Who is the better baseball player?
Ichiro, and it's not close.
Soriano is good at two things: Hitting it out, and stealing when he gets on. He had, what, 22 outfield assists, but my boy Manny led the league once, and no one says he should win a gold glove.
At one point, Soriano was mocked for his finely crafted skill of striking out all the time. But I guess now, that's just Soriano being Soriano.
I would much rather have Soriano in fantasy, but there's much more to real life.
As we know, Ichiro is one of the better fielders in the majors, and can just plain hit. If Soriano could learn a few lessons from Ichiro, I think we would have a new 1st overall fantasy player.
Yeah.. this "fantasy guru" thing is just a user name, folks.
