i like the trade. getting soriono is a big +. your team is pretty good as well. i like your OF, i would start dye or cruz over kearns tho'. maybe trade one of thos OF to get a bacjup Catcher in case kendall pulls what he has the past few years. your pitching is fine

What type of league is this? And I am assuming it is a 10-team league?

You have a pretty good team and I think you got the better deal in your trade. Soriano is a stud and I am hoping Brown comes back too (progress on track so far in Spring Training).

Your OF is very solid and I think you should stick with Kearns as a starter and insert Cruz if he any of your OFs falter. Giants lineup is looking good.

That's a nice trade. Anything Brown and Wells do for you is bonus.

I would sit tight for now. Your offense looks great, though I too would go with Dye or Cruz over Kearns for now.

My only comment is to keep an eye out for pitchers on the waiver wire. I'm not a big fan of Looper. You might see if Embree is available. He should put up big numbers, and has as good a chance as anyone to emerge as the main closer in Boston...

Good roster!

Any trade in which you obtain Soriano is a good one in my opinion. ;-D

Lose Austin Kearns. :-P You should be able to find a better power bat somewhere. Other than that, I'd say you're going to be a winner.

I like Kearns and think he is worth keeping, but play Wells, Dye and (possibly) Cruz ahead of him for now. If he breaks out this season, great, if not, well, no worries.

I always go with track record over potential. Teams (and, to be honest, fans, roto nerds, etc.) have a habit of building up players to be greater than they really are - or to expect young players to immediately reach their potential. It usually takes a year or two in the majors for players to figure things out, and until then they often will play inconsistently and struggle a bit. This holds especially true, it seems, for offensive players. It seems like pitchers are more likely to succeed when they are young.

It's great to have a Kearns on your team - so long as you're not relying on him. If he continues to put up the kind of numbers he did last year over the course of an entire season, then his stock will continue to rise.

Your team is pretty well rounded, but you need more steals on your team, soriano will get 30+, but maggs dont run anymore, try to pick up cheap steals of the FA maybe Dave Roberts if available, otherwise solid team.
