But I'll say it again for Alfonso Soriano, I guess.
He's kicking ass and taking names for the Yankees right now.
Somewhere in this Daily News article is a quote from Angels manager Mike Soscia, who said of Soriano: "He's had a good month these last two games."
Soscia's been watching him knock in 13 runs the last couple games against his team.
The Yanks meanwhile have won 4 in a row and are currently 5 games out of the Wild Card.
And while we all hate the Yankees, you can't ever count 'em out.
Why in the world did it take Alfonso so long to agree to the trade?
Anyway, good for him.
Meanwhile in Boston, Ryan Dempster is 6-8 with a 4.5 ERA... Scott Feldman is 2-3 with the Orioles...Matt Garza is 2-1 with the Rangers while team mate and backup catcher Geovany Soto is hitting .214 with a .712 OPS, in Atlanta Reed Johnson is .269 with a .696, and in 9 total innings Carlos Marmol has given up 10 hits, 6 BB, 1 homer, and improved his ERA from a Cubby 6.44 to a Dodgery 5.4.
And in the other meanwhile, the Cubs got swept by the Reds at Wrigley, getting shut out 5 zip yesterday.
They can't lose today since it's a day off, but next up?
The Cards are coming to town.
