I have been offered Hosmer and Zimmerman for Holliday. Is this a good trade for me?

While I think you could use an upgrade at 3B (Carroll is a stretch in a 10 team league) you're trading for two guys who are struggling for a guy who is red hot. If they were all playing at career norms, I'd say sure, but Zimmerman is struggling mightly while battling injuries and Hosmer is having a rough year. I'd look on the FA list and see if you couldn't improve your 3B situation that way instead...

Thoughts on mine?

I agree with the above statement.

I actually drafted all three guys on my team so I have been watching them all very closely. I just dropped Zimmerman last night for Middlebrooks. Hosmer at this point is a borderline drop. So basically, you will be getting 2 guys that are worthy of being dropped for a possible all-star. Wouldn't do it
