Did you want people to give their honest opinion, or did you want them to tell you what you wanted to hear?

This is an easy decision and no amount of waffling is going to make it any harder in reality. You're winning big; don't push it.

TRADE OFFER CHANGED!
I get:
K-Rod, Hanley, Cain

I give:
Heath Bell, Andrus, Halladay

Man, I don't know why I am hesitating on this, I just feel like my pitching stats will go down especially with the Saves.

You can always get Save help throughout the season off the waiver wire. While I love Halladay I dealt him last year in my keeper league, do this deal without a doubt. With either Axfor or K-rod, personally I would want Axford as I think he will have a better year than K-rod, but that is my opinion.

The gain from HanRam over Andrus is far greater than the loss from Halladay to Cain (mind you it is significant) and Bell/Axford/K-rod will all have similar seasons IMO - you may lose out on about 5 saves but over a season that can be made up by watching injury reports and grabbing substitute closers.

So... you go down in closers from Bell to KRod, and down in SP from Halladay to Cain. But you get HanRam over Andrus.

Why are you tripping over this? Seriously KRod and Axford are practically the same value as far as closers go, and not that much less valuable than Bell. Anyhow, I've already said my piece. You'll either do the trade or you won't.
