Not a chance. Stanton is not having the season most thought he would have (at least not yet) so he should be more of a buy low than giving up a top 5 OF. Greinke is nice but too many questions about what kind of year he will have plus who knows when is actually going to pitch. He still needs to fully heal and then get up to speed after missing all spring training. Not something I would want to worry about.

I think you can get a better hitter/pitcher combo than Greinke and Stanton.

How many do you keep?
If you can keep both, then yes.
