Cubs Should Snag Unhappy Soriano

Alfonso Soriano as a Texas Ranger.I think Phil Rogers has it right in his recent column, the Chicago Cubs should try and snag unhappy Alfonso Soriano from the Washington Nationals. Though Soriano is prone to the strike out, he also has speed and power at second base and would be another great addition to the top of the Chicago Cubs’ lineup. I say go for it Jim Hendry!


Ken Williams and Sox Should Thank Frank Thomas

Ken Williams should be thanking Frank Thomas NOT bad mouthing him!I recently wrote a post about how I felt Frank Thomas was shafted by the Chicago White Sox. Ironically, I just heard an interview with Ken Williams attacking Frank Thomas for the way Thomas has been talking to the media about the way the White Sox handled his departure. If did not want Thomas to be a part of the Sox then, as GM of the White Sox, he should have traded Big Frank years ago. Instead he ranted about by saying:

“He’s an idiot, he’s selfish … He’d better stay out of White Sox business.”

I could not believe Ken Williams’ classless rant. This is the same Ken Williams that used Frank Thomas for years to draw fans to Sox games when they could not sell enough tickets to fill a shoebox high school gym. With the Sox winning big last season, Ken Williams has a chip on his shoulder and no longer has a use for the veteran, future Hall Famer, thus discarded him like garbage. Ken Williams and the should really be thanking Frank Thomas for all the rough years that the two-time MVP endured – regardless of what Frank Thomas has to say to the media.
