Even if Ellsbury repeats, i think he regresses some, it's still a steal.

What if its Youkilis or Brandon Phillips instead of Holliday?

Nope. I'd rather hold onto Ellsbury in this scenario.

The Cliff Lee and Holiday trade I jump all over. I am a little more hesitant getting back Brandon Phillips.

I like Ellsbury, but think he is being slightly overvalued, so I would have no problem moving him for a nice haul like Lee and Holliday.

I would definitely do it if I can get Holliday. But I wouldn't do it for Phillips and especially not for Youk.
