I like the idea of moving Rasmus and Holland to open up a spot for somebody coming off the DL, but I think it is too much for Hosmer.

I don't make that move. Hosmer has had the "potential" label for two year now and while he may still very well be great, Rasmus has shown this year that he is a 5-tool player and Holland has high upside and plays for a great team as well. I think it's too much for Hosmer. Unless if you're doing it to make room for Ellsbury or Stanton when he comes back, I would either aim higher to get another piece to package in another bigger, future deal. Your team looks absolutely stacked to me. I wouldn't make any changes besides that. Hope this helps.

Help with mine?

i agree with the above...too much for hosmer. maybe you get get a draft pick out of it or another player to even it up.

I tend to agree with the above...can you get a draft pick, too? But not a bad idea to clear roster space for Ellsbury/Crawford. Help me? viewtopic.php?t=450410

i love hosmer, but rasmus is hitting way more HRs...

If you have no other options to free up spots, then it's not a horrible deal.
