Jannsen probably won't keep the job, should I would evaluate the trade as if he weren't part of the equation. Then, it becomes a question of which is more valuable between closers and starters in your league. I'm always fond of trading closers because that position is so volatile and new ones pop up all the time.

I think I would take this, I worry about Sale with the flip flopping and the elbow barking.

I think betancourt is safer than Jansen but betancourt has blown his opportunity before and if he were to falter colorado has other options.

Long term I think upgrading to latos is worth it, even with his sluggish start
