Pedro will likely out-perform both of them next year (combined it should be closer), and I figure he's got at least 2 more years in addition as a "top 4 rounds" guy. Once you account for the format of the league, eftda made a really good move.
unless he made the trade today, he traded soriano, who at the time was the top 2b, AND street for pedro. lets face it, how many more years does pedro have left in him? 1 or 2? unless street falls off the map, he's an upper-teir closer and soriano should still hit in rfk, they may not be top 2b numbers, but the park wont hold him out of top 3. we know what pedro's arm is, and he's gona pitch in the WBC. who knows how much more wear his arm can take. too much of an injury risk if you ask me.

Livan on the mound...mid 8th inning...135 pitches.
0-0...Nats have 2 Singles both by Guillen...Soriano has K'ed 3 times.
...NJ is on the DL with a hang nail.
Livan walks back into the dugout after completing the inning.
Babbles something. He and Soriano and Guillen get into a 3 way altercation about who is not doing their job. Soriano blames Guillen and the fact that he is playing the OF...Guillen blames Soriano for K'ing all the time and swing at balls 4 feet outside...Livan blames everyone.
NJ breaks his wrist trying to break up the fight.
Vidro hurts his knee and back.
I have no issues with the Rangers moving Soriano, but I did expect a bit more than what we got.
Anyone know anything about Armando Galarraga?
Definitely got to do some digging now.
Without digging, I'd say Kinsler will definitely be up in Spring Training and have a shot at the job. I'd also say there's a very good chance Mench and/or Adrian Gonzalez get moved for pitching.
