  1. Maybe I’m missing something, I mean as a cub fan, who’s seen Soriano play, and spoken with other cub fans I’d certainly not label soriano’s defense anything better then horrible, but UZR paints a picture of a slightly above average left fielder? Has anyone else noticed this?

  2. FWIW, UZR called Soriano a plus defender in left in both 2010 and 2011. Jus sayin

  3. He has enough arm, and enough speed when his legs are healthy/he’s on the field. He takes some terrible routes to the ball, but his other skills appear to make up for that. I guess.

  4. Re: Soriano’s defense. I see that UZR doesn’t hate him, but the fact that both DRS and +/- have him as below average tells me that he isn’t saving his team many runs, if he’s saving them runs at all.
