I like both of the trades (Cain over Darvish, easy).

I would lean towards the second trade. Two high ranking pitchers for this year and a 5 tool threat for your guys is a pretty good exchange. If one says that Kershaw and Halladay are a wash, then Sale/Kemp should make more of a difference than Jeter/Howard/Morse.

You don't really need Kemp's speed factor as much with Ellsbury back, so I could also understand if you wanted to go smaller with the first trade.

I think both are wishful thinking. Unless trade one is indeed that big of a homer to make the trade. If so, go with Cain over Darvish.

I like the second trade much better, but again, I think its wishful thinking.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=450876

The second trade is never going to happen. Offer it, but don't expect anything.

First trade, I'd say for argument's sake that Halladay is about equal to Cain. Jeter/Howard for M-Cab is an absolute ripoff. Once again, offer the deal, but truly I wouldn't expect much. Maybe you'll get a good counter out of one of the deals, and still come out a bit on top.
