Rangers give Soriano for Wang and Cano? Yanks Say No

After Soriano's performance in October a couple years ago, I seriously doubt the Yanks would bring him back. Also, his reluctance to change position would hinder the Yankees desire to move into OF.

Whatever dude. His glove is solid and he hits 280ish with nice power. Exaggerate much?
I agree he doesn't fit into the Yankee system, but he is a perfect fit for the Rangers.

Has he improved a lot since he has been at texas? I havent watched him much, but i remember when he was a yankee he was not good defensively.

Good point, if he had a liquid glove his errors would be way up this year. ;-D

His glove is much improved. Strasil don't you need to attend to one of your 40 teams?

THis is crap. If the Yanks COULD get Soriano for Wangchung and some scrub named Cano's they would do it in a heartbeat. This is just another way for the Stankee brass to boost up their Ricky Ledee type of 3rd tier prospects.

Womack in center?

Throw him in the deal too!

:-? I think some Yankee's fans are overrating Wang and Cano. If I told you Yankee's fans that Cano would develop into a .280 hitter with 40 homerun power and double digit steals, I bet you'd be ecstatic. Well, that's what Soriano is right now. I think that's worth Cano and a guy that projects to be a #3 starter.

Couldn't agree more. The Yankees give up better players/prospects for worse talent all the time; this deal at least makes sense.

shouldnt go by all numbers. you need to actually watch both of them play to get a grasp of why us yankee fans are so high on these two. see in new york, players have to be able to stand the pressure. we're not some hillbilly town with two fans in the crowd. not all players can stand the spotlight. seeing a rookie like wang keep his cool and give you quality starts everytime he goes out there is something special. and cano is still a rookie with a world of potential. who knows maybe he'll be better than soriano. plus soriano is a free agent soon. if the yankees want him they can go sign him then.
