If you bought Soler last year, it probably was reluctantly (the three experts leagues coughed up an average of $8) and if you found yourself in the hunt at the halfway mark, there's a good chance you had a powers surplus. And there's a good chance that a team that was very much out of the hunt would overpay for Soler, even though he clearly was playing way over his head.

If you traded Soler, or if you traded for Soler, the last thing you expected was that he would slash .301/.400/.649 in the second half. He scored 64 runs, hit 26 homers, drove in 62 runs and stole three bases.
