Way Way too much. Adam Jones is having an awesome year but you are paying for him like he's been doing it for 5 years. Jennings could produce very similar value to Jones as soon as he returns, and adding in all the rest of the pieces just doesn't make sense. Take out Jennings, and I'd do it, though I doubt he would unless he really loves steals.

I don't think I would do it but if you add another player on his side, then it becomes a lot closer. I understand what you are doing though. Saying all that, I am not sure he would do that deal. The only player probably worth keeping is Jennings and he would probably rather keep Jones. If he is rebuilding, then you need to give him something to rebuild with and outside of Jennings none of the players are really rebuilding types.

No way I do that. That is way too much to give up for Jones. Especially in a keeper. Jennings has immense potential and Upton has his value too. I would certainly try to sell high on Zambrano though if you can.

Thanks for the help on mine.
