What do you guys think of him? I've been hearing really good things. Is he injured? What kind of stats do you feel he's capable of this year if healthy?

He's not a closer. He's not a starter. He's not even a set up man. He has no fantasy value.

in 5 years where do you see this guy being, a stud starter, a great closer, or just an average player. or do you see him still in the pen.

A starter:

I'd also go with the next pedro martinez over being the next Brien Taylor.

Even though he'll probably end up somewhere in between. ;-D

Dude is right, he's currently injured and will miss some time before coming back as a middle reliever.

this is the dumbest remark i have ever heard in here. in 40 games the guy had an ERA of 1.53 and a WHIP of 0.79. Hmm yeah there isnt much fantasy value there at all. I see soriano this way. He will be next in line for the closers job, and he is also next in line for a rotation spot. so guardado or one of their closers only has to slip or get hurt and soriano will be in that slot, and you can count on some great figures, until then they guy is gonna shave a ton off you teams whip and era!!

he will be ready for the season, he strained a muscle in his side....he'll be fine.

I read an article where Soriano, himself, said he doesn't feel comfortable staring games and he wants to be a closer. To me, that says that he will never be a starter
