What makes you think A-Rod would be on the Cubs.

And a .330 OBP to go along with it.

I mean come on, why would you make a whole lineup filled with guys just swinging for the fences? Does this make sense to anyone? At least last year they tried something different with Pierre but that blew up in their face so now they are going back to trying to hit 5 solo shots a game. :-P


Pierre had the most hits in the NL


He also had the most AB's, and I believe he had the lowest batting average for someone with 200 hits in the history of the game.

That .330 OBP is pretty pathetic too.

If I had a choice, I'd take Soriano (at $14 or $15 million a year) over A-Rod (at $16 million a year plus the loss of whatever it takes to get him in a trade).

I wouldn't. I'd still take Arod over Soriano if money is not an issue (and trust me, money is not an issue for the Scrubbies).

I agree but that's only cause I think it would take C-Zam to get A-Rod in a trade. If it was just salary I'd easily give the extra million or 2 to get A-Rod over Soriano.

I predict Soriano is wearing a SF Giants uniform next year.

I keep hearing that the Yankees would want Zambrano in any Arod trade, so if it's a choice between having Zambrano and Soriano or just having Arod, I'll take Zambrano and Soriano.

Yeah, I mean it really depends what they'd have to give up for A-Rod. I'd MUCH, much rather have A-Rod on my team that Soriano, but if I sign Soriano all I lose is money, whereas if I trade for A-Rod I not only am paying him just as much but I'm also probably giving up some good prospects.

the cubs have some money to spend and they want to make a splash. they lost in the ratings to the white sox and that made the owners a little unhappy. soriano is the kind of big splash they need to get people watching again. doesnt matter if he is the best fit for the team or not. he isnt exactly a bad player either.
