I would hold onto Wright. He's the best player involved in the deal. I don't see how that trade benefits your team that much, besides maybe Soriano, who I think is playing over his head right now. The rest of your lineup seems fine.

Knowing what the upgrades are, is it worth it?
I actually don't mind this deal at all. But I would take Freese over Kouzmanoff this year and any other, you can't think about free keepers next year if you want to win this year.
You get fairly good value and enough upgrade in other areas to make this worth it for me. 5 quality guys better than 1 really good player and some dead weight
I would actually do it. I think it helps your team overall and I think Wright is one of the most overrated fantasy players. That being said he is still good but you are getting good value back. I Mean Martin is a clear upgrade, Burnett is a major upgrade in my opinion, and Berkman could put up similar numbers as Wright minus the SB when it is all said and done and he is a major upgrade over Helton. I would pull the trigger.
I think you're getting too much scrap back for Wright. There's no marquee player coming back in return. Berk I guess would be the best one you'd get, but that's not saying much. Especially with the Astros futile offence this year.
I've been offered Freese & Dunn in 12 team keeper league, and I'm not even sure if that's enough for him.
