Man is a total hack and anyone who has seen him play 2b knows that. He was brutal at SS. Even worse at 3b and is at best below avg at 2b. The reason he does not want to move is simple...as an OF he will not command as much money as a free agent or in arbitration. His numbers amonst OFs would not be elitest. Nor would he be an All Star. This has ZIP to do with his comfort level or love of 2b or anything else. It has even less to do with a nonsensical debate as to which position one excellent fielder (AROD) and one above avg one (Jeter) both of whom are making a boat-load of money already should be playing.
Don't even bother talking about Jeter.
I will argue however, that Soriano's position is very understandable in my position. To me, it IS about comfort with his new position, a new
position he has spent countless hours trying to learn. Now you want to ask him to learn yet another position? I wouldn't dream of calling him selfish for that.
