    Soriano?

    Supposedly Ruben is kicking the tires on him. He did have a good year last year. 32hrs and batted .262. He is do 36m over the next 2 years. I am sure the Cubs would have to pick up a big chunk of it.

    Harry, I grew up with the phillies and learned the game by your voice. You will always be missed but never forgotten. Though you are no longer with us, you'll never be "outta here" in our hearts!

    I'd rather take my chances on Ruf....unless of course, Ruf is included n the Headley trade...and the cubs eat salary and throw somebody like Campana in. lol

    Pagan
    Utley
    Headley
    Howard
    Soriano
    Rollins
    Campana/Brown
    Ruiz

    Maybe?

    Truthfully though..you could get the same production from Ludwick...and he might be less $$ without giving up any more farm.

    The Cubs really want to dump him. I would pick up half. I am sure the Cubs would be happy. But i would rather see Ruf in LF instead. Soriano is horrible in the LF.

    I'll pass on someone who has a negative dWAR for five straight season.

    Soriano?

    FYI he didn't make one error last year...

    Our greatest glory is not in never failing. But rather in rising back up every time we do.

    False...he had one. Seven in 2010 and 2011, Eleven in 2009...notice a trend.. Judging outfielders by errors is not a good way to determine defensive value...hence dWAR. Errors are just one of many variables.

    You also seem to put a little too much faith in dWAR. A balance of both is the best way to go...

    dWAR is the best way to determine defensive value...how can you put too much faith in that? (in terms of defense) It technically is a balance of every defensive measurable possible.

    Mike Trout had 4 errors last year, Soriano had 1. Who would you rather have in your outfield? Speaking just defensively its not even close. My point is errors dont really tell much whe.n it comes to outfielders defensive skills
