i've made 3 trades so far (2 of which i like, and 1 filled a need).. in order of deals

Zach Grienke for Matt Holliday (i recieved Holliday)
Jason Heyward for Jacoby Ellsbury (i recieved Ellsbury)
Andrew McCutchen for Victor Martinez (i recieved Martinez)

i am currently making offers for a SS or another SP... i've been throwing out A. Soriano for Rollins or Reyes (no takers yet)

I am also currently also talking to a person about Liriano/J Upton for Eithier/ A Soriano

which trade would be a better help to my team??

Your team is pretty good.
SS is the most shallow position, so having 2 decent SS may help you in the long term (what if a stud SS gets hurt--you can make a trade with a guy who is desperate to fill his hole). Plus Asdrubal is 2B eligable, and Kinsler's health is always a question.
Don't touch your OF...studs!!
A Soriano is a waste of a roster spot, try to move him ASAP.
Another closer would be helpful. Easier said than done.
Your SP is very deep, and I like King Felix. But Lackey, Danks, and Price are all #3 or 4 starters, not #2's. Maybe a package of A Soriano and Danks or Price could bring you a closer and/or another bat (but not OF, you already have 4 studs...if J Ells is healthy).
