My bad, I thought Polanco was hurt for some reason, must have been thinking of one of the other 30 (exagerating) 3B out there on the DL. I still thinks this makes no sense trade wise, not for th reasons you say you want. Yes HR production at a thin position is great, but Hosmer is too young to be considered a sure thing, he will be best used as a UTIL player this yr IMO while you have one of the best and most consistent 1B out there. And I would rather keep Votto over Hosmer any day. You have to keep in mind in a keeper league, not many will keep a SS not named Tulo, Reyes or Hanley, there will be options next yr to pick up someone better than Jeter. AAANNNNDDD since there arent serviice time or ADP restrictions on your keepers, heres how I see them going:
I see those as being Lawrie, Hosmer, Wieters or Joyce...maybe even Harper even though he wont play a game this season and probably not until June of next season
Wieters is not a bad C option, and is finally starting to produce decently, may pick up that power soon. Lawrie will be 2B eligible, along with 3B next yr due to Yahoo's wierd eligibility requirements from previous yr stats. Hosmer may be the real deal, I certainly think its treding that way, but would in no way count on him to continue producing at his current level once he starts facing faimliar pitching at the end of the yr, when you will need him the most. Joyce could finish out doing what hes doing, which makes him more valuable than all the other guys as the +1.
I just dont see any sense in trading away your top HR producer for 2 guys who will get you 20 when you could sit stilll and ride this out. If it were me, I would try and trade away some of these highly sought after rookies, because since you have no penalty for keepers, you can keep anyone you trade for. Some people are so high on rookies for keeper status theyll take a potential for proven talent trade. That way you could maybe upgrade that SP staff and contend
