What do you guys think? Stephen Strasburg for Craig Kimbrel. It would be a straight up 1 for 1 trade. Thanks for the input. I feel confident in my starters but weak in getting saves.
EDIT: Roster didn't seem to show up so here it is:

In a redraft league i think its worth taking the trade.
However if this is a keeper league, I don't think you can give up Strasburg for Kimbrel, a starter of his (potential) caliber and the fact that year after year and new closer comes out and dominates, I think you can afford to get a closer from the WW or without giving up Strasburg.
Not a chance I am trading Strasburg for a closer. No matter how good he was last year. Remember Broxton, this is what could happen to Kimbrel or any closer for that matter. I am on board with dealing him for offense if you can though.

This is what I would say, too. Too much upside to Starsburg, and downside to any closer. If you move him, get a bat.
