Would you do this trade? Keep in mine I need saves.

I get
Geovany Soto
Jorge Cantu
Fernando Rodney

I give up
Garrett Atkins
Pablo Sandoval
Joe Nathan

I guess it comes down to do I want to greatly improve my catching but give up a potential 35-40 saves.

I wouldn't do it. I think I said this earlier, I'm not a big fan of Atkins at all, but you're giving up too much here.

You're losing:

Nathan, a top 3 (at worst, 4) closer in baseball, and unless I missed something, your only closer;

Atkins, a decent 1st/3rd baseman, and;

Sandoval, a guy who may break out in a big way, and depending on your league rules, qualifies at both 1st and catcher;

for:

Soto, a good catcher (good catcher = average at a lot of other positions, and we can expect almost as good, if not better production from Weiters and Sandoval if they play all season);

Cantu, a guy who until last season hadn't done anything worthwhile since '05, and;

Rodney, who may be 4th in line for saves in Detroit (behind Lyon, Zumaya and Perry, it seems. At least if Zumaya is healthy.)

I really don't see how this trade helps you at all.
