I say yeah, as your pitching is on life support. I think Davis slotting in for Hosmer (wherever he bats) should be fine, and Posey can be replaced by Lucroy, Doumit, or Hernandez. It'll be a downgrade of course (though Lucroy is interesting) but who cares, it's Felix Hernandez. Go for it.

I'd say do it. Your offense looks pretty good, and your pitching needs help.

Thanks for your help on mine!

I like it simply because your pitching is so weak. Get AJ and then ride out a hot bat at catcher the rest on the year.

Go for it.

I'd pick up Lucroy as the replacement catcher.

Obviously Hosmer is expendible from my roster, and i need a starting pitcher? What calibre guy you think he could yield? I think i should also look into dealing him for a an OF possibly

thoughts?
