Yeah I like that deal for you, as long as you're a believer in Lester.

I would pass. It isn't a bad deal and I can see the arguement for it but I wouldn't. Your MI is fine now. Cano vs. Choo gets you around 10 HR, 30 RBI, 20 points of BA and - 20 SB.
The BA probably hurts the most but I think you can use the SB and I like Darvish a lot more than Lester.

My take is this: I'd take the deal if you're willing to keep on trading/digging. That's a super solid hitting lineup and Lester does have some nice bounce back potential. If it were me, I'd take the deal (you have to take Cano even with that depleted Yankees lineup, which I think is why the other guys is willing to sell) and then wheel and deal to get a solid pitcher back.

If Lester continues to impress in the next start or two I'd try to package him with either Hosmer, Pence or Altuve (or some combination) to get a great pitcher back. Worse comes to worse, you can trade Felix and Lester for two very good pitchers (both better than Lester and less than King Felix) and then try to upgrade one of them to an Elite SP with the above method.

Point it, if you were going to sit on your roster after the trade, I'd advise against making the deal. If you still have a head of steam and are going to keep going until you ge tthat solid second SP, keep on going, lol.

Good luck!

Like a few others have stated and I agree really comes down to your believe Lester/whether you think you can get a good deal trading him. However given Darvish's potential and already his first great outing not sure if I would want to trade him. Another thing is that you are not exactly hurting in the infield right now with your current players so not a huge need in that sense.
