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!

Are The Chicago Cubs For Sale?

Are the Chicago Cubs For Sale?The Tribune Company owns the Chicago Cubs and has acknowledged the speculation that has swirled for months about the Cubs potentially being for sale. Gary Weitman, a Tribune spokesman was quoted recently (March 18, 2006) in a Chicago Tribune report saying:

“The Cubs are not for sale.”

However, I have found some contradictory opinions in these posts on CubsNet.com and 1060west.



Does Clemens Dream Of Being A Texas Ranger?

Roger Clemens paid the complex a “nonchalant” visit today. Is the Rocket looking to play for a new team, the Texas Rangers? According to an ESPN.com report Clemens’ has family and friends in the area and was quoted as saying:

“We’ll see what happens. Whatever, I plan to be around Arlington a lot in the future.”

Now that quote could be taken out of context since Roger could just be planning to visit his friends and family “a lot in the future”. Though, the Rangers’ rotation which currently consists of Kevin Millwood, Adam Eaton, Vicente Padilla, Kameron Loe, and Juan Dominguez would be a lot better with Roger Clemens. Not to mention, I could see Roger ending his career as a Texas Ranger since it mimics the conclusion of Nolan Ryan’s career and just seems like the way to end a Hall of Fame career for a Texas born star.
