Price or Hamels?

Keeper points league...

I want to trade Sabathia and Josh Johnson for a top pitcher (younger and more consistent) for this year and the future. If you could pick Price or Hamels in a vacuum, which would you want?

Hamels' owner is very new and trade-shy so I might have a slightly better chance of getting Price, given his struggles...

Thoughts?

I'd rather have Price.

I like hamels better but I also think verlander deserved the Cy Young last year.

Price's velocity is way down so far this year. Just dead arm or something more?

Does it make a difference that Price's upcoming schedule looks much tougher? I see lots of DET and AL East rivalry games coming up (TOR, NYY, BOS). What about the Rays offense? That going to get better?

Or is the general consensus that Price is good enough that none of that really matters?

I am going to implement the PEDS rule (http://razzball.com/peds-performance-en ... tegy-peds/) #5 on this one.

agree on hamels. hamels can (and prob will) turn it around in a big way with better weather. i don't think he does well in wind/rain/cold (despite that rainy Rays-Phils WS).
