Would you make this trade????WHIR!!!!

Hi all,
The trade would be: I would get Kevin Youkilis
They would get: Ian Kennedy and Jay Bruce
Well, I am currently sitting in 4th place and have made a nice push the last 10 days or so and I am trying to continue my run towards the top.
It is a 10 team roto league with the following categories:
2b, 3b, HR, RBI, SB, K's, AVG., Errors, R's, BB

I have been wheeling and dealing all season and right now I have an excess of SP. I am currently 34 innings over the limit so moving a pitcher is what I am trying to do.
My current team looks like this
C-Victor Martinez
1B-Prince Fielder
2b-Dustin Pedroia
SS-Hanley Ramirez
3B-Jose Bautista
OF-Carl Crawford
OF-Ryan Braun
OF-Andrew McCutchins
Util-Emelio Bonafacio
Util-Nick Markakis
Bench-Jay Bruce

SP-Tim Lincecum
SP-Tommie Hanson
RP-Leo Nunez
RP-John Axford
P-Andrew Bailey
P-Brandon League
P-Zack Grienke
Bench-Johnny Queto
Bench-Ian Kennedy
Bench-Daniel Hudson
Bench-James Shields

So, I know this is kinda long, but what do you think? I would probably pick up either Freddie Freeman or Jason Heyward because I could use some HR and RBI help. As always, I will help in return.

I would swap Kennedy for Greinke and see if he bites.

So Bruce and Grienke for Youk. :-)

I own Bruce and he is frustrating. One good month. I'd do the trade...but like the previous posters idea as well

Definitely do that deal and grab Freeman for sure!
Then you'll have Bonafacio a good utility bat for speed and offdays/injuries.
Freeman insurance for utility and 1b

I'd do this as well. and to be honest, I'm sure who I like more, Grienke or Kennedy. while Kennedy looks to be having the better season, Grienke's been throwing great lately.

either way I'd do it...especially with your sit on the innings cap

thanks for the help with mine
