The Chicago Cubs must trade Alfonso Soriano before other teams realize just how far he has fallen since he became a Cub. – stupid stuff found on internet
I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that if random stupid guy on internet knows that Soriano isn't as good as he once was that other MLB teams know it too. After all, stupid guy on the internet is, you know, stupid.
Soriano’s first year with the Cubs was 2007. The year before that, he hit 46 home runs and had 95 RBIs. He also played in 159 games in 2006. In 2007, he hit 33 home runs and 70 RBIs. He has averaged playing in only 132 games a year.
Why in bloody christ would you let the secret out? You just told all the other teams what they couldn't possibly have figured out on their own.

While it is nice to win spring training games, the Chicago Cubs are much more worried about evaluating players’ performances than wins and losses this spring.

We just held our ticket draft last night and there is no way I'm going to use ALL of my allotted tickets this year, so I thought I'd give you fine people a shot at tickets for face value with no Ticketmaster fees.
My seats are now in Aisle 409 Row 5, and I think they actually are the best value in the park (if there is such a thing anymore) since it costs about 25% more to...

I just want to preface this post by saying, you haven’t read a Cubs season preview post until you’ve read our Cubs 2011 season preview post. It could be the Cubs preview post every year, and it should be. But I don’t want anyone to accuse me of laziness other than my wife–so I’m going to give you a real Cubs preview instead of just telling you about how much the Cubs fans...
