Trade Youkilis for Reynolds/I. Kennedy?

–1 vote

I've been sitting on Youkilis all year. Do you think Reynolds/I. Kennedy is a good enough return to send Youkilis? I’m inclined to at least give Youk to the ASB to see how he adjusts to his new surrounds, but even if he’s good I’m not sure the diff b/w them is Kennedy. This seems like a lot of good value coming back for the uncertainty of Youkilis.

However, my staff is already quite deep (Verlander, Strasburg, Haren, Cliff Lee, Gallardo, Kuroda) and we have a 200 GS limit. I’d probably drop Parnell (who’s my 5th closer behind Bell, Reed, Clippard, Janssen) if I made the deal. Tied for first in Saves.

10-team Roto w/ OPS, K/9, QS added. How do you view this? Many thanks!

If you've stuck with Youk so far, I'd keep him. I'm not a huge Kennedy fan though. He is a fly ball pitcher in Arizona. Every year as a D-back his HR% has been above average.

Stick with Youk.
