This guy is going to be amazing for years to come and you're all going to feel like morons for saying how much he sucks just because of his slump right now. This kid is only in his 3 full season and he batted .300 in his 2nd season....bonds didnt' do that till his 5th. Soriano also broke 100 RBI's in his second season (batting leadoff) another feet bonds didn't accomplish until his 5th season. I have Soriano on my team now and he has been hurting me a little in batting average, but i still wouldn't trade him unless i was blown away by the offer.
I'm going to just go ahead and say it..... Soriano will be better than Bonds (and nowhere near as big of a jerk).
LOL! Soriano in the 500-500 club? You are kidding right? Soriano will not hit 500 HR in his career. He is the new Juan Samuel. Remember him? He was even more dominant than Soriano was.
Soriano's problem is that he has no plate discipline. Hw will never draw 100 BBs in a season so he can never match Bond's greatest season. Does anyone think Soriano will ever have a an .863 SLG% or a .582 OBP? That will never happen. Can you show us any evidence the Soriano is capable of drawing 200 BBs in a season?
