Please Trade Alfonso Soriano

When the Cubs signed Alsonso Soriano prior to the 2007 season I was really excited.  He had just posted a 40 HR/40 SB season.  Things have not worked out as I had hoped but Soriano still has value in the right situation.  He is still capable of hitting 25 HRs in a season and would make a good DH/OF for an American League team.  I know that Cubs still owe $18 Million a year through 2014, but I hope Theo & Jed are able to eat a majority of that contract and trade him.  It would open up a spot for Brett Jackson hopefully.  We already have Marlon Byrd and newly signed David DeJesus in our outfield.  I think we need to find a way to get this done before the season starts.

    I’m sure they’ve tried. Hell, even Hendry probably tried. But he’s not very good and he’s not particularly known to be a “hard worker” or “team oriented” guy. Look at what his influence did to Starlin! He might make a decent DH, but he would not make a good OF. He has already proven that. Honestly, I can’t think of any team that really needs just a DH.

      Jeff, you are right on all accounts, but he still has power and if the Cubs eat his contract like they did Zambrano I think some team would take the risk to add the power. Maybe I am hoping too much though.
