The upside of getting Soriano:                                                        



Last Season: .303(.326) on base percentage, .241(.278) average, 20(290) homeruns, 55(760) runs batted, in with 25(334) doulbles, 1(24) triple, and 115(1,506) hits.


Last Season: 1(24) triple, 9(257) stolen bases, and was caought steeling 2(71) times.


Last Season: 40(338) walks.

Also Soriano is a 3 time Silver Slugger award winner and a 1 time All-Star Game MVP. Sorino would also fit perfictaly in the outfield because the Red Sox could get ride of J.D. Drew and get a player for the bench and Soriano could fit firght in in right field.

Down side of getting Soriano:


Last Season: 118(1,187) strikeouts.
