Braves Collection: Rafael Soriano

2008 Upper Deck #44 Yeah, Rafael Soriano just looks like a big-time reliever. He's angry, imposing, and never looks happy.  Unfortunately, he has arm problems and his 2008 season was a disaster. (Well, he pitched well enough when available; the problem is he just wasn't available enough.) This year, the back end of our bullpen looks solid if Soriano and Mike Gonzales can stay healthy. As for the rest of the bullpen ... Sure, the solver foil makes it hard to read the name and the team, but a set with good, full bleed photography is almost never bad. This is the first Upper Deck I've ever tried to put together.
