Yes, you should.
I still suspect Vlad is more seriously hurt than they are letting on. There are three types of shoulder separation, and as a rule none is more painful than another. However, they range from minor injuries to possibly career-changing. Until MRI's come back, nobody knows. Once they do come back, it'll be too late if it's a second or third degree.
Helton is going to get back to a top 15 player. If you can make good use of Guillen in the OF, I say go for it.
Well that's the thing, my hitting is really strong...even without Vlad.

Guillen is the real hold up here. I don't really need him, but the owner seems to want to pawn him off for almost nothing. But I just can't see myself trading for someone who's going to ride on my bench most of the time. As it is, if I get Helton, I'll have to bench Morneau.
