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:

ESPN 12 teams H2H each cat.
Batting Cats:

Batting Average (AVG)
Home Runs (HR)
Runs Scored (R)
Runs Batted In (RBI)
Stolen Bases (SB)

Piching Cats:
Earned Run Average (ERA)
Strikeouts (K)
Walks plus Hits Per Innings Pitched (WHIP)
Wins (W)
Saves (SV)

My Team:

C Russell Martin, NYY C
1B Lance Berkman, StL 1B, OF
2B Ben Zobrist, TB 2B, OF
3B Edwin Encarnacion, Tor 3B, 1B, DH
SS Dee Gordon, LAD SS
2B/SS Marco Scutaro, Col SS
1B/3B Chase Headley, SD 3B
OF Jay Bruce, Cin OF
OF B.J. Upton, TB OF
OF Logan Morrison, Mia OF
OF Yoenis Cespedes, Oak OF
OF Lorenzo Cain, KC OF
UTIL Jason Kipnis, Cle 2B
Bench Carlos Quentin, SD OF
Bench Mat Gamel, Mil 3B
DL

P Clayton Kershaw, LAD SP
P Roy Halladay, Phi SP
P Jered Weaver, LAA SP
P Stephen Strasburg, Wsh SP
P Mat Latos, Cin SP
P Josh Beckett, Bos SP
P Yu Darvish, Tex SP
P Heath Bell, Mia RP
P Gavin Floyd, CWS SP
Bench Matt Thornton, CWS RP



Im with the others saying you need help with offense. Personally with your team i think id decide to Punt saves and pick up offense. You only have Bell and thornton as it is. Even if you traded for a top RP, i think you would need another to compete. Im way low on bell also,,,not a fan. If you decide to throw Saves, you can trade Bell and thornton for help on offense. I wouldnt suggest doing this in a Routesserie league but since its H2H, throwing saves is your best option here.

In a keeper league? awwwwww heeelllllzzzz nawwwww.

PS. That is one of the most stacked 12 team pitching staffs I've ever seen. :-b Your offense stinks though. Punt saves and trade Bell for some help there. Maybe move one of your top SP for a stud bat while you're at it.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Thanks for all the inputs! I'm new to all of this so I really appreciate it. I declined the trade and I'll start looking for bats.

That dude that proposed the trade has Fielder, should I counter?

ya counter with Bell and Becket. After he rejects up it to a diff pitcher. Or just look who needs pitching help or who might need Bell.
