What you are doing is taking the exception and making it the rule. Just because Soriano overcame his deficiencies does not mean that Baldelli will. It is rare that a player with poor plate discipline doesn't struggle at some point in the majors. Usually they spend a lot of time in the minors because of it if they ever make it at all. Maybe Baldelli is another exception, but I think the odds are heavily against him.

And don't mistake a guy who doesn't take many walks for a player who doesn't know the strike zone. Nomar doesn't chase very many bad pitches. It's just that there aren't too many good pitches that he doesn't like.
