(AP Photo/John Minchillo) Willie Mays – not bad company at all. The combination of power, speed and consistency is rare and makes players who have it that much more special. The fact that Sori’s been able to accomplish such feats during baseball’s steroid era is impressive. There hasn’t been a whisper about PEDs with him. Dawson, a recent HoF’er,  is probably a good comparison to Soriano. Sori will most definitely pass Dawson in home runs (438)  and stolen bases (314) before he hangs it up. If you look at games played and stats compiled, what Sori has been able to do should be applauded; Dawson played in 2,627 games, compared to Soriano’s current 1,880 games. Their career slash lines are similar – Dawson: .279/.323/.482 to Soriano’s .272/.321/.504. Dawson however, has over 2,700 hits while Soriano currently has 2,022. Dawson also has an MVP to his credit. Soriano is turning back the clock and looking like the guy with seven All-Star game selections and four Silver Slugger awards. If he continues to defy age and history over the next couple of years, we could see Sori end up in Cooperstown. Do you think Alfonso Soriano has a shot at the Hall of Fame? Sound-off in the comments section below.
