What To Do With Alfonso Soriano


Obviously Alfonso Soriano does not deserve to make $19 million this year or next, or even the following year. If he didn't make so much money then we probably wouldn't need to debate it, but here we are seemingly stuck.

If you were going into a room what would offer him? Would it be a one year or multiple years? At his age I would probably offer him a one year deal worth $4.5 million. Why? He still has some value and well I have to since we are stuck with him until TheoJed locate another team willing to take him on. He doesn't play the greatest defense and according to his Baseball Reference WAR this is about what he was worth last year. He doesn't hit for average, get on base all that much, but his bat still has a little power. How consistent he can remain in this category remains to be seen.

Us as fans miss all the behind the scenes happenings with the Cubs. I would still think that TheoJed have had some conversations about what they can or will do with Soriano. Obviously they can't lower his contract, but they can trade him. I saw an interesting deal proposed on Clubhouse Confidential the other day and thought hey it could happen. The Soriano talk is about 1 min in, right after they propose trading Hanley Ramirez for Miguel Cabrera.

So, what will the Cubs do with Alfonso Soriano? I find it hard to believe he will play out the remaining years on his contract and move onto a new team if he could find a taker. I do feel that TheoJed will find a team to take him, probably in the AL so he can DH. It might take someone getting hurt before a team is in need. Like Fielder signing with Detroit after Victor Martinez goes down.
