I would keep Tex and I love Hosmer for the future.

As high as I am on Hosmer, I don't think I could see myself parting with Teixeira for him. He's still an elite 1B and a much safer play than Hosmer is.

I second this motion.

Easily Teixeira. Better ballpark, better line up, more power, and he's better right now.

I think thats where I'm torn...he's better RIGHT NOW. But some rankings have Tex and Hosmer within just rank of each other. The potential for Hosmer is there, and maybe this year is his year. Although taking a guy like Tex, barring any sort of set back, I'd like to say he's going to get me AT LEAST 30+ home runs, where Hosmer may not. This has been a tough call for me...I certainly appreciate all of the input on this fellas, it has helped quite a bit.

I have Teixeira Ranked as my 7th overall 1B and I think im being generous at that. He finished 67 overall last year and for a 1B compare to Fielder who i have ranked 5th at 1b and finished 20th best overall last year. Hosmer I will most likely rank in the low 40's since I believe he will have a nice constant year this year and could be an excellent fill in for those that draft miggy when he gets moved to 3rd.

So overall I think Teixeira is way over rated and would rather you go with Hosmer for the future.

Better lineup yes. But not that big of a difference that it should change your view. The Royals have an up and coming team and they scored plenty of runs last year.

Based on your keepers, which are quite strong for the future AND right now, I would make this deal. Yes, losing Hosmer for Tex is going to bite you in the long term, but it will help you out for sure in 2012. And with your other keepers, that gives you an incredibly good set of players IMO.

With those keepers you can afford the risk, go with Hosmer!
