I wouldn't be surprised if it took another top 30 type player to go along with Hanley in order to pry Bats away.

I want to slap myself right now for saying it. As of right now Hanley's value is probably as low as it has ever been and Bats is exactly the opposite. I completely expect the two to be much closer in value by the end of the year.

In this poster's league, which uses OPS as the 6th category, Hanley will not come close to Bautista IMO. So you were spot on with your first comment.

In a standard league, if Hanley recovers, I can see them finishing closer in value. Though Bautista still has the edge IMO.

Here is my roster. Get to keep 7. I'm already decided on my 7 for now but one can always improve. I have some guys that SHOULD be keepers in this league that are gonna get thrown back so an upgrade is definitely in order.

Keepers
C- Matt Wieters
1b- Joey Votto
2b- Dustin Pedroia
3b- Brett Lawrie
ss- Hanley Ramirez
of- Desmond Jennings
uti- Eric Hosmer

Notable should be keepers for another team
Mark Trumbo
Shin-Soo Choo
Mike Trout
Dee Gordon

Joey Bat's owner is kind of a weird dude but here are what I would guess to be his keepers..

3b/rf- Jose Bautista
ss- Starlin Castro
rf- Mike Stanton
sp- Justin Verlander
sp- Clayton Kershaw
sp- Madison Bumgarner (he just traded Ryan Howard straight up for him)

After those guys I'm not sure. Here are my best guesses..
Alejandro De Aza (would be who I think but with this guy who knows)
Jemile Weeks
Gio Gonzalez

I would say only 3-4 owners in this league know much about prospects (hence why I have all the good ones B-) ) so I doubt he would be interested in Hosmer, Jennings, Lawrie. I offered him Trumbo cause his team is all about power. He let the offer lapse without a counter. What other offers make sense to you guys to send his way? Please keep in mind, I am set on not keeping ANY pitchers. I can draft my whole rotation and do just fine in this league.
