9/24 Soriano power

Alfonso Soriano is finishing on a strong note. Soriano hit his 31st home run, a solo shot in the sixth, and set a career-high with 105 RBIs in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. The last Cubs player to drive in more runs in a single season was Derrek Lee, who totaled 111 RBIs in 2009. Soriano’s 31 homers are his most since he hit 33 in 2007. His 105 RBIs are the most for any Cubs player, age 36 or older, in a season since Moises Alou drove in 106 at age 37 in 2004. Soriano also is one of two players in the National League this year to total 31 home runs and 105 RBIs, joining the Brewers’ Ryan Braun (40 homers, 108 RBI).

more games with the DH next year… could be a good thing for Soriano.

Is it really more games? I thought it was just more spread out.

cubs go from 15 interleague games to 20…. at least thats what I thought… Carrie correct me if I am wrong

Soriano should win the N.L. MVP AARP award.

There is only one Kerry Wood.

he’s had two starts with 8 ERs and one start with 5 ERs… the rest were 2 or lower and none over 7innings of work…. I mean thats fine, its your average 3rd or 4th spot in the rotation pitcher. But it isn’t great… The reason he wins more with the Rangers is bc they are a far better offense and a far better bullpen so I wouldn’t rank a guy based upon his wins alone. He has a WHIP in the 1.3s which again is about league average. I don’t know how many other ways to explain it but he has been average for the Rangers.
