I think he is in last or next to last...
Take your good team and win this year. Worry about next year next year. You never know who will develop and become a star, who will fizzle out, and who will get hurt. I'm sure a couple of years ago people traded half a roster for Carl Crawford, and he hasn't done anything noteworthy since. You just never know what will happen. Focus on this year now, and next year then.
If you feel your team is solid to compete for this year then I have no problem with that trade for you. You get tons of potential & the only huge loss is panda, but if you can survive that then go for it.
Reconsider this option in August. You make the trade now, your 'pretty strong first place' team may very well not be in first by then.
Panda is only 25, it's not like he'll retire off your team before that dynasty league is long over. I know you're using him as the bait to get the other players, just, reconsider this later in the year would be my suggestion.
