I consider Soriano as a wildcard. I didn't know what to think of him in 06 so I just kept quiet and stayed away. A lot of people thought park, lineup would just kill him but he flourished instead. In 05, he was a big disappointment considering he was in the most ideal situation considering park and lineup.

For 07, he seems like he is in another good situation with park/lineup. My guess is that he will fall a little bit from 06 and not enough to be a bust. Slightly disappointing the owners who expected his 06 level. But I still do not know which Soriano we will see.

THat's almost exactly my thinking.

Once in a century? See: Rich Aurillia. See Richard Hidalgo. Catastrophic failures happen pretty much every year.
