But in real baseball, yes, I'd rather have a Boone or Kent. But this question is about FANTASY.
In my league CS and Ks are counted so Soriano's value is much lower in my Yahoo league. As for Boone he had a poor 1st half last season but really pounded the ball in the second half.
2002 1st half: .229/.301/.390 .691 OPS
2002 2nd half: .336/.384/.546 .931 OPS
Quite a huge difference, I'd say.
