Should I do this trade? WHIR

Postby BlueJaysFan » Sun May 22, 2011 1:17 pm

I was offered Eric Hosmer for Tim Hudson. I'm not sure if Hosmer is a good enough prospect to give up a top pitcher. However, I'm already projected to go 220 innings over the limit and I would probably have to bench Hudson at several of his starts. Yesterday I got Jaime Garcia, and the rest of my starters are underrated, so maybe this is a good trade. My biggest problem with the offer is that I could have picked up Hosmer from the FA pool, if I acted quicker.

if it's a keeper, this is a done deal in my mind. you're ok on pitching (not a bunch of absolute sure things, but solid) and hosmer has nice power upside. question is: where would hosmer play? you have miggy, tex, howard, dunn...

My bad, I dont have Howard anymore, I traded him for Cano yesterday. It`s not a keeper so I`m not sure if I should do it.

In a non-keeper, i don't think I'd do it. Hudson has been pretty consistent
