Delmon Young may come assault you if he finds out about this potential trade my friend.

Bump

Any wisdom on this one? Just need an honest assessment either way. I worry that Ethier might go into his post-hot-slump for two months. On the other hand, Avila and Delmon aren't lighting the world on fire (well, Delmon might be in a different way)

I would stand pat....you probably dont have great options to repalce Avila at Catcher...and Ethier will more than likely go into his huuuuge slump.

I should note that I have Jesus Montero who is now catcher eligible.

I think this is a fair trade, but I do not think I would personally do it. Ethier is notorious for having hot April's, and then his splits gradually decrease as the season goes on.

Maybe make the deal, hope he has a hot first week in May, and then flip him? A little risky/crazy though, so again, I think I would not do it.

You're right though...Avila is expendable now that Montero is C eligible--you won't want to roster 2 catchers if you can help it.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

I offered him Avila, Delmon Young and Jarrod Parker for Alex Gordon and Daniel Bard. I know he wants to dump Bard, so we shall see.

Another avenue for my team is to trade Ian Kennedy for Shane Victorino.

I would rather have the Avila +Young for Ethier deal, personally. Ethier is a player that's put up very good numbers before (so his recent streak isn't just some fluky hot streak by a marginal player). I think he could easily be a .290-25-100 guy this year with a chance for more if he stays healthy. Avila's .375 Babip last season helped hide his 28% K rate. He's a solid catcher, but unless he gets lucky again he won't put up those R or RBI numbers and his average won't be a plus either.

Hmm this is a solid point.

Should I try to see if I could pry away Kipnis in this deal?

Avila and Delmon for Ethier and Kipnis?
