Joakim Soria Needs a Better Agent

After another scoreless ninth, there's no reason not to resume the Soria discussion from last night.-RR



In twelve thirteen innings pitched this season, Joakim has allowed three hits, walked one, and struck out fifteen. He has not allowed a run. As I listened to the 9th in my truck tonight, I was struck with a bittersweet realization: what Soria is doing, literally, cannot be topped and won't last forever. What we're seeing is an extremely rare level of brilliance. I hope we enjoy it as long as it lasts.

He should be getting five times the media attention and blog & fan devotion that Banny has received, not the other way around.

Call me weird, but a guy who is just totally dominant is always going to be more compelling to me than a guy who gives a good quote.
