Bad trade.

For you to win I would think instead of getting jennings you get bourn. But, I don't think he would go for that. Your team is already twice as good as his. I think you would still win for your situation if you did

Lee + Cano
for
Bourn + Pedroia + Jennings

I don't really like this trade. However you might want to look for another deal. I think you could use an upgrade in the outfield, and your pitching looks strong.

I think that this is a GREAT trade for you. Your team is severely lacking in the stolen base department, which both Jennings and Pedroia will help you with. I actually like Pedroia more than Cano straight up this season (and I am from NYC).

Bourn may be a stolen base machine, but Jennings stole 20 bases within the last 2 months of the season. Plus, Jennings has the kind of power that Bourn doesn't. PLUS the fact that your in a keeper league, and Jennings could very well be an up and coming star.

In other words, Jennings and Bourn are not even in the same hemisphere (IMO)

I wouldn't do it as i like Cano over Pedroia, and Cain by quite a bit over Jennings.
I would look to move a C, since you have 2 in your lineup.
Jennings career high was 12 hrs in the minors.
He projects to 10-12.
You do need speed, but i'm not overpaying to get it.

You guys, I'm an idiot and confused the settings with another league. SORRY...

The real settings are: yahoo, 12 teams, roto, redraft, 5X5.... thanks. Any other thoughts considering the different settings?? :-]

I agree with this. I don't like Jennings this much. I need to see more from him before I am giving up a pitcher like Cain for him.

You lose this trade.

If you want to acquire Jennings and Pedrioa offer Cano and Jurrjens, although not sure they would accept that.

I say hang onto both Cano and Cain Honestly.
