The thing is, I wouldn't go after Fielder alone. I would try to target an OF. Tulo is likely coming back at some point, and honestly he's likely to give you just as much production as Fielder from here on out - just concentrated in a smaller timeframe. Your 1B situation is actually pretty good if Davis qualifies at 1B in your league (which he should), and you have all the same trade chips that others were mentioning with or without the deal. Fielder is a stud, but he's getting older. His numbers are going to be too similar to Tulo's at the end of the year for someone who played 2 months more baseball.
Look, anyone who approaches you with an offer for Tulo is looking to get him at the discounted DL price. Don't do it. You hold on to him and make someone PRY him out of your hands. He can't hurt your team on the bench, and you have as good a replacement as you could hope to find in Segura. It's not like either one of them will sit there wasting away on your bench when Tulo comes back. If you really want to deal Tulo, do it in the off-season, when the other managers will be more willing to pay full price.
And for god's sake... don't you dare think about trading Tulo to this guy without shopping him around to all the other managers. Make it public. Tell the whole damn league that you're willing to move Tulo, and see what kind of bidding war you can strike up.

However, no one in my league is willing to pay full price because they're all afraid of his injuries. The next best offers I've gotten was McCutchen, or a bunch of prospects (main ones being Gomez and Myers), but I'm looking to win this year. I don't know if you read my update post or not, but the offer has changed to basically Fielder and Jennings for Tulo. Jennings has huge upside, but hasn't shown it yet. What do you think?

He also has McCutchen who he's willing to trade. Would you rather have McCutchen or Fielder?
