Guess it sort of depends on who you'd have left at 1B. All things being equal, I would probably do this trade. There are enough decent 1B to make up for what will be lost with Ryan.

You have plethora of 1B.... I like the value of Cano and what he brings. Even with Kinsler, Cano has best value. I'd do it.

Looking at the 1B's you have, I would do this trade in a heartbeat. Is this a 6 team league?

Howard is solid, but Cano is the best second baseman in the league and a first rounder. I'd make the deal in a heartbeat.

I did it, thanks for the help. Everyone said to do it so i had no choice. my only consern is that Howard has more power, but cano will have a hiogher average their numbers should be similar.

No buyers remorse for that one, yo! Kinsler will get hurt at some point this season, and you'll be sitting pretty. Add to that Howards (G-d love him) propensity to lose numbers as his career progresses and you made an awesome move. Nice trade!
