I'd hold on to what I have.

Pujols and Zobrist are going to give you 190/65/190/25/.285
Cano and Fielder are going to give you 190/65/190/6/.295

So are you really getting that much better. You need steals as Jennings is your only steals guys (unless Gentry gets more PT, which I don't see if Texas stays healthy).

You lose your most reliable pitcher to pick up a guy who was projected for about 15 homers at the beginning of the year. Don't get caught buying to high on Cespedes this early.

I dont know about this deal... cano and fielder are nice, but very similar to zobrist/pujols. cespedes is unproven in the mlb as of yet. he's hot now, but who knows over the season. CC is really your ace and you'd be giving him up for a projections.

CC is a stud. Cespedes is suppose to be a stud.

No deal.

I don't think you have the pitching to pull the trigger. I would pass.

I like the deal but losing CC is going to be really rough. So while I think you get two of the three best players, I think I would pass. Unless you think you can find SP somewhere else without creating a bigger hole.

I love all three of the guys you'd get but dang, you can't afford to lose CC, with the information we have on your team and league.

Should I counter with one of my other starters? If so, who would you offer?
