Or should I try for MY Hanley/Greinke for HIS Josh Hamilton/Verlander? He has been advertising that Josh Hamilton is on the trading block but not sure if he would go for that.

What size league is this?
Your team already looks solid. I like the Hamilton version better but he makes me nervous. The thing is that I really believe Hanley reverts back to his studly self this season and I'm not a Rollins fan. If you go with Hamilton instead then you have to start Jeter at short which is a significant hit while Hamilton would start over Beltran or Lind. I'm tempted to say stay with your team.

Please help with mine

Nope on both. I like Hanley this year and reports are pretty encouraging out of spring training (take that for what it is worth). The first deal is a heck no. The second deal for Hamilton isn't bad, I just like Hanley more and I think Verlander and Greinke are closer than you might think.

Agreed - keep what you have. Hanley >> Rollins and Grienke is a ver good SP in his own right.
