Here's what my "kept" roster will look like without the trade:

C Napoli

1B Youkilis
2B Uggla
SS Drew
3B Wright
2B/SS A. Cabrera
1B/3B Butler
OF Crawford
OF Cuddyer
OF A. Jackson
OF Coghlan
OF Colvin

P Sabathia
P Jimenez
P Danks
P Broxton
P Bard
P Meek
P De La Rosa
P A. Sanchez
P Floyd
P Shields
T-Ball Trainer

You'd be trading quality for quantity. Not typically a good idea in a 12 team league.

I'd pass on the deal... not enough value in return for Youk, who will be quite a commodity when he adds 3B eligibility early on in the season.

No. Youk is a top option at 3B and you should look to acquire similar talent. Phillips is a serviceable 2B but Putz is a low tier closer. You can do better than this.
