just traded for a new closer/outfielder

Alright guys I just traded zack cosart and austin jackson for bradon league and desmond jennings...opinion

Notes

1. My closers are Heath Bell and Andrew Bailey (now hurt)...so I needed a new one

2. I have troy tulo at shortstop and aaron hill as 2b/ss so zack really didnt fit.....

3. I know both are high upside guys but I really needed a closer and desmond jennings is a decent outfielder....

I know most will say its a dumb trade but both guys were pick ups so what do you think?

I don't think it's a bad deal. The only true measure of a deal is how much it helps your team's needs. The whole "who wins in a vacuum" business is irrelevant. You needed saves and I'm not sold on Jackson maintaining his current production.
