N. Walker (2B)
D. Wright (3B)
R. Furcal (SS)
B. Lawrie (3B)
D. Espinosa (2B)
D. Fowler (OF)
J. Willingham (OF)
C. Rasmus (OF)
M. Saunders (OF)
J. Upton (OF)
D. Jeter (SS)
A. Gordon (OF)
D. Ackley (2B)
J. Smoak (!B)
E. Bonifacio (3B, SS, OF)
M. Kemp (OF)
J. Verlander
J. McDonald

I. Kinsler (2B)
M. Moustakas (3B)
R. Theriot (2B, SS)
H. Ramirez (3B, SS)
Z. Cozart (SS)
A. Gonzalez (1B, OF)
A. Ethier (OF)
M. Cabrera (OF)
G. Stanton (OF)
M. Brantley (OF)
W. Middlebrooks (3B)
C. Utley (2B)
J. Saltalamacchia (C)
N. Reimold (OF)
S. Strasburg
J. Johnson
M. Garza

F. Doubront
J. Hammel
C. Billingsley
V. Worley
J. Weaver
H. Bell
A. Chapman
B. Myers
J. Hanrahan
R. Soriano
A. Bailey

Okay, with all that out of the way, how do I go about trying to get Eric Hosmer for a reasonable price? Where do you guys think he is weak and I could try to exploit? I say SP... His points in those categories bear that out, too... (He is in fifth and I am in third, by the way...) I used to have depth in SP, but I dealt CC away a couple of weeks ago... Now, I am a little more thin there... I still think I have enough depth to deal someone, though... Anyone have any ideas for a 1-for-1 or a multi-player deal? I would say that anyone on my roster is touchable, except Trevor Bauer... It is a keeper league, as I said, and I am holding on to him! Anyways, thanks for any help! And I will help you, too...

I might throw him a Rasmus and Smoak for Hosmer deal and see what he thinks. Might not be enough to get it done but both are hot right now and have been big prospects so maybe he takes it. After that you might have to start dealing guys that are actually doing pretty good right now. Maybe McDonald or a deal involving Pablo.
