Would you make this trade?

Here’s a trade I make right now:

RHP Kyle Farnsworth to Philadelphia for RHP Jon Lieber and C Chris Coste.

Farnsworth has $10.75 million left on his deal and Lieber $7.5 million, so the money is almost a wash. Lieber (oblique strain) is injured at the moment but has proven he can pitch well in New York (14-8, 4.31 in 2004).

Lieber provides better insurance than Karstens or Rasner would. Coste is a better backup catcher than Pratt or Nieves. Farnsworth would be a loss but he is unreliable because of his back and inability to maintain his command on consecutive days. If Mo isn’t working the 8th inning, is Krazy Kyle your guy?
