Yipes.. i know he's been struggling but 8th?? Man when i traded for him 2mths ago i thought this would be the move that put my team over the top. Still waiting for that to happen. And when i see he's being shuffled to the bottom of the order.. makes me think that's not going to happen anytime soon.

I'm in the same boat. Got him about 6 weeks ago. He's done squat since.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
yeah it does hurt a little. I'm still in 1st but i'm only ahead of 2 teams by 1 game. So its a close race. I gave up a lot to get Soriano is what hurt. At the time Pedro was just coming off the DL and my pitching was stacked anyway so i traded Pedro,Vidro for Soriano and someone else who i cut already. It hasnt hurt me getting Soriano but, it hasnt helped my offense like i thought it would.
Soriano has fewer extra base hits this season than Orlando Cabrera, Jeff Conine, Dmitri Young, and Bill Mueller, to name a few. Where are his doubles?
I agree though, he does make a better clean up hitter than lead off. What kind of leadoff has a .328 OBP? He needs to get more clutch, he's batting only .257 this season with runners in scoring position. I see 5th as the best batting spot for him.
Well i personally wouldnt mind seeing him get a few days off to try and figure things out. Get his mind right. I'm doing fine with him struggling and not doing anything so a few days on the bench to get him some rest and time to gather himself might do him some real good. But for a while now he hasnt been what people like me who paid a high price to get and those that drafted him have expected. Few days off, may just help him turn it back around.
