Dynasty Trade Advice

I just received a blockbuster offer and since you guys are the most knowledgeable group I know, I figured I'd ask. I'd get to keep all the guys in the deal, and the league's categories are pretty slanted towards slugging.

Send Billy Butler, KC 1B
Send Jay Bruce, Cin OF
Send Matt Wieters, Bal C
Send Pedro Alvarez, Pit 3B
Receive Prince Fielder, Mil 1B
Receive Denard Span, Min OF
Receive Austin Jackson, Det OF
Receive Jesus Montero, NYY C

If I asked most traditional fantasy places, I'd get people calling me crazy for not accepting right away, and maybe I am? Fielder is far and away the best player in the deal right now, and it's not like he's some aging vet. I'm pretty much in love with Jay Bruce and Matt Wieters, though, so it's pretty hard to give them away :p

I'm not sold at all on Austin Jackson despite his hot start due to the K problems, and I've never been much of a fan of him as a prospect. Span is nice, and in an OPS league he's one of the few light slugging leadoff types with a decent OPS, but his lack of power is kind of eh in a league like this. Neither of them have close to the potential of the other guys in the deal, even if they are good players.

So what do you guys think? The Alvarez/Montero part of it seems a bit of a wash, and I already have Joe Mauer, so losing Wieters and Montero's position isn't a big concern for me as his bat.

So, whats the verdict?

And, thanks for the help.
