I get: Joey Votto and Trevor Cahill


12 Team H2H. We Keep 6 Players Season to Season, each for 3 years max. * means contract year

Stat Cats: R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

This trade would be a steal for you man. He is selling Votto for WAY too low.

With the new deal, you already have 3 1B......... Looks pretty crowded if you're also getting Votto and Hosmer. It would be nice to get Votto, but I like Hanson over both Cahill and Zimmerman. I think I might shop Bruce around a little more if you're looking to ship him off.

The first deal was better, but I'd still do it.

Just need a bit of clarification:

I have gotten the sense on the boards that most people would prefer Hosmer over Lawrie.

Since that is the only tweak to the deal, I'm curious why most feel the deal was better when I was not giving up Lawrie and getting Hosmer. Is it just because I have so many 1B already that I would be better off with Lawrie than Hosmer?

Not disagreeing with anyone but just want to make sure I follow correctly.
