Aaron Hill for Eric Hosmer - WHIR

Postby bobnerns » Mon May 09, 2011 6:00 pm

I play in a 14-team, non-keeper, H2H 5x5 league. My offense is

C - Matt Wieters
1B - Mark Teixeira
2B - Brandon Phillips
3B - David Wright
SS - Asdrubal Cabrera
MI - Freddy Sanchez
CI - Paul Konerko
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Adam Jones
OF - Michael Cuddyer
OF - Coco Crisp
OF - Ryan Raburn
UTIL - Eric Hosmer
Bench - Jose Tabata
Bench - Logan Morrison

I picked up Eric Hosmer as soon as he was promoted and use him at UTIL. I've been looking for a replacement for Freddy Sanchez ever since the draft. Michael Cuddyer almost has 2B eligibility (with 7 appearances and 10 needed) but the Twins have halted his time there. My other plan for replacing Sanchez had been to pick up Dustin Ackley when he gets promoted in probably June.

The team with Aaron Hill is shopping him around and needs a 1B. Should I take this trade?

I think it's a good trade for you. It upgrades your MI by quite a bit and you have Morrison coming back from the DL this week who can slide right into that UTIL spot. Your team looks better with this trade.

I don't think I would do this trade. Hill really didn't do anything all last year, and hasn't shown anything this year that he's gonna snap out of it. Hosmer is the hot name right now, if other teams know you are shopping him you might be able to find another MI.

right now I think I would wait and see if Hill can produce. some might question weather or not Hosmer could produce, but right now I think I would have more confidence in Homer over Hill. you could see who else has MI player that could give you more for Hosmer. you don't really need 2B as you could also take a SS and use him at MI too.

I also would not do this one. Not that it is an awful deal, but I'd rather have the upside of Hosmer than the risk of Hill at this point.

I'd keep Hosmer, good trade bait later on in the season probably gonna put like 18 HRs 70 RBIs.
