I like it for you, i think Sizemore will continue to be better then McCutchen, especially if you need more power. Buehrle isn't that huge a dropoff from Porcello for this season, you have a good pitching staff already.
I do like this deal - I worry a bit about the pitcher swap in a keeper as I like Porcello and am not high on Buehrle repeating last year, but I think Sizemore is a big addtion so I'd do it. Just see if you can do some finagling on the pitchers before you say yes.
If you only keep six players, I have a hard time seeing how any of the players involved in the trade could be a potential keeper (maybe Sizemore if he regains his form, but you have Pujols, Utley, Arod, Halladay, Greinke, and CC...). Oh, and I would pull the trigger on the deal without a doubt.
Sizemore and Buehrle all the way for me. You're also getting Sizemore at a discount based on his production last year due to injury. He should be over that now and this deal will look great later on IMO.
