YIKES! This is a tough one....

breaking it down into 3 separate trades
Kinsler = Zobrist (both are frustrating to own)
Cargo > Soriano
CC < Wolf

Looking at it that way you need to decide this ...is cargos production going to be that much greater than soriano to justify giving up your 2nd best SP

My opinion: make the deal Cargos .300 plus avg and five cat ability is the clincher
Wolf will be just fine to own in the NL plus if it comes down to it a 12 team league is shallow enough you can stream and pick your matchups. You can't do that with oufielders and Cargo is a stud hitter...much more valuable than a stud pitcher IMO

It's too much, even for Cargo.
