The team giving up Felix has the following Farm pitchers:

Felix Hernandez
Zach Duke
Jered Weaver
Greg Miller
Edison Voloquez
Bobby Jenks
Chris Lambert

Any thoughts on this? Felix is Felix, obviously, but Cain and Dank are two of the top pitching prospects and want to know if either has what it takes to be dominate, like people believe Felix will be.

Not sure about Dank but Cain is suppose to be the next best SP after Felix--but he's had some problems recently although he seemed to be back on track.

For me it's a no brainer--I'd take Felix over having both of them.

For prospects, as with other trades, my opinion is that I'd rather have 1 stud vs. 2 very good guys. So, I will always prefer the side that is getting the best player - and Felix is the best. So Team B.

i am high on danks, but i would still prefer to take felix over the both of them.... but i would not holler if i saw the trade go through in my keeper either though,,,, as danks and cain both have the chance to be very solid starting pitchers for many years.....

Even more with prospects. getting a mediocre prospect is like getting Ellis Burks.

you never know, Felix could become the next Ryan Anderson, or Gooden pre-coke :-/ whilst Cain could become the next Oswalt or the next Ainsworth...
but if you are acquiring Felix you accept now and smile..it's a good offer that could go either way, the old quantity versus quality argument
