Cubs Will Give Soriano To Yankees
Posted By Sports Talk Florida Rumors On February 24, 2013 @ 9:39 PM In MLB,News and Rumors | No Comments
 Alfonso Soriano is the name on everyone’s lips, even though he still has two very expensive seasons left on his contract. Also, he wields a no-trade clause and he presumably wouldn’t be happy about shifting to a part-time role once Granderson returns. Soriano was asked about the Yankees possibility by CSN’s Patrick Mooney today: ”If they call for me, I have to think about it because I don’t want to take a quick reaction and say yes or no.”
The Cubs would presumably cover a heavy portion of the $38 million left on Soriano’s deal in order to move him, but still, even taking on $5 million or so for 2014 would hurt the Yankees as they try to get under the luxury tax. For a one-month Granderson replacement, he wouldn’t make much sense.
