Your OF is probably your weakest point relying on two low AVG guys in BJ Upton and Austin Jackson (who is basically a poor mans BJ Upton in my opinion). In saying this, I think you throw out Deal A because you're already slim on OF's and Kennedy isn't a major upgrade from Romero in my opinion.
Deal B seems legit, because you very likely strengthen your OF while acquiring two closers. Mark Buerhle will hold very little fantasy value this season because his K rates are so low. So deal B is basically Romero and Cain (who has a lot of upside but not nearly as much as Jennings) for Jennings and 2 closers. So if i was to make either of these deals I'd take Deal B, though I don't think it's a total slam dunk either, making deals for closers this early can definitely backfire.
