Since it's a 2 for 1, who would cut or add to your keepers?

I would do it. Youk is the best player, but Gallardo is a stud + Reynolds.

I could get Max Scherzer instead of Yovani, too. I am feeling Yovani more, however.

I like the deal for you. You could use another SP and Youk is sitting on your bench.

I guess I'll be the contrarian here. Youk is EASILY the best player in the deal, and will take over for Prado once Youk regains 3B eligibility. Yovani is good, but it's not like he's a top 10 starter and Reynolds...dear lord, who knows what he'll do this year. Stick with Youk.

Another vote for Youk and I dont see how it even is close.....i think the way you listed your team is a little confusing to people. Your SP is : Josh Johnson, Tommy Hanson, Clay Bucholz, Chris Carpenter and Chad Billingsley.

You don't need pitching. Meanwhile Youk is going to be such a upgrade over prado when he gains his 3B eligibility.

DONT DO IT.

Another for Youk, he'll definitely be in his Util spot until he gets his 3rd eligibility but that's not a big deal.

Your starting pitching is pretty solid, so I would hold onto Youkilis.
