I would probably do it but I don't think it is a slam dunk. Beltre is easily the best player in this deal and Lawrie and Youk are far from sure things this year. But Lawrie has a ton of upside and Youk could bounce back to his old self. So I would probably make the deal.

yeah i did it, i like Lawrie a lot this year, i picked him up in all my leagues last year, im a sox fan, Youk is in a contract year, engaged to Tom Bradys sister this off season, i think hell bounce back
I agree that you make this deal. Even if it is a slight drop from Beltre to Youk, getting Lawrie at a relatively low cost makes it a good deal. And if Youk comes back strong, which is a good possibility, it makes it an even better deal for you.
