No, keep Cano because he is the best 2nd baseman with relatively no competition and i have Ike Davis as one of my sleepers this year, so i believe that cano and davis together will be better than Kendrick and Gonzalez

I'm probably in the minority about this but I would do it. I think Cano = Gonzo and I would much rather have Kendrick than Ike Davis

I agree with Silverz, Much rather have AGon and Kendrick than Cano and Davis. I think Davis is way overrated.

Gonzalez was in his first year in fenway and in the AL in general, and was also injured for most of the year...AND STILL PUT UP THE NUMBERS THAT HE DID.

I think Gonzo finishes the year in the top 5 on the player rater, and will beat out either Miggy or Pujols to be one of the top 2 first baseman. I'm high on him this year.

I'm also high on Howie Kendrick batting ahead of Pujols in that lineup. I think Kendrick will put together a very nice campaign this year, and will fill out all categories respectably (he could go for 15-15).

Not that Cano and Davis are bad, it's just that I think there's more value in Gonzo/Kendrick.

I am fine with the deal. I could see either side. I would probably lean towards AGone but it's close.
