Soriano to bat 8th

Postby bsblallstr » Mon Feb 09, 2004 9:43 pm

CBSsportsline is saying that he will bat 8th this year, with tyler houston or whoever is at 3rd batting behind him, how much does this hurt his value, especially since he is a free swinger and now has no one behind him to make pitchers throw strikes.

Can you please post the link..I really would like to read this article, I know Soriano K's alot but his power is just too good to keep him that far back in the lineup.

I think his stolen bases and batting average will go down and his RBIs and HRs totals will go up.

here is the link

but i dont think he will have as many HR or RBI if he bats here, i think his k's skyrocket while his batting average falls more, i really like him, but this scares me a lot.

Soriano batting 8th


Yeah, this will certainly impact his at bats, his SB totals, and his overall production. He'll see less quality pitches in the 8th slot...and we all know he's a wild swinger...meaning less balls in play. You have to seriously consider moving him out of the top 3 at this point.

First of all, there is no confirmation from anyone even associated with the Yankee organization that this is true...no word from Torre yet on what the lineup will look like.

Second, don't you think the Torre is smart enough to realize that with Soriano being the free-swinger that he is, he needs some lineup protection in order to produce? Torre is a very smart manager, I'm not sure he would put a 40/40 candidate at the bottom of the lineup.

Fantasy sites and mags can speculate all they want, but I won't believe it until I see it...even with the strikeouts, it doesn't make sense to put him in the 8 hole...he may not lead-off, but I can't see him at #8.

Why would his hrs go up losing about 126 abs? And i doubt his rbis go up, with 126 fewer chances.
