I wouldn't. I think Willingham and Boni are just hot right now and will cool way down. So basically it comes down to Montero for Bell. Unless you need saves to win it all this year and can guarantee you will win it I dont do this. Montero is way to much of a stud to trade for what you are getting back. You could get more. Hold onto him.

please help
