    Patrick Mooney:

    Soriano wants to finish his career in Chicago, still doesn't like the weather in SF.

    Hoyer on Soriano: "He's our left fielder."

    That's only 1 side of it though. Garza has been unwilling to take a yearly discount in exchange for security up until now, just 1 year before he would get a huge deal. And I think he knows his arm better than anyone else.

    Yeah the Cubs are on the verge of being fined on this. Apparently they are working on multiple 2 for 1 type trades to clear the space, but they haven't materialized. I'm not really sure what they are though.

    Also I'm not sure I like the changes on with PSD. Can someone sell me on the benefits why the site was changed?

    I've gotten more and more used to the site over the past few days. Thanks again for the info, it's always much appreciated.

    My guess is it could be holding up a Hairston signing. He's supposedly making a decision this week, but nothing has been mentioned by anyone.

    And then we would need to open 2 spots on the 40-man.

    Garza said he's feeling "1000 times better I did last year" on CTL.

    Cub fans at their best.

    RT @Aisle424: Tony Campana with a bigger ovation than Starlin Castro. This is why we can't have nice things.
    I hate our fan base.

    He isn't exciting. Exciting baseball players are good at baseball.

    According to both sources, the Diamondbacks asked for two-time All-Star Starlin Castro in return for Upton. The Cubs, who are trying to build a solid base of young players in their somewhat depleted system, balked at trading a 22-year-old shortstop for a 25-year-old right fielder and cut off talks.

    Upton, who has been offered around baseball in trade conversations since the winter meetings in December, vetoed a trade to the Seattle Mariners 10 days ago. While the Diamondbacks appear to want to deal him, general manager Kevin Towers said last week that they expect quality in return.

    "We are not interested in giving away any of our young talented players," Towers said last Saturday at the Professional Scouts Foundation dinner in Los Angeles. "My job is to get the best players in order to win championships here in Arizona. That said, someone will have to give us equal value if we move one of our top players."
    http://espn.go.com/chicago/mlb/story...in-upton-trade

    Towers has to say this though the question I have is if he believes it. There is no chance in hell that he is going to get equal value for Upton.
    French writer Alexis de Tocqueville warned about when visiting this fledgling democracy in the early 19th century that this "American republic will endure until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money."
