Yes, it's interesting and axciting that he can hit a pitch two feet down and in over the fence. But what the hell is he doing swinging at it in the first place?
sorry, you lost me at "axciting"
I try to avoid paralysis by analysis and projections or not, to me the bottom line is his value as a second basemen and numbers he has put up in the not so distant past make him a solid late first rounder. He is young and plays in a hitters park with a solid cast around him. What's the big debate, I don't get it. It's not like he hits .250
18 sbs...77 runs...91 rbis...280 avg
Absolutely first round material over the likes of Schmidt, Abreau, Manny, Helton, Santana, Chavez, Schilling, Sheffield, Bonds and many others.
Heck, why wouldn't you want to pay a 1st round premium for Soriano considering someone like Kent last season posted:
.289 27/107/96 7 SBs
or Giles in only 379 ABs:
.311 8/48 61 runs 17 SBs (1 less Sb than Soriano in only 379 ABs...almost as many runs).
I would definitely bypass Tejada and Manny and Abreu and Helton and Schilling and Schmidt and all those guys for the truely elite 2b that is Soriano. Those numbers in a hitter park are just too much to pass up.
