What should i do ..?

NEED A HITTER AND A FRIEND NEEDS A GOOD STARTING PITCHER:

here goes the run down ,,

MY PITCHERS :

Verlander, Kershaw, Greinke, Cain, Murrow, Beachy, Leubke

i have a excellent starting pitching staff as you can see..

I need a little hitting ,,,so he has offered me kevin youkilis.....which i actually really like....

So ,, he told me to send the trade proposal....for youkilis as long as it was for GREINKE OR CAIN.

WHO SOULD I GIVE HIM OR IS LESS OF A FANTASY STAT MACHINE...??

GREINKE HAD EXCELLENT OUTING LAST NIGHT CAIN IS PITCHING TODAY AND HAS GIVEN UP A FEW RUNS ALREADY .. WHO SHOULD I GIVE HIM BEING THAT I HAVE TONS OF PITCHING . IM OK IF I GET RID OF ONE OF THEM,..WHO SHOULD IT BE?

Greinke will have a better year than Cain IMO ... Cain got paid, he may have a down year. I wouldn't trade either for Youk thou, guys always hurt, you will be lucky to get 120 games from him.

Youk is a beast when he plays but he is below the 135 game mark when it comes to starters. I think Leubke is comparable based upon time the Youks will miss and the upside of Leubke playing in Petco. Depending if it is head to head points or roto, I would offer him for the points league but really hold the fort if roto due to whip, era, inns and wins being 4 solids for Leubke. If he spiced the deal then I would look to deal Cain before Greinke as I agree with Hots and that Cain will prob have down year.

Who are your other hitters and who is available on the wire. Those are the deciding factors as to either trade or stand pat.

PEACE

No shot id do Youk for either of those. Unless you are putting Youk at 3rd, he's lower tier as far as 1B goes. Youk has no upside either.

I would not even consider the first 4 you listed straight up for Youk ....I think it you give up a quality starter you should get at bats,hits, doubles,triples,Home Runs and Stolen Bases and RBIs. I do not think for Youk you will get enough. Good luck which ever way you go.
