Cherry pie - cherry type question

This year, I've decided to really go outside of the box and make a cherry pie for Thanksgiving. I have a 9" crust and one 21oz can of pie-ready cherries. My dilemma, only realized after returning home: The pie needs 2 cans worth of cherries. Now, I also have a big jar of Maraschino cherries, but they're just in water or something, not the goop that the cans have.

My question: can I put a can's worth of the cocktail cherries into the pie, making it a 50/50 canned/Maraschino mix? Will that be disastrous? Do I need to push through the lazy to go buy another can? Is this even an issue?

Thank you very very much for your wisdom. Sorry if this is a bit of a ridiculous question :)

I would go buy another can of pie cherries, too risky to mess up Thanksgiving dessert.
