I think he kinda smeared his image with the whole Was/Tex/positional change. That might not be his fault, not sure. I think his hype will increase once he gets traded to a better team. I think he's going to end up on the Mets or Cards as a 2B. Any team that gets him has to assure him that that is where he'll play next year in order to sign him.
Close to Zero chance he ends up on the Mets. The Mets are looking for starting pitching, not another bat. I know they talked a lot about Soriano in the spring and offseason but the talk about him going to the Mets is dead around here. It's much more hot about him returning to the Yankees with Matsui down, Damon hurting, and now Sheffield looks like he's headed back to the DL with his wrist injury.
Regardless, Soriano is an absolute stud. Got a legit shot at 40/40 this year.
