I'm assuming you are referring to Soriano and not Vidro.
I don't think Soriano is a 1st rounder anymore. He's more like a 3rd rounder to me.

Sure Utley hada great year and can do the same thing again, but maybe not. We have seen a lot of instances of even guys who look like sure shots stumbling in year 2. There is a risk factor with Utley. As for Soriano, he is proven beyond a doubt. Even in RFK he will go 25/25 at the very least, even if his run production and BA take a bit of a dive. There are not many guys who are 25/25 locks in the middel infield.
Additionally, the people around him are not that bad. Not great, buit not abysmal either. He will have some combination of Guillen, Johnson and Vidro (this assumes Soriano in the OF) and there people that have produced surprisingly well in worse situations than this (see Jeff Kent, 2005).
