I've been offered a trade: my Edwin Jackson for his Adam Jones. I really like Jackson; he's the real deal. I've been wanting a better CF, however, my pitching has been a big part of my 2nd place position and only 1 game out of first. Adam Jones has really cooled off lately, which worries me down the stretch. ****I was thinking of dropping Chris Davis to pick up Franklin Gutierrez, but he just got injured, so I don't know how serious that is. If I get Gutierrez, I won't need Adam Jones. Scott Hairston is also available.
12 team, H2H, no keeper league. Check out my team please and let me know what you think I should do. FYI, the guy offering the trade is in 1st place.

I like this for you. Your staff is strong enough to cover the loss of Jackson. I think Jones is the real deal, but the "fluid on the knees" does worry me a bit. That being said, I'd still pull the trigger on this since you have the pitching depth.
I was actually kinda leaning towards saying no, but after looking at your staff.. yeah, you can part with Jackson. Though, I would still look at dropping Davis. Non-keeper league, no real reason to keep hanging on to him.
