Hes way better off in pen, because he doesnt have enough pitches, he cant face hitters 2 and 3 times in a game. Hes imo, like Gagne. A stud in pen, a average sp in rotation. Soriano is looking like a future stud closer more and more.
I couldn't agree more! Soriano got roughed up last year when he had a couple of spot starts. While its true that his control is better this year, he's still a two-trick pony... its just that one of those tricks is a helluva fastball. Did you see him strike out Nomar on three pitches - all fastballs - yesterday? It was as Bostonians would say "wicked awesome"
