I just got offered this trade.

I give up: Kevin Youkilis

I get: Jimmy Rollins and Alfonso Soriano

Obviously Rollins and Soriano are having awful years, but will it last?

And no I do not need to here from Red Sox fans on how Kevin Youkilis is the best 1B in the league.

Also, I have Longoria, Atkins, and Reynolds who could play the corners.

Who are your OFs and SSs?

at first glance, i really like that trade for you. Chances are 1 of them will turn things around and you may get lucky and see both of them turn things around. Plus you got evan who can take Youk's spot.

Who are your OFs and SSs?

My shortstop is Jose Reyes, and I have Gordon Beckham playing while Reyes is on the DL.

My outfielders are Sizemore, Granderson, Choo, Beltran-DL, Quentin-DL.

So this trade would really only help me until my players get healthy. Because Reyes>Rollins and all my outfielders besides Choo are probably all better than Soriano this year.

It depends on what you wanna do. By the time those guys your trading for come around Quentin, Beltran and Reyes may be on their way back and then your overloaded at 2 different positions. Not a bad problem to have and you can always make another trade to upgrade somewhere else. It's risky, but I say do it.

I ended up rejecting this trade and going with another.

The trade I accepted was:

I give up: Youkilis, Bedard

I get: Paplebon, Cliff Lee

Paplebon and Lee are safer bets than Soriano and Rollins. And I needed pitching, especially a top closer.

Thanks for the input.
