Soriano still thriving at 36

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Alfonso Soriano (3-for-5) drove in two runs to reach 101 RBI, the third time in his career to get at least 100 and now within his career mark of 104 in 2005 with Texas.
``It would be better if we had a winning record, but now everyone is trying to have fun in the last two weeks of the season,'' Soriano said.
``If anyone watches how he goes about his work every day, his work ethic, always with a smile on his face, and with the [sore] knees he has,'' manager Dale Sveum said. ``If any of these young guys think they're hurting and see what this guys goes through every day to play--a guy making $18 million and still going out and working hard every day.
``Other than his 40-40 season [46 homers and 41 steals in 2006], it's as good a season as he's had,'' he said. ``Not too many 36 year olds have this kind of season.''
