Fielder side win IMO. Fielder is the best player in the trade. I just don't think the other side has enough for me to want to do it. Not sold that Konerko will continue his comeback tour and Bourn might not repeat those numbers again.

I've been on the fence, but I think the Felix side may have slight edge. I'm not high on Bourn whatsoever, but I feel as if Konerko can put up similar numbers to last year. But I'm also assuming Felix's ERA drops under 3 again.

I wouldn't do it.
Not a fan of Crisp.
B Wilson scares me with his injuries.
You can't afford to lose Felix.
Konerko should be good for 25/90.

It's CJ Wilson.

I'm not crazy about Crisp either, but I don't feel like he's a huge downgrade of Bourn. 25/90 is what I expect from Pauly as well, but Prince's RBI potential makes me super excited.

CJ makes it closer, but i like Felix side.
I think Bourn steals 60.

I think Bourn's BA is bound to regress along with those 722 PA, which wont give him the opportunity to steal 60.

His BA will regress some true, do to his babip last year.
But he ran more once he got to Atlanta.
60 might be a little high, but ZIPS has him for 56.

I'm not saying 50 is out of the question or anything, but I think he'll end up with only ~5 more SB than Crisp. I don't know how much I trust ZIPS, I believe they have Altuve projected to be worth $20.
