Would you do this deal (Proposed on ESPN)?

David Schoenfield posted on ESPN over the weekend his "Black Friday Deals" and one of them involved the Ms

http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/post/_/id/30979/five-blockbuster-trade-suggestions

Arizona Diamondbacks trade RF Justin Upton and RHP Trevor Bauer and receive SS Asdrubal Cabrera, RHP Vinnie Pestano and OF Michael Saunders


Cleveland Indians trade SS Asdrubal Cabrera, OF Shin-Soo Choo and RHP Vinnie Pestano and receive RHP Trevor Bauer, LHP Danny Hultzen and RHP Hector Noesi

Seattle Mariners trade LHP Danny Hultzen, OF Michael Saunders and RHP Hector Noesi and receive RF Justin Upton and OF Shin-Soo Choo

Lets focus on the Mariners part, because that's all I really care about

I personally would do this trade in a heartbeat, as getting not 1, but 2 middle of the order bats would allow the Ms to raise the offensive numbers, and we still keep 2/3 heads, which is also important.

Here is the proposed lineup after this trade

LF Choo
2B Dustin Ackley
C John Jaso
RF Upton
3B Kyle Seager
DH Jesus Montero
1B Justin Smoak/free agent
CF Franklin Gutierrez
SS Brendan Ryan

This is a good lineup, and if we just so happen to sign Swisher to play 1B, it is an above average lineup, and we keep a large amount of our farm team depth.
