critical votto/verlander deal. win now mode. input??

Postby gopirates! » Thu Jul 12, 2012 8:48 pm

Hey all

I just got offered a trade that I, for some reason, am finding very intriguing. The deal is as follows:

I get: Hosmer/Verlander
I give: Joey Votto

Maybe it's my soft spot toward starting pitching, but I am not throwing this deal in the trash, like I usually do with deals for Joey Votto. I am in a 12-team keeper league. Can keep 1 player I drafted between rds 1-12 (was thinking votto or cutch), 1 btwn 13-24 (moustakas) and 1 FA (Bauer). I am currently in third place and I am in WIN NOW mode. Not playing for the future. Win now. So given my team below, should I pull the trigger? Help a brotha out and I'll be sure to check out your thread. Thanks guys ;-D

Sems fair enough, Hosmer could be in for a much better 2nd half
