Soriano will not be playing the outfield. I think hes going to wind up being given a chance at SS. It will help his value for this season, but long term if he switched to short his value goes down slighty down because SS is deeper than 2b for the time being. He has never played OF,I dont think they will even try him there and in the event that they do to experiment, he will be bad enough there for them to switch him back to the infield very fast.
I completely disagree. There is a reason to play Eric Young...so that you can trade him and get something for him. I mean by mid year Brian Jordan and Eric Young will be gone so they better get some playing time. Young could put good numbers if he starts and they might be able to get somehting in return.
I don't really understand why they want Nix in center. He reminds me a lot of Juan Gon in the field, not real fast but he has a canon for an arm. I saw him play very well in RF, he can get people at third.
I think Nivar would make more sense out there, maybe not right now, but later in the year. I think they should put Soriano in Center, I guess Jordan plays right so put nix in left. Once you trade Eric Young, move Soriano to 2B or SS and move up Nivar.
