2008 Community Projections: Alfonso Soriano

New, 53 comments

Regardless of where you think he should hit in the batting order, you know that, assuming Alfonso Soriano is healthy (and from all accounts, he is, even though we have heard he's taking it slow so far), he'll play in 156+ games (he's done that five of the last seven years).

So, what will he do in 2008? In addition to the categories we've done for other players, let's project SB/CS for Soriano, too.

I say..

AB: 665
R: 111
H: 196
2B: 44
3B: 3
HR: 39
RBI: 96
BB: 45
SO: 155
SB: 22
CS: 8
AVG: .295
OBA: .339
SLG: .546
