Call me crazy but I probably wouldn't do this trade. I think Manny is a top-notch OF and will be missed if you trade him. Dustin is a great 2B, but if Kendrick can stay healthy, he produce similar numbers. Obviously Dustin will get more RBI and Runs because where he hits, but I think Kendrick will be a good player this year. I'm not uber high on Bruce, so it might influence my factor in this deal.
If I look at this at a draft position value-wise. You should take it. Dustin and Manny go at the same round while Bruce is drafted much higher than RJ. I just think you don't need to make this deal since Kendrick is a pretty good 2B.
