I would do that trade. You get the best player. While giving up some decent talent. It's not elite level talent like you are getting back. I also really like Aoki this year with the Royals. Solid deal for you. ;-D

help on mine?

I think I would hold. Hosmer and Hayward are both young and see them taking big leaps forward this year. Not an Aoki fan.

Please help;

I do it, but I am a huge Goldschmidt fan. Hosmer can keep growing but I think Heyward is what he is and that's it.

If you can only keep 10 of the players you listed then I would definitely do it because Goldschmidt is a definite keeper while Hosmer and Heyward (who I like a lot) are on the fence.

Annual 30+ home run potential is a scarce commodity these days.

Neither Heyward or Hosmer are going to do that consistently. Not an Aoki fan either, but maybe try to get him to offer something else instead of him?

I'm taking Paul all day, but I'd try to get something besides Aoki if I could.

Thanks for the help gentlemen.

We eventually agreed upon Goldschmidt, Zobrist, and Soria for Heyward, Hosmer, and Kendrick. ;-D
