CMON soriano, lets prove the haters wrong again!


No, I want the guy to play like I projected...not as a .310 hitter with 50+ hr power and not as a .198 hitter with 20 hr power. This is insane...I've never followed him in the past but is THIS much streakiness normal for him?

Ya, he can go on some serious cold spells.

He doesnt have dominating streches, he usually has hot streches. His first 2 months were unreal.

Yeah, this year for two months he looked like Albert Belle in his prime (with speed thrown in for good measure) and then for the last month he's looked like Buddy Bell in an off-year.

Absolutely normal for him! He is as streaky as they come. He can kill you in H2H some weeks, but then carry the whole team another. So it is definitely a bumpy ride!

I don't think I could stomach having him on my team in a h2h league...I've got enough trouble dealing with Jimmy Rollins and his disappearing act some weeks.

He got me into first place (almost by himself) and now I am likely slipping from it this week. Oh well, he'll get on another streak soon and get to 40-40 in no time.

BTW, Robinson had Soriano bat third yesturday...

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I noticed that...it'll be interesting to see how hitting 3rd in that order will play out for Soriano.
