As you can see my pitching has been pretty incredible. But my hitting has been amazing thus far too. And I honestly think Choo or Werth can fill my 3rd OF slot admirably. And it would be an opportunity to trade Jones when his value is high.
I understand where you're coming from, but I don't think Jones will regress that much. My money's on him ending up with better overall stats then Markakis which would make him late 2nd/early 3rd rounder. That said, is Shields really selling high? If you want to upgrade your pitching (I don't think you need to) target one of the big guns. Jones/Johnson or Billingsley or Santana...or something like that.
you can get a better pitcher for jones in my opinion. your pitching is really solid. getting a better 1B is a good plan i think. what about packaging nick johnson and adam jones for a prince fielder? i like morneau better, but i'm not sure you could get him. adam jones' value is really high though, so it can't hurt to try.
