Soriano over Santana?

Postby TheYanks04 » Thu Mar 03, 2005 11:52 am

From the CBS site:

Ques: I can keep Johan Santana or Alfonso Soriano -- wish I could keep both. Which one would you hold on to?

B.B.: Ouch. That is rough. But it's an enviable spot to be in because both players qualify as the best at their positions. It seems this season the second-base pool is much more thin than those in the high-end of the starting pitcher's pool. So, in short, keep Soriano.


Soriano over Santana? I do not think so. Wonder if this guy also likes O. Cabrera in the 4th round?

I'd keep Soriano over Santana in a heartbeat.

Yeah I always keep the $20 2b with declining numbers over the #1 keeper ranked, $40 SP and Cy Young winner...makes sense to me...NOT.

I'd take Santana.
I don't like Soriano's decline.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

It's pretty close. The fact that it's a keeper makes me lean towards Santana but I would have to know the scoring before deciding.

Soriano isn't the protypical leadoff hitter, but neither was Ricky Henderson. Sooner or later, Texas will move Soriano back to leadoff where he's comfortable and he'll take off again.

Although I must say, Yanks, that your comment ("NOT!") made me think twice about my position. Truly, sir, your wit is matched only by your intelligence.

Santana is much more valuable. I don't care about position scarcity because you can pick up a decent 2B later in the draft(ie. Roberts, Jiminez, Uribe, Utley etc.) Soriano is good, but in roto and points leagues santana has a huge advantage over him. In a h2h league Santana still is better but the gap between them isn't as big.

In a redraft, I would take Soriano over Santana.

In a keeper league, I would rather have Santana.
