Am I crazy not to accept this? Victorino for Bruce.

14 team keeper h2h points league keeper (forfeit draft round for keepers)

he's offering Victorino and Masterson for Bruce and Parra.
i haven't declined, but i'm leaning toward it, here are my reasons: Victorino was taken in the 5th round, Bruce in the 8th. Victorino, in my opinion is at or near his ceiling and may be worth a 4th round pick in the future, but not much more than that. Bruce on the other hand has a good chance of being worth more than an 8th round pick next year. Also in this weekly points league Parra is a lot more valuable than Masterson unless two or three red sox starters get hurt ahead of him.

my team:

C - Shoppach
1B - Votto
2B - Kinsler
3B - Davis
SS - Reyes
OF - B.J. Upton
OF - Quentin
OF - Bruce
UT - Justin Upton

B - Wieters
B - D. Murphy (mets)
B - F. Lewis

SP - Shields
SP - Vasquez
SP - Bedard
SP - Harang
SP - Zimmerman
RP - Parra
RP - Morrow
RP - Wellemeyer

B - Wandy Rodriguez
B - Jorge De La Rosa

I know Grey is in love with the Flyin' Hawaiian and will likely say I'm nuts, and I obviously think I might be, or I wouldn't be posting. Talk me down?

No, I think you're right on. I want Bruce and Parra.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
