Dreadful in the postseason. 

Complete lack of all around game since he joined the team.

Injury prone.

And then his defense reaching a low point today, where he's pulled from left field in the middle of an inning.  


I thought this was a great signing at the time.  Someone who could steal bases, he doesn't, drive in some runs, he doesn't, get by in the outfield, doesn't do that either, he strikes out 3 times for every walk he gets.  All for the low low price of 138 million dollars. 



We coulda bought the Pittsburgh Pirates, and Florida Marlins and combined all 3 teams into one rather then paying for this one man.  No wonder we're at 102 and counting.

It was a bad contract from the start.  His solid offensive numbers always overshadowed the fact that he couldn't play a lick of defense.

It should take a lot for a player to get a 9 figure contract.

It's for 8 years too, he really cashed in on that 40/40 season.

Don't tell Gunna, this is his boy.

I wonder why he didn't start a Soriano the GOAT, MVP watch, Season Thread this year

Sori seems as if he needs a change of scenery at this point.

He's still my boy though.

I was thinking Barry Zito 126 Mil for a pitcher that has had a 4 ERA since being with us.....
