I like this deal for you. Tulo is a large upgrade over Andrus, obviously, and I prefer him as a first round talent to Braun since SS is so thin. You've got a great replacement for Braun with Crawford, and I'm sure you can find a decent player to fit into your final utility spot.

On the pitching front, you need some help to go along with Price and Hamels, so the addition of Cain will really benefit you here.

I would do it. Not a big fan of Andrus.

I don't like the Tex/Holliday angle. I'd prefer the original deal and wouldn't do that 2nd deal.

I prefer the first deal but I would be fine with the second deal. I don't see a big difference between Tex and Holliday.

My problem with this one is the fact that you'd have problems at first base after this trade, and you really have no need to pick up another outfielder... So I'd say to go with the second.
