Is S Castro/A Soriano/Crow way too little for Tulo?

In short, Yes that is way to little for Tulo.

Not sure your setting but Castro is barely rosterable... Crow is the "temporary" closer and trading for saves can be risky with all the committees that seem to be used throughout the year. Unless you are getting a Rivera/Marmol/Wilson/etc then do not trade for marginal closers. Basically you are asking is Tulo worth Soriano and you know the answer to that.

Thanks for the reply, but I do not understand how Castro could be barely rosterable. In yahoo leagues he is 90% owned and started daily at a rate of 80%. Shortstop is a very shallow position and the only players that I feel fall behind him are Tulo, ACab, Reyes, and Hanley.

Yes, way too little.

I own Tulo in a dynasty league, and it would take an epic offer to trade him away.

Soriano is on the wane of his career, Castro really only helps in BA, as he has little pop and hasn't shown much speed this years (sb). Crow looks good for the future maybe, but as soon as Soria rights himself he'll be back in the closer role.

If I owned Tulo there is no way that gets him. Like you said, SS is a shallow position, so when you have one, it's gonna take something huge to pry him away. Soriano, while he may have started out hot this year, really hasn't been worth much the past few years. While Castro is young, all he really is going to get you is AVG. Crow........ Let's just say, RP come and go and show up all the time....... Just look at Crow........

Castro is pretty good but still miles away from Tulo regarding value. If other manager is desperate for saves than you can try Castro/elite closer for Tulo and hope for the best.

Anytime you're dealing with elite talent, very rarely will a 3 for one be the better option. And this falls into the case of not being a good deal.
