What do you think of Soriano next season?

Postby RJ24VC15 » Fri Oct 13, 2006 8:58 pm

He was already going to be less valuable because he is a outfielder now, but who else thinks he will not come close to this year's (contract year) numbers?

The contract year theory doesn't work; don't correlate his 2006 success with that.

It's far too early to tell anything with Soriano. Until we see where he is, projecting numbers for him is far too trivial.

At age 30 he just set new career highs in HR, OBP, and SLG. I wouldn't expect a repeat.

No more predicting Soriano numbers for me. :-X It is definitely too early though to even try with his impending free agency this winter. What lineup and what home ballpark he is in will determine alot of his value imo.

Ya I wisely stayed out of the pre 06 debate... I don't think he will repeat but that doesn't mean he won't.

I don't know. I think Soriano being in a contract year might have a big dropoff in his HR and SB. Soriano said late in the year that he was going for 40/40, and in September, he ran pretty much every time he was on base, regardless of whether everybody in the ballpark knew he was going. Also, he ran whether or not it was good for the team if he ran. This may have had something to do with him wanting a bigger contract..... Sorinao is pretty much impossible to predict. Where he goes and what position (batting order AND team AND fielding position) will have a big impact on where he goes.

If there was ever a guy that seemed like the type to play up for a contract, it's Soriano. I'm not interested in him next year, particularly without the 2B eligibility.

Will it?? With that logic, he must have been in for a tough 2006. ;-7
