Texas just sent Michael Young and $10m of his $16m to the Phillies for two middling pitching prospects. Would Soriano come as cheaply from the Cubs? He cannot be any worse defensively than Duda. If Chicago heavily subsidizes the deal isnt it better than signing a free agent for much more than he's worth? BTW Ludwick reportedly resigned with CIN...and these days guys like Pagan get $10m and Victorino gets $23m...wonder what Ludwick got? $10m? Still like Swisher but his price tag keeps going up.
