Depends on if you need a 1st baseman more or an outfielder and how you are doing on steals. I expect Howard to have similar numbers to Soriano's 1st half, so that all depends on your positional needs. I'd drop Pagan for Howard if you don't need his stolen bases.

I'm in last place in stolen bases and the guy in second to last is 15 stolen bases ahead. Do I have a chance of coming back or should I just concede that category? Here's my team

Buster Posey, Prince Fielder, Brandon Phillips, Jose Bautista, Ian Desmond, Asdrubal Cabrera, Kevin Youkillis, Nelson Cruz, Michael Morse, Juston Upton, Angel Pagan, Alfonso Soriano, Corey Hart, WIll Middlebrooks, Troy Tulowitzki DL

Also, I have plenty of people at both OF/1B positions.

Basically this. Sori and Pagan are your two worst players. It comes down to what your team needs the most.

15 stolen bases is going to be tough to make up unless you pick up speed through free agency and trades. I don't see many roto teams win with a last place finish in a category... you might want to look at moves you can make to improve SB instead of bringing in more power. I don't know where you are in the standings though.
