Yeah if you could get a little sweetner on top that would work in my opinion.

Well you mentioned Kipnis. Maybe include him in the deal. Who's the guy's current C? If he's half-decent maybe include him? Or see if he's got a next-in-line closer type that you really like (M Adams, K Jansen, etc).

Here's his team... as you can see, rather unsexy but sneaky good and highly productive. Ideas? He has caught onto Delmon Young btw, so might be tougher to move him. But we shall see.

I would make the deal if it included Ethier, but not Gordon.

Well with the Delmon news maybe you just try to trade them straight up for Ethier? Waiting longer might cost a chance of Delmon having any value (if the hate-crime stuff goes viral he might get a pretty big suspension?)

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

Avila and Delmon for Ethier and Kipnis?

I think it would be better to try it than not try it. I prefer Ethier to Young and Avila but if you can get more than absolutely do it.

Given this, yep. Your catching depth was my only hesitation, but Montero might very well outplay Avila.
