I would do this deal mainly because you have Kinsler. Utley can be an elite second basemen, however he is a big risk this season and who knows what you're going to get out of him. Mariano is extremely consistent and you know what you're going to get. He'd really improve your RP so I think it's a good deal for you.

I feel like you could get more overall value out of Utley (or even Kinsler), but this does fit a team need rather well, and Rivera is as safe as closers come. I suppose I wouldn't be opposed to accepting this in your situation.

Not awful, but I feel there is more room to be gained in dealing Utley. I'd hold out.
