I wouldn’t overpay for any of them except Stanton & Pence.
If Cubs are paying most of Soriano’s money, I’d take his powerful bat in a heartbeat. No pitcher is ever safe with Soriano at the plate. Victorino is a good all-around hitter, runner and a gold glover. I don’t care what his stats are right now. There’s no need for me to talk him up, anyone who closely follows baseball yearly (I mean ‘reads box scores daily’) knows what he brings. If I need to explain why he’s good, you’ve got a lot more to learn than just that.

That said, I would do everything possible to not give up Marte for any of them, and definitely not give him up for a half-season rental. If they do give him up, they damn well better be keeping the guy they receive long term.
I’d give up Taillon ahead of Marte. I wouldnt give up Cole though unless were talking getting a Stanton and for long-term. I’d try to hang on to Hansen too, but anybody else is fair game.

I would have jumped on Hanley Ramirez as a shortstop, but it’s too late now. Dodgers got a steal there

The rest are nothing worth having, especially Sweeney. I have to think Huntington would be a lousy fantasy league owner if he thinks Sweeney would put up better numbers than Alex Presley. I wish he (Huntington) was in my league.

The package Cincy gave SD for Mat Latos has spoiled Byrnes into thinking every team is as dumb as Cincy. If they ask for anything more I would toss in the extra draft pick (#33) in 2013, and nothing more.

Would be great to get him and way cheaper than Headley. He is a really underrated guy and he also has a 1.076 postseason OPS.

What would it take to get him from the Phillies? It appears he is on the block.
