I would do that. You're getting 2 elite closers and a great 2B w/ huge upside basically for a good OF. It's all about position scarcity. I'd pull the trigger.

Depends on how deep you are at OF and your current 2B situation.

I could go either way on this one. I feel Choo is the most productive/consistent player in the trade, but a healthy Kinsler is the more valuable. I feel Cahill is in for a little bit of a regression (peripheral numbers), Lidge is not great, Zobrist was better in 2009. Wilson and Marmol are rock solid closers, but I'm apprehensive in depending on closers in a keeper unless they are of the Rivera/Soria mold. Remember Broxton last year?

If your OF is already solid, do the trade. If your OF is week, don't do it.

How do you rank 'em? viewforum.php?f=26
