Soriano is one of the most valuable with near 40/40 potential, not pods, not this year anyways

No, he is not even the most valuable pure base stealer. You could through Gagne into the deal and I would still take it.

No way Pods is worth Alfonso Soriano. That trade would be vetoed in my league.

with pods i def win sb categorie., and i keep izzy. 30 more saves

trade for soriano

i get help in other categoris., but could then lose sb, and don't get a closer., so its hard to compare value

pods for soriano i would def do ., but he says i need to give up a closer., i don't know., crazy

geez i see your point but Soriano is still sweet , but i guess if dont HAVE to make the move dont,

Pods has been strugglin lately & his sb rate as gone down, Izzy is good but u ca find another closer sooner or later

soriano though wow, it would be tough 4 me not to do the deal

The way I break down most trades is to project out what I think the players will do and see how that will affect my needs.

Trading Pods and Izzy for Soriano you are going to lose 15 steals and 30 saves. You will gain 20 HR and 50 RBIs. You will also have an open roster spot that could be used to pick up a guy that will get you 5 saves and an extra 20-30 K's ( most 12 team leagues have a player like Lidge, Gordon, Mecir available).

Gain 20 HR -50 RBI - 20 K's
Lose 15 steals - 25 saves

Go with what you need.
