I agree with a lot of the points that have been made, but there is still a good chance that Soriano finishes .285 30-100-15, which is still a very good season regardless of where he plays. The fact that he plays 2b, just adds to his value. However, I think the main point is that it can easily be argued that this is just an off year, and a .300 35 110 25 season can be expected for next year. I honestly see him as top 5, or at worst top 10, because of the lack of talent at 2b. Who is ahead...A-Rod, Pujols, Vlad, Helton perhaps, Manny is up there....but in terms of who I would want after the big 3, Soriano has to be the guy.
