12 Team Yahoo head-head. Please rate, fantasy noob here :)

I haven't really followed baseball the past 2 years, so I had a lot of catching up to do in preparation for my first real league. Here's my squad.

C - AJ Pierzynski
1B - Jim Thome
2B - Luis Castillo
3B - S. Hillenbrand
SS - Edgar Renteria
OF - Bobby Abreu
OF - Brian Giles
OF - Lance Berkman
Util - Rafael Furcal
BN - Ray Durham
BN - J.D. Drew

SP - Pedro Martinez
SP - Estaban Loaiza
SP - Brandon Webb
SP - Randy Wolf
SP - J. Washburn
SP - C. Zambrano
SP - C. Pavano
SP - R. Harden
SP/RP - Johan Santana
RP - U. Urbina

Obviously I have a lot of starting pitchers. It's mostly a friends league but a lot of them judge trades based on yahoo rankings (which are horrible) and aren't the most hardcore of baseball fans. I have an opportunity to trade for Soriano/Borowski for Pedro and Castillo, but I'm not sure if I want to do that.

your team looks pretty strong. if i were you i would not make that trade imo i don't think Borowski is worth a damn.

Borowski is almost worthless since he may lose his job any day. Since your only real weakness is at closer, I would target them specifically in your trades. It's worth your while to research who is closing for which team and go for the ones that are most likely to keep their jobs (ie Cordero in Texas, Baez in Tampa, Benitez in Florida). Since Yahoo does a horrible job at rating closers, you may get a good deal getting a solid closer for a borderline starter, rather than going for a dominating closer.

Despite what I said above, I think the trade you mentioned is still worth investigating because Soriano is a top 5 overall player at a postion with no depth.
