Nope - Dunn's great for your UTL spot and you could get more for him. Your closers aren't great, but you'll get some saves. It would be much more profitable to mine the WW... is Padilla available? Kuo?

Looks like your league is pretty shallow. Double check to make sure there aren't any closers floating out on the wire. Hold off on this trade. Dunn is a perennial power threat who's just off to a slow start. Soria is a top tier closer, but I still think you're selling low here.

I disagree, I'd absolutely do this trade unless you're in roto league that uses OBP instead of AVG or a points league that doesn't penalize KO's. Something's wrong with Dunn, IMO, aside from a "slow start"- his contact rate is just abysmal.

Aside fom that, he's your 3rd First Baseman, riding the pine. He's doing ZERO for your team. Soria's a top RP who could easily get dealt to a contender at the deadline. He's definitely an upgrade over either of your current closers. Farnsworth is destined to lose his job- straight fastballs are not a recipe for ongoing success.
