I Give: Samardzjia and Hosmer
I Get: Altuve and Shields
8-team, non keeper league
My team is:
Pitching wise I have verlander, anibal, samardjzia, cain, latos, hughes, and travis wood
you need to accept the trade before the other guy comes to his sense. Altuve is producing in at least 3 categories, and gives you the steals you need. Hosmer is a mystery wrapped in a riddled swaddled in a big cloth diaper smelling more than faintly of...poop. Shields will outpitch Shark. Shark's numbers are not sustainable, not to mention the absolutely HORRIFIC lack of run support for pitchers at Wrigley. Do the trade. You'll than me later.
I wouldn't. Hosmer has been bad and even when he's good like last year, in an 8 team league, you could probably do better than him. I am not a fan of Samardzjia at all. He's due for a correction and you won't want to own him when that comes (which I believe started with his last start if I remember correctly).

I agree with Wraith on this... how is Hosmer on a roster in an 8 team league? The fact that someone is then going to trade for Hosmer in an 8 team league is even more unbelievable. so sure, make the trade, have a ball, but understand this is not competitive fantasy baseball, nor the VERY IMPORTANT TRADE that the title of your post would suggest.
