The White Sox cannot make that kind of promise to him, so I think that if Kenny Williams does trade for him, he would be a fool to give up anything of substance.

Boy the Nats sure screwed themselves in this deal eh.


A team would make a trade for Soriano because they want to win a World Series. Yes, he would probably leave in the offseason. Yes, it would take some quality prospects. But how many chances does a franchise get at winning a World Series?

Remember what Beltran did for Houston in 2004? Do you think the Houston higher-ups regret that deal? Of course not, he took them to their first World Series. And Soriano could do the same thing for another franchise.


Did he? I must have missed that one, whilst I was watching us sweep the Cardinals.


Ouch....okay, he took them to the NLCS.

Still, he carried that team on his back during the playoffs. Without him they wouldn't have sniffed the NLCS, let alone the postseason.

the point of all of this is the sox dont need soriano to win the world series. they could use some bullpen, but selling thier future for a 3 month rental who isnt going to help where we need the help is pointless.

And my point is....how do you know? How do you know they don't need Soriano to win the WS this year? The window is open, why not go get Soriano and increase the odds of winning another WS?

It kinda helps the evaluation of the Beltran trade that the guys they gave up for him pretty much bombed too.

well considering we are the team to beat so far, id say we dont need a blockbuster. us trading away our future also hurts our chances in the future..

im not explaining this anymore, it's common sense.

Yes, because being the "team to beat" on June 23rd guarantees that you will be the team to beat in October.

Whatever you say bud! ;-D

Of course not, but it would improve their odds.....THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT.

Nothing is guaranteed in sports.

Soriano would make 5+ errors a game. He'd hurt you more than help you. No doubt. This is a fantasy trade not a reality baseball trade. :-t

Even if the White Sox traded for Soriano, where would they bat him in the lineup?

1-6 are pretty much set. Do you put Soriano in one of those spots and possibly screw up the chemistry of the #1 ranked offense in mlb?

or do you put him 7-9 where you accept that you're wasting his talents?
