Might as well. You've got plenty of offensive production and you're lacking in saves. I think Soria will be just fine the rest of the season.

What are the chances Soria:

a.) is traded to the Yanks and becomes a set-up man
b.) sucks again and loses the gig to Crow

You guys think he will retain the gig and help me out a lot in saves?

I don't think they're going to take Soria out of the closer spot permanently given his track record over what, four seasons now? He's been one of the top three closers in baseball.

As for the Yanks, they have some of the best bullpen numbers in all of baseball. I think that was more pre-season talk looking at the paper stats...they've outperformed themselves to the point where I don't think they'll try and acquire anyone, at least not someone the caliber of Soria.
