Do it....Soria is a solid closer.......it's a fair trade value wise......plus, at this point in the season, it's a heck of a lot easier to find OF's like Grodon than closers like Soria. Not to mention that quility closers are one of the easiest assets to trade down the road if you ever do need another hitter.
