I would do it aswell, your infield will be solid except for like Andrus (who I have and not happy with lol). But apparently Encarnacions suppose to have a breakout year according to the "experts".. just saying (this coming from a jays fan).

In a one year league I think that's a solid deal for you. Youk represents a huge upgrade over Encanarcion.

I would take the trade. Heyward is going to put up good numbers, but I think Youk is going to have a better year.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=425205

Oh hell yeah I'd definitely jump on that one and run with it.... while Heyward is definitely an up-and-coming talent, he's in the outfield and Youk is goung to be 1B/3B this season so he can back up Adrian Gonzalez should his shoulder act up.

I like Heyward just fine, but he didn't exactly set the statistical world on fire last year. Sure he will improve, but I think you risk that here, even though Youk often starts off quite hot and slows down some, it sure looked like he was going to have one of, if not his best years overall before the injury knocked him out. You gotta give up quality for quality!

Don't sleep on Edwin Encarnacion either... if he can handle the DH role unlike Adam Lind of last year, the guy showed that he caN be a OMFG streak player... he can go and hit like 6 homeruns in 6 days or 5 in 4 days... and he tends to come in clusters. i've got the end of the bench open for a guy who i can toss in there for a few games and maybe a few times he ends up going off, or every now and then one of them turns into jose bautista =D
