Shhhh....Rafael Soriano

Postby Smee » Tue Jun 20, 2006 11:23 pm

This guy is quietly having a great season, 2.29 ERA 1.10 WHIP and a 4:1 K/BB ratio.

He's young and you've got to figure he's going to be the Seatle closer eventually...JJ Putz is doing fine, but he's getting up there.

Soriano is doing well enough to warrent consideration in Holds leagues and especailly Dynasty leagues.

I still have yet to SEE him play, anyone have the scoop on his stuff?

Picked him up probably a month and a half ago in a 20 team auction keeper, and have been very pleased with him!

Hopefully he can get that closer job this year.

I don't think he'll find himself in the closer role barring injury. However he's an outstanding pitcher that will put up great ratios with about a k/ip. I put him in the same breath with guys like Shields, Linebrink, Rincon, Betancourt and Duchscherer now.

i think as long as putz continues to pitch well, soriano will have to settle for the setup role. i assume that seattle will hand him the keys to the closer role next year.

Putz has been absolutely lights-out and he's only 29...

Yea I'd put Duaner Sanchez and Joel Zumaya in that group. Shields, Linebrink, Rincon, Duchscherer, Sanchez, Zumaya and Soriano make up the elite setupmen.

kyle farnsworth :-b

you could also make a case for mike timlin, but he doesn't seem to fit because he doesn't have great stuff like the rest

I don't think people realize how dominant Putz is.

He is having one of the best seasons by a reliever in baseball history.

34 innings, 6 walks, 46 strikeouts
