I'm leaning towards no, but Longoria is a GREAT hitter and Phillips is a decent backup to Cano if I lose him.

Any ideas?

I think it's pretty even, honestly. I'd lean towards making the deal since I feel the difference between Longo and A-Ram is greater than the difference between Cano and Phillips. You've got good options to slide into the OF to replace Upton as well.

I'd make the trade. I'd say Longoria is the best player in the deal and Phillips is not too terrible of a downgrade from Cano to slide in at 2B.

That is some good advice, I think I may do the trade.
