I think I'd take this...

You'd be upgrading your a closer, you'd be upgrading your catcher, and you can stand to lose Jackson with a stacked OF.

Is it a bad idea to give away Jackson in the midst of this great season he's having? Will I missed the runs scored and triples? Is Kimbrel and substantial enough improvement over Soriano? Is Salvador Perez a good enough option at catcher or is Napoli a sure fire upgrade?

-I wouldn't worry about losing Jackson when you have the following (OF) coming back Ellsbury and Crawford, plus Stanton in your back pocket.
-Kimbrel is the best Closer in baseball, my opinion. Upgrade on Soriano
-Perez is the real deal, but doesn't hurt to have a nice veteran to back him up.....Enter Napoli

I like it,

I think I would do this, too. You are gambling on Napoli turning it on again, like he did last season, and like he was doing for a short time this year. If he does, you come away ahead in the deal.

not a bad deal, but not sure what you'd do with 3 catchers...kinda worthless. Since strike outs don't matter for hitters you can definitely live with Austin Jackson as he contributes pretty well everywhere else.

Upgrading at RP doesn't seem that helpful unless you are making a bigger upgrade.

Don't think it really helps much...only reasons it would help are if a) Napoli turns it on and b) you need to make room in your OF for ellsbury, etc.
