Beltran had a better average by .17 last year (some, but not a ton) and Soriano is playing in a hitter's park. Currently (I know this isn't etched in stone) Soriano is leading the BA run, .343 to .315.

41-35 in favor of Beltran last year. Not a huge difference. Currently 6-3, again, not a huge difference. I'll give you the stolen bases, though.

I disagree with you here. Soriano has a better lineup around him, IE Blalock and Tex (injured now, yes). Close, though. Last year, 114-102 Soriano.

It could. But it won't.
