1) Garciaparra has been hitting .230 With 15 Runs, 4 HR, and 11 RBIs, Over the last month (87 AB). But more than that he is in a 1/19 slump over the last week. Dont you think with his history and his age that he might be breaking down for the rest of year?
2) Matt Holliday has been batting .231 over his last 91 At Bats with 13R 2HR and 6RBI... For this guy who was a surprise to begin with do you think he's gonna break out of a month long slump and come back? He's also been batting .174 over the last week.
I know Reyes has been Slumping a little, But he's on a very good team and I expect him to hopefully pull out of it and start posting numbers like he was the first half of the season... at the same time Soriano is as hot as ever, he's hitting .330 over the last month and .430 over the last week... and he's probably gonna get traded to a team where he has a chance to post even more RBI's and Runs...
I still have a few days to cancel the trade if I dont feel it, but I did considering the stuff above... Let me know whether you still think i should cancel it or keep it.
PS for those who think Soriano is not at all near Pujols, his numbers are actually kind of close...
HR RBI R SB
SORIANO .287 31 62 75 25
PUJOLS .327 33 86 71 3
