Is it worth doing this deal when I already have Kimbrel and Soriano and lead the league in saves thus far?? How much more upside is there having Marte over De Aza?? Any insight is appreciated.

De Aza is a hot and cold type of player. I think Marte offers more upside with a hot Pirates that are over .500

I would say do the trade, but I like to have 3 closers, so maybe you can grab another one off waivers. Check is Gregg is available?

I say go for it. You have kimbrel and Soriano, and I'd take marte's hot start and upside over de aza.

That is what I was thinking also and the guy that I was considering this deal with has Axford, so figured it makes sense to do. I do like Marte's upside, but wasn't quite sure if it made that much more sense than De Aza. Thanks for the input guys.
