Soriano: 50-40?

I followed the advice that Chase Utley would outperform him...and sadly, I am sad. :~( I think 40-40 is attainable for him, but he'd have to request a few more SB opps

He said he is trying to get to 40-40. I think especially now, since the Nationals are out of it, he will find motivation in getting those 40 steals.

I dont know if hell get to 40, but hell certainly try to make a push for it.

Amazing for someone that is pretty thin to hit that many homers. I heard he uses a heavier bat than most players also. Dude is strong

I still don't get why he bats leadoff. I mean, sure, he can steal a base...but how many of Soriano's HR's have been solo shots because he's either leading off, or the pitcher and 8th batter got out before him?

I could see 50/35, but not so much 50/40.

They are trying to make him more disciplined....K less and BB more.

i shouldve come to the cafe and told everyone this would happen early in the season. in my 10 team keeper, my rival owner traded for him (we've both finished in the top 3 for 5 years running). at the time, i couldnt have been happier (he gave up abreau and harden to get him and liriano in week 1), especially since my league has BB and K as offensive categories. of course he will double his BB rate in addition to the other crazy #s he's been putting up. now he's in 1st and i'm trading vets for young keepers. i hate fantasy baseball.
