I don't think I would trade Josh Hamilton for anyone right now...

I would sell high on LaHair and see if you can get a good starter from him.

It's not a bad offer. I think you could still get a little more than that for Hamilton. I'd defintiely ask for both RP's and see if he bites.

Agreed. Still, I would go for an established ace. Closers are too volatile to justify trading Hamilton. I would look for something more solid, and tool around the WW looking for saves.

Help?

Agree with this here. Move LaHair for a RP, Kimbrel maybe?

Completely agree. To trade Hamilton right now you need blue chippers, not closers.
Why not try Hamilton and Lahair for Pence, CC, and the closer you prefer. I'd feel much better about this if you are dead set on getting saves.
