Playoff Bound Trade?

Given the following, would you trade for Bumgarner and who would you NOT give up?

12 Team H2H Points League.

We play 2 H2H games a week and I am sitting at the top of the standings by 2 games at 16-4.

The owner of Madison Bumgarner is looking to make a trade as he is in a "win now" mode playing out of the 10th place slot.

My top 4 starters are Cueto, Darvish, Stroman and Severino.

I have DL Starters of E. Rodriguez, J. Gray & T. Walker (who is expected back this week).

Remaining starters include (Lackey, Odorizzi, Farmer, Godley, Volquez, JC Ramirez, Biagini).

We have an 8 player bench with two DL Slots & playoffs start the last week of August (3 weeks long).

I have the following concerns....

1) Severino has an innings limit and they need him for the MLB playoffs.
2) With San Fran so far out of the playoffs, do they treat Bumgarner with kids gloves or does he have motivation considering his actions were embarassing?

Would you trade for Bumgarner and who would you NOT be willing to give up?

I'd trade Stroman for him

Any concern over Severino losing starts late August/early September even though there is a pennant race on?

Not really, maybe gets skipped here and there, no more risk than Bumgarner who cracked his shoulder in half
