I would say no. I don't trust Zobrist and I don't think Kimbrel will have as many save opportunities as last year. Uggla is a solid 2B and it would take more than Kimbrel for me to trade him away. What are the free agent RP's available?

Help with mine?

Never trade for saves man.

Scour the wire looking at possible closers from setup men (Pestano, Cishek, Cashner, David Robertson, Soriano) just to name a few. When one outlives their usefulness, drop them and pick up the next one. You have a 2B who can/will hit 30 HR. Enjoy it.

In many leagues, I actually would do this..... 8 teamer? Too shallow to chase saves as such. 12-14 Teams? I think I just might do this.

Good luck.

With that many capable closers available I don't see why you need to pay for Kimbrel.

It depends on who you would have to replace Uggla. I don't mind it though. The way closers have been falling like crazy, I actually value Kimbrel more now. He could very well fall off a cliff as well but I think he is a safe option for this year and is still one of the best closers out there. Uggla is nice but i don't think he is all that valuable especially in an 8 team league where you could find a 2B replacement fairly easily.
