I'm in the Lawrie AND Hosmer camp. There should be plenty of Pineda/Beachy types available via draft. You're not talking about throwing back elite SPs.

Hitting over pitching. Keep both Lawrie and Hosmer if at all possible.

I've never played in a league where SP is over valued or extra valued, but I don't think you toss a better hitter for a lesser pitcher to help balance your keepers. SP is very deep and you'll be fine by the time you fill your rosters. It may feel uncomfortable for the offseason being so hitter heavy in a SP biased league, but its still about keeping the best players as your starting point. Keep both stud hitters, theres always trading and Hosmer gets you better than Beachy/Pineda if you'd need to go that route
