Lane can steal a few bags too, can't he? If people in your league don't respect Damon, maybe see what kind of a SP (or even top RP) you can get for Podsednik. Or top SS, but SS is deep enough that there's probably somebody decent on the waiver wire(people seem to be pretty high on J.J. Hardy), or grab Nomar hoping for a comeback. Between Soriano, Damon and Lane, you should still be fairly competitive in speed, and have more balance in your offense and/or pitching. And then Pena should give good pop if you're falling behind in HR (but he will hurt your avg, and probably won't get as many Rs and RBIs as one would hope). I would definitely try to swap Podsednik for pitching, if I were you. Maybe package him with one of your lesser pitchers if that makes him more attractive.
