K-Rod, Soriano remain free agents; do the Mets need a veteran arm?

The New York Mets’ projected bullpen has the potential to be ranked among the league’s best come the end of the season. But baseball, like life, makes no promises. Especially when talking about relievers. While the club’s premier flame-throwers may perform well enough to look back and deem this writing useless, there remains the possibility that the team will need a veteran...

Soriano Blows Lead, Nats Lose To Phillies In Extras

It looked like the Washington Nationals (79-60) had the win in the bag after a nearly flawless outing from Stephen Strasburg, an explosive offensive performance and a five run lead. Until all of that melted away into a blown save by Rafael Soriano, a nearly silenced offense and a 9-8 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies (65-75). In the ninth inning, Soriano entered with the score at...

Washington Nationals: What to do about the closer role

From the beginning of 2013 until now, Rafael Soriano has been the closer for the Washington Nationals. After a rough start to the second half of the season, however, his future in this role appears to be in doubt.

Giving Rafael Soriano Credit Where It’s Due

Like many Washington Nationals fans, I’ve been fairly brutal toward Rafael Soriano this season. I certainly harbor some left over frustration about his lackluster 2013 season, and any time he allows a walk or a runner to reach base, I have a “here we go again” mentality. So, I decided to look into his numbers to see if there was any logical reasons for this thought process...
