    Since this is a Soriano article I am technically going to be going to far off of topic. I really do not worry very much about batting order, because it really has been shown to be way overblown by radio talk show hosts and message boards. Soriano, Lee, Ramirez, and Bradley need to be in the first five spots, I don’t particularly care where.

    I am a bit pissed that we need to worry about Soriano’s comfort level, if a $136 million doesn’t make you comfortable how am I to believe that your position in the batting order will. What has me a lot pissed off about Soriano is how poor of an outfielder he still is. He has had three seasons to get better, and he looked worse last year than he ever has before. He has all of the tools to be a great outfielder, he just has not made a commitment to master his craft.
