I agree with you here. I think your team is better off without the deal. FWIW I saw some mention Jones being the OF relegated to the bench if you got Bautista but I'm not so sure I wouldn't bench Ethier instead? In any event I see your lineup as stronger with Tulo Jones and Ethier starting than I do with Yunel Bautista and either Jones or Ethier.
Yeah, I'm leaning against it. Jones wouldn't be benched for me, it would probably be Ethier at first, and then Bonifacio if his hot streak ends. Truth be told, Ethier is on my bench right now anyway in favor of C-Lee, who has been playing great lately.
I just hate having to scramble for MIs and since this is a keeper, I'd just feel so much better about having Tulo locked up for the future. I mean, if I knew this trade would guarantee victory this year then fine, but I don't know if it really improves my chances THAT much, and I'd be much more comfortable having Tulo as my keeper for next year. But more opinions won't hurt, if anyone else would like to chime in.
