2B Brandon Phillips, Cin 2B
3B Jamey Carroll, Min 2B, 3B, SS
SS Jed Lowrie, Hou SS, 3B
2B/SS Dustin Pedroia, Bos 2B
1B/3B Albert Pujols, LAA 1B
OF Matt Holliday, StL OF
OF Hunter Pence, Phi OF
OF Austin Jackson, Det OF
OF Bryce Harper, Wsh OF
OF Melky Cabrera, SF OF
UTIL Neil Walker, Pit 2B
Bench Drew Stubbs*, Cin OF  DL15
Bench Chase Utley*, Phi 2B  DL15

I have been offered Hosmer and Zimmerman for Holliday. Is this a good trade for me?

While I think you could use an upgrade at 3B (Carroll is a stretch in a 10 team league) you're trading for two guys who are struggling for a guy who is red hot. If they were all playing at career norms, I'd say sure, but Zimmerman is struggling mightly while battling injuries and Hosmer is having a rough year. I'd look on the FA list and see if you couldn't improve your 3B situation that way instead...

Thoughts on mine?

I agree with the above statement.

I actually drafted all three guys on my team so I have been watching them all very closely. I just dropped Zimmerman last night for Middlebrooks. Hosmer at this point is a borderline drop. So basically, you will be getting 2 guys that are worthy of being dropped for a possible all-star. Wouldn't do it
