Should be, but it wasn't.

My understanding is that Castro's error rate has been much lower since the All-Star break. Too bad Barney has taken up the slack.

Seems like Soriano has been playing well lately. Showing ability and hustle and alertness...it makes me sad that he can play like that but did not do so until the season was lost.

I think no Jim Hendry lit a fire under Soriano somehow.
Hes got to have some kind of ego, right?
Imagine sitting on the bench and making the kind of cash he does.
That would be galling for him so, maybe hes got some juice left we dont know about.

I've often wondered about the ego thing. I understand slumps, but the seeming lack of effort has always been a mystery to me.

Since we're stuck with him for three more years I would love nothing more than to see that juice for the entirety of at least one of them!!
