Is this trade worth King Felix?

Felix Hernandez in pinstripes? This has come up many times over the last few years but every time Yankee fans start to get excited it dies quickly. If the Yankees were to make a deal, this is probably what it would look like according to ESPN's Jim Bowden: Yankees Acquire RHP Felix Hernandez Mariners Acquire RHP Ivan Nova, C Jesus Montero, RHP Dellin Betances.

During the Winter Meetings, Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik said he would not trade Hernandez but a big deal like this could really help Seattle become contenders. Nova and Betances would fit well into an already young Mariners rotation while Montero would give them a solid bat in the middle of their order for years to come.

*HERE'S THE KICKER* Not only would it be amazing if the Yankees acquired Hernandez to go behind C.C. Sabathia in their rotation, but all the money saved on Hernandez could give the Yankees the opportunity to go after Price Fielder and absolutely solidify a championship team.
