why on earth would you drop AJ? He is a top 40 SP. I would drop Ackley or Nova first. Ackley you don't need with Kipnis and AJ has outperformed Nova.
In terms of the trade it is a push. Hosmer and Santana have been two of the biggest disappointments of the year.SO you are trading one head ache for another. You get the surprise RP of the year, but he is old and honestly how much more does he have in the tank. I am more impressed with AJ in a small market to continue to perform.
Don't know if you keep any of these players. So basically do this trade if you need RP. Keep AJ and drop Ackley if you need SP.

IMO nova has better numbers. In the last 30 days nova has better era whip and ks. Not by much but still better. Who do you think will have better numbers at the end of the year. Plus Ackley I think is a keeper and will be much better next year. I was thinking about keeping him. As for the trade Hosmer is younger and will last longer as a 1st bs than a C will last. But is Hosmer the real deal? That's my question.
