Not a big AL-only expert but your SP is good enough IMO. Jennings is a big loss for what amounts as an upgrade of SP, Bourjos has PT issues and has upside in steals only. Hope this helps.

Can you help with mine?

do it, if you end up being in bind for an OF you can always trade a pitcher which would be a big strength for you after this deal.

No. Jennings produces across the board, and hitting leadoff in that lineup he's going to score plenty of runs, which is always an underrated stat. He's the best player in the deal.

I'd vote no as well, but this trade is pretty even.

The key here is Stolen bases in an AL only pool. They are much harder to come by than in a mixed league. Jennings is one of the few players that can give you a lot of stolen bases without killing you in another category. He hits HRs and his avg should be ok. He will score a lot of runs and he should get a few more RBIs than your avg leadoff hitter.

Hellickson is good, his ballpark helps him a lot (and hurts Jennings) but his peripherals (K/BB) aren't too great. He could really improve in that area but for now, you got to go with 2011 stats to still base your decisions.

Bourjos is in a bit of danger as an every day player. There's starting to be a lot of pressure on the Angels to score more runs. He's seen as a more defensive outfielder and could lose some playing time.

I think the final decision needs to be based on would you lose more overall from trading jennings than gain from acquiring hellickson.

The main reason i said yes is because of the versatility you would have if you wanted to grab a solid guy somewhere else.

If you dont plan on making any more trades then i would not make this its very close like everybody else has said.

Just depends.
