I don't like it. I think McCutchen is the best player in the deal and I don't think Jennings will make up for his loss. It's not a bad deal especially if you think Jennings will have a good year but if it were me, I wouldn't do it.

It's close, but I'd probably pass. You're giving up arguably the two best players in the deal, and that's a no-no for me. Feliz's production is also a somewhat unknown as he moves into the rotation. I like Gallardo, and I would put him on par with Hamels, but I'd still pass. Good luck.

In my opinion you'd be giving up two studs for 3 players who are not studs, and most likely will never be studs. It doesn't seem to be a keeper, so that last fact doesn't matter as much though.

But yeah, you'd be downgrading everywhere. The only reason to do the trade would be if you felt your team was so deprived of talent that you had to bring back multiple pieces for studs, and that isn't really the case either.



So, no.

I think you are giving up the 2 best players, and I don't like those deals.

While I do like Jennings, McCutch is better and safer. I also like Hamels over Gallardo. I'd pass on this deal.
