I'd keep Ethier here. I am not a big fan of CJ. I think you could get more for the way Ethier has started.

please help

I think CJ will be fine..Ethier can drop off at any time. See if you can bump him a little (like throw in a 2nd body or 2-2) but if not I'd be fine with this.

Help?

Well.... day one of this week, every offensive player I have is slumping EXCEPT Ethier who had to hits and blasted his 9th HR. I don't think that I can trade him at this point, the season is rolling along and he's still very productive.

When Ethier was 2nd in the league in rbi's and McCutchen was slumping I sold high and got him straight up.. You can get better for Ethier before he cools off.

Id try to get a 2for2 deal from him or see what other SP's you deem better than Wilson before pulling the trigger.

That said it is a fair deal, so if you decide your team needs pitching help I would do it.

Don't believe it, Ethier will fall off. CJ is legit, I would take the deal, but like someone else said, I would try to bump up just a little more value out of it before settling for this deal. For CJ Wilson straight up I would still accept, just take one shot at doing a little better.

I think its a good trade for you for sure, but like the other guys have said above just try and see if you can get a little more, in either case nice deal for you, the other guys on your roster will come out of their slump so dont let that be the only reason you keep Andre
