I don't go after him, no matter the pricetag...

I've said it numerous times...he's playing way above his head, at 30 years old, in a walk season.

stay away, stay very far away

Playing over his head?

His 162 game average over his career.

33 hr 94 rbi 34 sb .285 average

Then you have the power/speed number. 3 out of the last 4 years he has been #1

He plays this way every year.

Look at his OBP...This year it is very good...Other than that, it is piss poor.

This is his only season with a .600 SLG%...his career best was .547

This is his only season with an OBP above .350...his career best was .338

Also, stolen bases are pretty useless.

OBP is overrated, mostly for a guy like Soriano. His speed is great but his power is his biggest asset.

No way would I have Soriano batting leadoff. He could still steal 30 bases batting cleanup.

Visions of Roberts/Markakis/Tejada/Soriano in the top 4. How can you not drool over that? :D

Soriano wouldnt come here no matter what the money.

He wants birght-lights, big city stuff. He wants NY/LA. he Nats were FOOLISH to not trade him because there is just no real way they can spend the amount of money it will take to keep him AND compete on a regular basis with the Mets.

He wont come here, end it now.

What are you talking about? He says he wants to stay in DC. Not Mayberry but not bright lights big-city either. He'd come here if the money was right. Camden Yards would suit him just fine.

I saw this weekend that it is rumored that he is looking for 5/75...To get him here, we likely have to go more than that.

Do you go after him?

No...his numbers this season are just so much better than his career numbers, so how do you expect him to continue hitting like he has?

Neither Lee nor Soriano are guys we should be overpaying to come here. Set limits of 5 years, 60 million for Soriano and 4 years, 55 million for Lee.

Personally, I would rather see Lee here for a variety of reasons.

    • I guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
