'06 Alfonso Soriano Projection

Postby BronXBombers51 » Thu Dec 08, 2005 1:15 am

A move to RFK will take a toll on his numbers. What do you think he's going to put up in Washington? No Teixeira, Young or Blalock. Instead he has Jose Guillen, Nick Johnson and...I'm not really sure.

I'm going to throw some random numbers out there, tell me what you think:

.270-25-85 with 20 SB and 80 runs.

Too high? Just right? What are you expecting from him this year?

I'd say about 30 HR, 80 RBI, 80 R, and 35 SB (I think they will really let him run there).

55 RBIs? I can't see how they'd drop that much.

Soriano's rbi range will be in the 70-80 range. Can the Nationals lineup be worse next year than it was this year? Jose Guillen hit 76 rbis last year. You throw in Zimmerman into that lineup, and can Nick Johnson spend anymore time on the DL next year than this year? he'll get his rbis.

This trade may have been crap for fantasy purposes but Soriano will help the Nats greatly offensively I think. It's not like he has nobody around him, Guillen is a very good hitter and Johnson is coming into his own nicely. A healthy Vidro won't hurt either.

I'd say he gets at least 70-80 RBIs, if not more. His numbers will surely take a hit going to Washington, but I think some people are slightly overplaying it. Regardless, a .270-20-80-20 stat line is still good enough to be a top 3 2nd baseman IMO.
