I'm trying to pull in Kimbrel from the team with the league lead in saves. I just traded for Jim Johnson, who should be solid this year, but Kimbrel's Ks are just too desireable not to pursue. I am in the top 3 in almost every hitting category (even without Stanton and Kemp producing up to par), so I don't think it will hurt me too much to give up a little hitting to help out my pitching. Here is what I was thinking....

My Posey & Jim Johnson
for
His S. Perez & Kimbrel

Is giving up Posey too much?

Yes you are giving up too much. Closers are unreliable even the Kimbrels of the world. Always a chance he gets hurt and when a pitcher gets hurt it is can be for the season. Hitters don't run into that long-term injury as often.
