Who needs Boone when you can have Soriano

I heard an interview with Buck Showalter and he seemed to be very pleased with Soriano. He said a lot of stuff of how he "came to the park every day ready to play," "he liked the excitement that soriano brought," "always had a smile on his face," etc.

On the ESPN game on monday, the announcers (when talking about Michael Young's move to SS) said that Soriano had said that he did not want to play SS or OF. However, i specifically remember articles quoting Soriano as saying that he would play wherever they put him, but he preferred 2B.

Personally, i think that people are looking into the situation way too much. Much of the media (especially game announcers) just want something interesting to talk about.

However, i wouldnt be surprised in the least if Texas traded Soriano this season, if they can get a good pitching prospect in return...not because they want to get rid of Soriano, but because they really need pitching badly, and they can plug in Eric Young at 2B the rest of the season.

The announcers said that Texas' clubhouse and management were completely disgusted with Soriano's attitude and play so far. He's on the trading block and it was all but a done deal that he would be an ex-Ranger very soon.


Notice that's the Yankee announcers saying that.

There isn't much talk of moving Soriano here in Texas. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if they do move him, but there isn't any real talk about it going on down here.

Don't be surprised if the Dodgers make a run at Soriano now that the new owner, McCourt, has all the transition business out of the way.

A good pitcher + $$$ = a 40-40 Dodger!

(hopefully) if Boone comes back, he'll be a better defensive 2B than Sori was. In that lineup, a guy like Sori gets lost. He really turned me off last year during the playoffs when he was almost an automatic out. If I had the choice, I'd dump Lofton and sign/trade Beltran either before July or in the offseason. Let Sori alone.

I think if anyone on planet Earth had the choice, they'd dump lofton and sign Beltran as soon as possible.

I agree. Every team would prefer Beltran. :-D
