Question: Cano for King Felix?
I'm not saying that this is a likely scenario, and there has been no talks of any such deal, but if Seattle approached the Yankees and wanted to trade King Felix for Robinson Cano, straight up, would you do it? Or what if the pitcher in question is Roy Halladay? Would you pull the trigger on that deal? The free agent market is pretty good for second baseman, or shortstops who can be converted to second base, and that list includes such candidates as Orlando Hudson, Felipe Lopez, or Placido Polanco. Maybe even a guy like Marco Scutaro for a year wouldn't be bad, or Mark Derosa who I think would be a great fit could fill in. The point is, there are plenty of second base options even if we don't fully recover Cano's bat. That being said, if it lands us an elite pitcher, would you pull the trigger?
