I agree with your first thinking. Drop Abreu for Soriano.

Help with mine please?

Are you in a Yahoo league? Because I am stuck with the same problem and I plan to keep Soriano in the DL spot for a little while longer so I can see how Rizzo performs. If Rizzo does not contribute, I may drop him to activate Soriano.

I would drop Soriano before I drop Abreu.

Though I don't think Rizzo adds much sitting on your bench right now. Would he be your primary backup at any position?

1b, 3b, of, utility - I would take Moose first. For 1b, slide Michael Young over. For OF, slide Gordon.

Please help with mine. The votes are 7-7 between the two options.
