IMO you have to keep your aces who have the highest value and try to build your offence through the draft and trades.

I disagree. Keep your best players and Soria is easily on that list.

The best move will be to trade a top closer though. But you still keep your best players.

You have six SPs that are all good enough to be the ace of most fantasy staffs. I would keep all six of them + McCann and Kemp and then probably not draft a SP until every single other position was filled. Soria is one of the best closers in the league, but keeping him over someone like Liriano or J Johnson would be a big mistake.

If you're someone who doesn't want Johnson on your team because of all the injury talk (I would still keep him tho), then I would replace him with either Weeks or Reynolds before Soria.

I figure maybe I could trade Liriano and Johnson after draft time, both make me leary with injuries but I could plug some weaknesses with those

I agree with this list. Your SP are deep!

Thanks for help with mine.
