I like this trade for you. I think you can plug in Abreu for Gordon and see a negligible difference (slight drop in HRs may be offset by slight boost in SBs) and you could use the closer help.

Looks good to me. Soria hasn't been as dominant as we're used to, but he's still rock solid to me.

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.


Help with mine?

Gordon is slowing down big time. Killing me with his .105 ba this week. Done deal IMO.
