Yes, I would absolutely do this. You have Felix and Yovanni to lessen the blow of losing Kershaw, and you pick up Big Al, who will be turning it on anyday now. Make the deal.

Is this Kershaw or Morrow? In the title it says Morrow but the post has Kershaw?

If Morrow, then absolutely but I am going to assume that was a mistake and you meant Kershaw.

If Kershaw, then I actually don't think I would do this. Maybe I jumping off the Pujols wagon too early but I am really worried about what he isn't doing. At this point I don't think I would trade for him unless it was a steal and this isn't a steal.

Maud makes a good point. Giving Kershaw may be buying too high on Pujols at the moment. It is worth taking a shot on a deal with a slightly less steller SP>

Yes, I screwed up the title. Lagged out the first two posts, then I get through with a typo! It is now fixed.
Anyways, thank you all for the advice. I'm going to sit on it a little longer, but I had Han Ram last year and I'm really gunshy about getting stuck with another all star on his one bad year.

Thanks again!
