I would pick up Vidro. His average will come back down to earth one of these days, he will be productive all year providing he doesnt get hurt, but you do have Mueller, who is also doing well, so you don't have to pick up vidro. I don'y know if you need Soriano. Try and find another closer, maybe Todd Jones if he is available, because Reitsma isn't a great closer, and a regular reliever is sometimes an unproductive spot in fantasy.

Man...Hanley Ramirez is that high in big board already? Anyways, I'd dump Soriano and Arroyo for Kazmir and Haren, they'll give some more fantasy help.

As a Mets fan, I will disagree. Haren, yes. Kazmir, no. They borught him up too early, and he will never reach his full potential.
