I still like Soriano over Putz, saves or not, Soriano will have better numbers overall. (imo)

I know Soriano is supposed to be good, but Putz has been good this year. 14 Ks in 7.1 innings. A guy to look for, plus with 2 saves so far, look for him to get some spot saves throughout the year, as Everyday Eddie has turned into everycoupledays Eddie.

Putz is clearly the next guy in line to close...Soriano isn't in the picture there right now. If you're strictly looking for ratios, then snag Soriano

Thats not true, Putz first save came after Eddie threw like 41 pitches the night before and the other save came in 2 innings (not the usual 1 IP) as Seattle (I believe) scored 2 runs the next inning to make it a 4-run lead. Eddie is still Everday Eddie until he shows me he isn't, I trust him. ;-D

I've seen pundits talking up both guys as the backup closer. I like carrying Soriano better because he'll give you the better ratios and k/9 over the long haul (less than 9 innings isn't much of a sample size to base a decision on).
