I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that if random stupid guy on internet knows that Soriano isn't as good as he once was that other MLB teams know it too. After all, stupid guy on the internet is, you know, stupid.
Soriano’s first year with the Cubs was 2007. The year before that, he hit 46 home runs and had 95 RBIs. He also played in 159 games in 2006. In 2007, he hit 33 home runs and 70 RBIs. He has averaged playing in only 132 games a year.
Why in bloody christ would you let the secret out? You just told all the other teams what they couldn't possibly have figured out on their own.
He has enough pop left in his swing that an American League team might want to get him and use him as a designated hitter. I don’t think any National League teams would be willing to trade for him because of his defensive misfortunes in left field.
Except for the Giants who, you know, actually did try to trade for him last season, but Soriano declined it.
Soriano is under contract with the Cubs for 2013 and 2014. He will make $18 million each of these last two years.
Even a stupid person gets something right every once in awhile.
Since he has such a short contract, an AL team doesn’t have too much liability if the pick him up for the short-term.
$36 million in the AL apparently equals about $20 million National League dollars. For some reason. I don't know.
Can't we just DFA Rant Sports already? That place is the largest collection of idiots that any non Bleacher Report site has ever seen.
