Another question you'll face is: Which one will be more widely sought after in your draft? If someone is desperate for a 1B keeper Hosmer would be mighty tempting whereas Willingham has far more mileage and is more of a question mark with each passing season than the 23 year old.
I don't know if Hosmer will ever settle in to the point where he's knocking in close to 40 HR's. I think his swing will produce less HR's (thinking 25-30 consistently) and more doubles, but the 100 RBI's sounds spot on.
