Alfonso Soriano moves to LF; Should you keep Oliver Perez or Ben Sheets?

Just a head's up -- my weekly fantasy baseball column is up over at Roto Times:

After much hand-wringing and speculation about last-minute trades and the disqualified list, Alfonso Soriano and the Nationals appear to have agreed on a working relationship. Soriano assumed his position in left field in the first inning of the Nationals' game on Wednesday, putting an end to any concerns the Nationals had of being forced to take drastic measures to deal with their wannabe second baseman.

Does that mean that fantasy owners need no longer be concerned with the situation? Not quite.

Simply put, I'm not positive he won't still be moved. Furthermore, his home/away splits were absolutely horrible last year, and he'll be playing half his games this year at the hitter's tomb known as RFK Stadium (not to mention a heck of a lot of divisional games at Florida's Pro Player, Shea Stadium and Turner Field.

I also take a look at whether Oliver Perez and Ben Sheets are still worth holding onto in a keeper league. Head over to find out what I have to say.
