Did Shapiro miss this one?

If Horatio is all it takes to net a young fireball reliever on the cusp of closing, would not the Indians have some arms to deal? (Byrd, Stanford, Guthrie come to mind. . . i.e. a proven starter and a potential starter, or some mix thereof). If Soriano has been available, why not a single rumor that the Tribe is after him? Shapiro obviously has had no problem  working with Seattle in the past.
One could argue that Soriano = an expensive Cabrera with an injury history, but when healthy, he's dominant:

Seattle lost out on Schmidt, and have plenty of cash to spend. Horatio has two good (middle rotation) seasons to his name (2003, 2005) mixed in with injuries and mediocrity.
And would anyone really mind going with Fausto in the rotation instead of Byrd?

Any thoughts?
