I think you are paying too much for guy batting .176. I do think it is close enough to make the trade if you want. Who was drafted in the 3rd rd this year?

Thanks for the response bud!

Yea but i've kept Ellsbury last year and had him in other leagues prior and i'm sick of his injuries to be honest. I do think last year was an outlier, however he is an elite keeper.

But i fel Hosmer is gonna be huge (along with eveyrone else in the world)! I have a team to win this year, I fi do this deal I have Kemp, HanRam, Kinsler, Hosmer, Pablo, Halladay, and a rookie.

PLus Hosmer is young too. I want to do this deal for sure but I am high on trumbo and Kipnis for the future, as they are powerful but i have their positions locked down by Kinsler and Pablo (potentially Hosmer)

PLus i get some power back with Boesch and flexibility with Murhpy

still undecicded

Your team right now shows Hosmer and Ellsbury. So who do you have at 1B now? I don't like the deal anyway though. Ellsbury and Hosmer are similar value right now with Ellsbury hurt. Kipnis and Hudson are the next two best players and then Trumbo, Boesch and Murphy are all lumped together. I think you are giving up too much so either get something else in the deal or cut some of it out.

Right now I have Pablo Sandoval at first. I just sent the other manager a msg saying to add something or i'll take something out... I think i shuold go after another SP. He has Jordan ZImmerman which i'd like and he has Josh Johnson... he kept him last year but is off to a shitty syart so he may be a buy low candidate... or shouold i avoid him?

I think you can do better. If you absolutely must have Hosmer get something to sweeten the deal for you.
