No way. Francisco could blow up any time. Try Ogando for Kimbrel.
If that doesn't work, then Oswalt or Hudson.

I like Kimbrel a lot, but I agree with Hootie that Francisco is too much of a wild card at this point. Cain should net you a better return.

I would rather have Cain and your group of closers. They aren't great but they should give you decent production. I don't think finding a better closer should be a priority at this point.

Horrible trade for you. Closing help should be easy to find on the waivers at some point this year. Just be ready when someone struggles or gets hurt to beat the other owners to the punch. Definitely not worth giving up Cain. Don't do it!!!!
