Yes..... and here's why. I don't really know that much about Kazmir, but if he truly is already an ace ... w/ a reasonable contract over the next couple years.. then what is his downside? Not many aces fall completely off the table (unless due to injury), however, many high profile prospects do. We'd essentially be trading two possible gems, for 1 actual one. I know it's a gamble, but it's a gamble that a smart team makes, IMO.
