I'd be impressed if you pull it off, but it's worth a shot...

Like teezy said, I'd be impressed if you can swing it, but holy snikes look at your team. Damn.

I'd make that deal. Hosmer is great to own in a keeper, but your team is already so stacked you wouldn't have a place for him among your six picks. He's worth dealing for Ubaldo and his potentially large second half contribution.

Nothing to lose by offering the trade and getting declined. I say offer it. It would be a great deal for you especially since your not keeping Hosmer.

This is a good trade for your team, but I wouldn't get my hopes up with Ubaldo... There's definitely potential there though, and you're not losing much with Hosmer since you're not keeping him and you have viable utility replacements ready to go.

help?

Yea that's a great deal, no reason not to take it. I like Hosmer, but Ubaldo has shown us how impressive he can be in half a season, and it's worth the chance he may do it again.
