Should I do this deal? I obviously have a glaring need at shortstop, but I don't want to make a desperate move. Votto will boost my team's BA, but I would be losing some power in giving up Werth. Not to mention I would be further depleting and already depleated pitching staff. Let me know what you think, thanks!

My problem is I think Young is overatted for a fantasy team. He hits clutch for the Rangers (& the AL during the all-star game) but his numbers are not as great as people give him credit for. They are good numbers, not lights out!
I love watching teams in my league draft him in first round. I wouldn't touch him until round 8 or higher. Votto is a quality player. But Hoffman is like a kid again, and werth hits some big shots. I wouldn't do this trade, if I were you.
