Improving SP by trading Craig pt. Deux

Would like to improve my SP and haven't had any luck. I have tried Strasburg, Waino, MadBum, and Samardzija with no bites---must be too early. Not for this wheeler dealer


I have a couple options on table still. Do you like either?
Thoughts? I'm about to settle for a mediocre staff but thought I'd try to get rid of a health concern and/or a player I cannot stand-Kinsler



Craig for Gio

Or

Kinsler for Cain


Thanks

i'd do kinsler for cain. kinsler often has dirty 20/20 or 30/30s and like, cain is an ace pure and simple. dude handles business.... i think bumgarner will be better than him over time, but he definitely handles his business.

what other options are out there for 2b? if you can get a danny espinosa type or someone who can at least do ~10-15/10-15 to replace kinsler, then yeah i'd definitely do that trade. cain >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> geo every day of the week and an all day orgy on sunday

I'd do Kinsler for Cain if you can get that.....but you need to have a competent second base option....

Like the other guys, I really like Matt Cain and I think the value is pretty good there with Kinsler. Especially if he's a guy you don't particularly like.
