Jeff Kent for Mariano Rivera?

I have several other closers and I need some pop in the lineup.

With the assumption that Jeff Kent won't break his hand washing his
pickup, is this a decent trade?

Rivera should be able to get you some better pop than Jeff Kent.  A 2b won't
make that much of a difference, unless he's Soriano.  Rivera is still one of
the best closers.  Kent is still high on the list of 2B, but I'd shoot for a
top 3B, or a better 1B or even a very good OF.
