Not a bad offer for you. I think I would make this trade.

Soria....not looking good. Could be out a while, or even season.

u get 2 closers, and PAPI, who most likely will have a better season than Montero. Monetero is going to struggle at first, Sea big ballpark. Make the deal, u have enough arms to get rid of Romero.

you arent going to keep Montero anyway with your roster. Soria might be out a while. But, you can probably get more for both of them then Ortiz and 2 closers.

Should I counter with:

My Anibal Sanchez and Jesus Montero for his Big Papi and Sergio Santos?

I am ok with the Anibal deal but I wouldn't do the Romero deal. I also wouldn't stress about closers. Soria might be down but he won't be the last one that loses his job this year. You should be able to find something later or trade for one if you don't. I wouldn't give up much for a closer right now.
