I think he rejects Lynn for Hosmer and possibly is insulted, but you can try.
I think Darvish for Hosmer is fair. I also think I'd be finding a way to trade Darvish before it heats up in Dallas. Very few pitchers can pull off pitching well in an AL hitter park.
That said I don't think you need Hosmer bad enough to pay the price to acquire him with Crawford/Longoria on DL and Young/Craig as replacements.
Lynn for Hosmer is not an insult right now, especially considering that the guy has had him on his bench the last 3 weeks and is getting beaten down h2h in pitching categories. Hosmer is a luxury for him right now and Hos looks completely lost at the plate.
It's about timing. Right now offering him Lynn for Hosmer is no insult.
I don't believe Darvish for Hosmer is fair right now. CJ Wilson did just fine in the heat of Dallas. I don't know why Yu could not.
I don't need Hosmer at all, but believe he could find his groove back and become solid....which opens the door to trades. Lynn has begun regressing and will continue to do so I'm afraid.
