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.

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.

I guess it really depended upon whether or not your have a MI or UT spot to fill and who you just bumped from that spot as well. Overall value, I think that you win this though.

Go ahead and pull the trigger. Guerra may be nothing by June 1 as I believe Jansen will be the closer and never look back.
