Soriano or Victorino

Not a trade. I think this I where I'm supposed to post this.

Who will have more SB's the rest of the year, and how close do you think it will be?

I don't know that either has a clear advantage over the other. Both could easily get 30+ SBs this year. Given just how good Victorino was last year I think you have to give him a slight advantage right now. But really it could go either way and there's likely to be little difference between the two.

I'll give the sligh edge to Victorino. Both coming off the same injury, but Victorino needs to steal bags to be effective. Soriano could never steal a bse and still be a very good player with all his power.

fyi, victorino got on base 3 times last night as the leadoff hitter and not got a single steal. they may be trying to take it easy on the basepaths due to his recent injury. soriano on the other hand has said he'll be at 100% now that he's back, but we'll have to see.

Victorino just stole a bag, so hopefully he has green light!

The Chicago news media was all over Soriano's poor running ability last night against the Brewers....in left field. :-[ If he's having trouble catching up to fly balls that don't even make the warning track, he'll have problems running the bases. His hitting will be 100%, but his running....not so much.
