I'd take the deal without much hesitation. Butler can't replace Fielder's production but he is more than adequate and you are obviously getting a huge, huge pitching upgrade.

i would take this trade as well. I got the feeling that Butler will pick it up in the second half of the season and post similar production to what he did last year. Moreover, you are getting an elite pitcher and Scherzer who can rack up wins and K's

I reckon he got a good batch of biscuits and red eye gravy seems to have found his power stroke FWIW..
