I personally wouldnt do this. By giving up Jones you will loose too much in the hitting category. Especially Runs and SBs. Willingham historically is not as good post all star break...i would really consider that. You may want to look up his post allstar numbers to see for yourself. I do like JMac, but given his young age, who knows if he will keep this up.

No, I wouldn't even touch that trade. McDonald will be good in the second half, but not nearly as good. I think he will be almost replaceable while Adam Jones will not be. When in Seattle as a prospect he was touted as the second coming of Ken Griffey JR....Not saying he will be that, or even close, but he certainly has the talent to be very, very good...hold onto him.

I wouldn't make that trade. Your lineup is very solid, and I wouldn't tinker with it like that unless it resulted in you upgrading at 3B. Also, I don't trust Willingham.
