    We have Chicago to blame for that. Fans started crying as soon as he was signed, and it only got worse. With certain media members (COUGHkaplan) badmouthing him as a lazy deadbeat.

    I understand the thought process behind that...but we are already going to pay 36M regardless so getting a young, cost controlled asset with plus upside like garcia is worth paying the hit IMO.

    What happens when Soriano regresses or blows out his acl in spring training?..you get nothing..at least with a cost controlled asset you turn your money into something potentially with garcia.

    I really am concerned about soriano's injury risk with that knee. He chose to not have surgery...if its degenerative then the structure has to be weak since he played with that injury/pain all last year

    Yup. If I were a fan of another team and found out we traded for Soriano, my initial reaction would probably be to take a steel catheter and shove it right up my ****.

    If it hasn't already been posted, in support of what Marlin Bystro wrote, here's Levine's update:

    The Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies discussed the parameters of a deal involving Alfonso Soriano, but there is nothing going on between the two teams presently, according to two major league sources.

    The sources said the Cubs would have received pitching in return for the veteran outfielder. One source said the conversation initially took place a month ago as the Cubs seek relief from the $38 million that remain on Soriano’s contract.

    ...

    Jayson Stark reported earlier on Tuesday that the Phillies were initially uninterested in Soriano. Stark also said Philadelphia may change their mind in the near future, but a trade between the two is a long shot at this point.


    I heard you were looking for me.

    If the Phillies were willing to trade Brown for LaHair in the beginning of the season, then that is a friendly indication of just how much Brown's value has fallen. I'd say that even Colvin has more value than Brown right now.

    I don't believe the Phillies were willing to do that, which is why Brown is not a Cub. I think it was the Cubs willing to trade LaHair for Brown.

    I wouldn't go that far, and if you're being fair, Colvin got shipped to the exact line up and ball park where his K or HR swing or bust can work.

    We're stuck w/ Soriano until probably June/ July 2014. He'd have to have a healthy, power-heavy first half next season for anyone to maybe seriously bite on him and also bring us something of decent value back.

    Agreed.
