I think you can get better than Cain, even though I really like Cain. The problem with Cain is that he NEVER gets the run support whenever he pitches it seems like. I'd try to go for Kershaw or Verlander for Harper and Sanchez or Nova.

How many do you keep?
Would Cain or Harper be keepers?
Harper isn't going to crack your top 3, unless he can be your UT.

What can he get that's better than Cain in a 1 for 1?

Cain is a top 5-7 SP in keeper formats.

I'm not saying to make the trade for sure, I'm just curious what you think he could get.

I ended up trading Harper for Latos, if that helps at all in the type of players you can acquire. You gotta find someone that loves the hype! Anyway, I would maybe hold onto Harper rather Cain especially in a keeper league. And your pitching is studly! Hold Harper

I think this might be shooting for the stars a little bit...

Harper for Latos was a solid trade. I do think you could have done better if you find someone who is in love with the story (i actually just traded him and Joe Nathan for CarGo.) Latos is solid, Cain is solid, either way you had an overload at OF so you're good to go.

if you can win this year, you take Cain.

You might be able to trade Harper for more especially to a team rebuilding but that would take more time, showcasing Harper, and might miss out on a deal of this level
