Alfonso Soriano placed on Waivers

Postby sox 06 » Wed Aug 16, 2006 5:31 pm

From CBS Sportsline:

News: Alfonso Soriano is in the waiver process, according to FoxSports.com. There will be a two-day period in which teams will be able to file a claim to prepare a trade. The waivers process is no guarantee the Nats want to trade Soriano, because they can pull the waivers back. Many teams pass their high-priced players through.

Analysis: There is some reason to think the Nats might consider a trade still, which could worry some NL-only Fantasy owners that stand to lose a player to the other league. The coming weeks in AL-only waivers could be interesting. Don't burn FAAB dollars or waiver picks right now if you could have a Soriano become available. With or without a trade, Soriano is a must-start Fantasy superstar in all leagues

Old news, plus plenty of other big names have been placed on there as well. Rotoworld reported this last night and said that he will more than likely be dealt in the offseason if at all.

Most big name players get placed on waivers. Especially if they have a big contract.

Wonder if DET's loss of Polanco for the year and recent offensive struggles changes their level of interest in Soriano?

The Soriano for Maybin deal the Nats proposed a few weeks ago must be looking at least a little more attractive at this point.

I would think that Chicago would put a claim on him before Detroit ever got the chance just to keep him from going to the Tigers.

I doubt Rotoworld said he'd be dealt in the offseason since this is simply not possible. He becomes a FA after the season, thus the Nats don't hold his rights any longer and could not trade him.

no way in hell...D Town doesnt have the payroll to make such a move. Kenny Williams wouldnt let that happen either.

polanco is a big loss for them, i am hoping for another sweep next week and make our run for the division! 9-3 against the tiggers this year...we own them ;-D
Vaughn: What's that sh*t on your chest?

Harris: Crisco, Bardol, Vagisil. Any one of them will give you another two to three inches drop on your curve ball.

He is not expensive at all, if you claim him you only have to pay for the rest of the year which is like 1 or 2 million. That is hella cheap.

its still highly unlikely, the tigers made their move with aquiring Casey. who is doing very well by the way..

Yeah, I have to agree...Soriano is actually a bargain given his production this year. No way he clears waivers and I'd say that pretty much every big-market team still in the hunt that has payroll space will put in a claim on value alone.
