12 Team 5x5 standard roto league 1500 IP limit, keep any 10 players indefinitely
I give Teixeira, Hosmer, Russell Martin, and Colby Lewis I receive Cargo, Haren
My new lineup would be C Carlos Santana 1B Gaby Sanchez 2B Robinson Cano 3B Jhonny Peralta SS Troy Tulowitzki 1F Luke Scott OF Chris Young OF Carlos Gonzalez OF Brett Gardner OF Jose Tabata Util Carlos Lee BN Mike Fontenot DL Nelson Cruz DL Josh Hamilton DL Ike Davis
My starting pitchers would be Grienke, Haren, J Sanchez, Hellickson, Ogando, S Baker, Beachy, H Bailey
I would take that deal if I were you. Cargo is better than Teixeira. And in my opinion Hosmer, Lewis and Martin won't help you as much as Haren will. Plus you have Carlos Santana at Catcher anyway, that would have been one concern if you didn't have him, but since you do I would say no doubter take the deal.
Larry - "Who's this? Who are you?" Crash Davis - "I'm the player to be named later."
In a vaccum, i'd say don't make the trade, but because of the depth you have at the positions you're giving up, it definitely makes your team much better. Who else is available on the waiver wire to fill in your roster spots you'll have after the trade?
I'm a relative newbie to fantasy, and only follow the NL, and primarily the NL West, so I can't comment on the AL players you are giving up. What I can tell you is that both Carlos Gonzalez and Dan Haren are absolute studs. I'd grab them.

Whoever I pick up will just be holding the spots until Ike Davis, Cruz and Hamilton come off the DL........but Fuld, Carlos Pena, Moreland, Brantly, Hardy, Byrd are available
