Hello
In a 5x5 yahoo roto team. Consider this trade:

Give: Cliff Lee
Get: Kevin Youkillis, Adam Jones

My current roster is:

1B: Miguel Cabrera
2B: Ian Kinsler
3B: Mark Reynolds
SS: Alexei Ramirez
OF: Jeff Francoeur
OF: Carlos Gonzalez
OF: Josh Hamilton
Util: Bobby Abreu
Util: Logan Morrison
BN: Chipper Jones

SP: Cliff Lee
SP: Max Scherzer
RP: Huston Street
RP: Brian Wilson
P: Jon Rauch

Do I make the trade and try to shop for an elite SP? Any comments are appreciated!

I don't think I would do this. You have little depth at SP and doing this trade would really hurt. Not sure what you would then move to get a elite SP. Reynolds is not Youk at 3B but he should be fine and I wouldn't trade away the best SP you have to replace him.

Agreed..... I love getting top bats for pitchers, but your pitching staff can't take that hit.

This is a tough one, Youk is a huge upgrade at 3rd for you and Jones is having a great year. I would see if you could take jones out of the deal and add a mid SP instead. Who does he have?
