So he's not a useful piece until 2014 when he turns 35 and at that age, there's no guarantee that he'll come all the way back. And Masterson isn't much to write home about either. Soriano and Chipper can at least be useful this year, so you're not getting much back for them.
You're in the right ballpark in who you want to deal, you just need a better offer.
Thanks for the informative response! I rejected the deal, and he came back with Lewis for Chipper. Since I'm not playing for this year at all, should I accept, or do you think I could get more for Jones before our August 19 trade deadline? Lewis was great this year before his injury. Is he really out that far into 2013? I haven't really seen any solid ETAs in the reports I've read.
