that offer as well. Cain >>> Lincecum, but the rest of the trade is a wash the other way. Regardless of name: Beltran > Hamilton
Is now a good time to buy low on hamilton and cain or should i avoid them because there on a down year?
Cain, yes. Hamilton, no.
There's nothing in Cain's peripheral numbers that say he is on a decline; just unlucky. His flyball-to-HR-ratio is WAAAAAY above the league norm...that should come back down to the average...if not below the average based on his 3yr splits.
Hamilton, on the other hand, is well on a decline...and his 3yr averages show it. He'll give you right around 25HRs and 90 RBIs...maybe more in that LAA lineup (which will come around)...but his average is rapidly declining and his K-rate was a career high last year. He was NOT worth the 2nd rd price tag that most payed to draft him this year. I wouldn't buy him at his asking price.
