 JockBio: Alfonso Soriano Biography
Alfonso was irritated at the way he was being moved around, but remembered that his goal a few months earlier had been to become the club’s utility man. He also knew that, with Derek Jeter likely to be the Yankee shortstop for a while, he’d have to adjust to another position.
Alfonso filled in for Jeter at shortstop, moved to left when Jeter returned, and then finally took over at second base when the club decided that Knoblauch would be the new leftfielder.
Alfonso was forced to commit himself a split-second sooner, and it didn’t take long for word to spread that anything with a late break would make him look foolish.

 Alfonso Soriano - Which One is Real? - Fantasy Baseball Cafe 2006
Alfonso Soriano came out of the gate red hot, making him the top ranked hitter in all of fantasy baseball through June 4.
One is that Soriano’s home run pace up through June 4th (11 ab/hr) is the real Soriano and he’s just in a slump right now from which he will return to start hitting a home run every 11 ab’s.
I think given Soriano’s home run explosion at the start of this year expecting a regression to his consistent power numbers that he posted in 2002, 2003 and 2005 makes the most sense.

Alfonso's name is so prevalent in the rumor mill only partially because of his value.
Teams with solid clubhouse chemistry might not look to shake up the lineup with Soriano, and may instead bolster their bench with proven veterans who would embrace a reserve role, like Marlon Anderson and Daryle Ward (who both made clutch hits in last night's series-clincher in Atlanta).
Soriano, who may be older than 30 anyways, is looking at a steep decline in the near future.

 Alfonso Soriano baseball cards
When Alfonso Soriano was growing up in the Dominican Republic, he most likely never heard the baseball expression that a walk is as good as a hit since he is a free swinger with the bat who did not draw his first base on balls until his 25th game of the season in 2001.
Soriano has the arm and range to become a solid defender in addition to his great speed on the bases.
He is off to a great start in baseball and being on a great New York Yankees team makes his cards even more collectible.

Soriano, 30, is believed to be seeking an eight-year deal for approximately $17 million per season, which could put the total value of his package in the range of $135 million.
The addition of Soriano would be the latest in a flurry of off-season moves by general manager Jim Hendry that have overhauled the roster for new manager Lou Piniella.
