Youkilis for Phillips?

Postby sox 06 » Sat Mar 05, 2011 12:20 am

I've been offered Brandon Phillips for Kevin Youkilis. Should I accept or reject?

Close, but i prefer Youk. Boston is going to score 900 runs.
I would try Werth for Phillips.

not very close for me, I'm thinking Phillips has started a decline already. Youk A Gon Pedroia & Crawford might score 900 themselves!

Youk for me. I have them pretty close on my list, but I like Youk in any league where he'll have 3B eligibility relatively quickly. I'm happier with the mid-round 2B options than the 3B equivalents. I'm also a proponent of taking as much power as possible early, which means Youk.

I'd rather have Youk as well. Once he gains that 3B eligibility early on in the season, he'll be even more valuable.

Youk for me too. Not a big Phillips fan. And as previously stated I think he's on the decline.

Can you check mine?

If you can get Cano for Youk, you should go for it. Cano is the top 2B and a first round pick.
