Why would you ever not want a 1.000OBP player?
Walks are good. If Pena never, ever makes an out, your team will do pretty well.
Walks are marginally less good when it is the last useful hitter in your lineup. So in your case, I think you have it exactly right, Soriano is a low walk guy, so he won't walk and leave your #6 hitter to make out with 2 runners on.
