Soriano showed with that decision all I needed to know about how knowledgable he is. We don’t need his type around here.

We’re a much better team without him…this season and next! We have our outfield.

His team is in full rebuild and he says no to moving to a contender? Wow…That says all you need to know about him.

I can remember at least a couple games where you single handedly gave it away to us. Also, I’m we weren’t the only ones. I don’t know how the Cubs will ever move this guy with his salary, and this is an up year for him on offense/defense. Unless then end up paying damn near all his salary. I read something like, right now he is more than half of their committed payroll towards next years payroll. No sour grapes from me though, Cubbies can keep him.

His only appeal would be that the Cubs would have to pay most of the freight and he’d be cheap production.

Enjoy losing, you got a few more years of that before your career is over.
