Alfonso Soriano is NOT overpaid--HARDBALL TIMES Alfonso Soriano is a popular totem for the failures of the Cubs' Jim Hendry era, and he often is considered the quintessential scapegoat of excessive free agent spending by "old school" general managers who valued guts and brand names over aging curves, walk rates and other modern sabermetric standards. He is routinely ranked among the worst contracts in baseball (did I miss any major media outlets there?). If Vernon Wells' contract was tradeable, what did that say about the unmoveable Soriano? Heck, even I have been guilty of Soriano contract bashing from time to time. But you know something? The more I research the matter, the less I am convinced that Soriano is an "overpaid bum." Let's examine the facts.

During 'My City of Ruins" Bruce asked if we were missing somebody. A lone spot light shined on Ronnie's Flag. Very Classy by Bruce !!! Numerous mentions to the crowd on the rooftop as well. Hopefully this weekend Bruce will eradicate all the ghost and curses at Wrigley. Go Cubs Go !!! First Springsteen concert in “78” First Cubs game in “80” First World Series “hopefully in my lifetime”

Jeff Baker dealt to Tigers for two PTBNL

Jeff Baker dealt to Tigers for two PTBNL

Tigers acquired INF-OF Jeff Baker from the Cubs in exchange for two players to be named later. A career .304/.352/.516 hitter against left-handed pitching, Baker will give the Tigers some versatility off the bench. He's capable of playing first, second and third base, as well as both corner outfield positions.

"The Franchise" on Showtime

"The Franchise" on Showtime

If you haven't seen the show, The Franchise on Showtime, I suggest checking it out. It's a documentary that follows a MLB team, similar to Hard Knocks with the NFL on HBO. This season it is on the Miami Marlins. Last night's episode focused on the Cubs/Marlins series last week and the return of Ozzie and Big Z back to Chicago. Check it out. It airs every Wednesday night at 9pm Central time.

From: Jeff Garlin To: Kate Bennert What struggle sister? The only thing I'm struggling with is how bad the cubs are. You clearly don't like me because what you wrote was clearly forced to make look bad. By the way I'm a huge deadspin fan so I know when something is as forced as your story. I'm glad you attached the video. I think it's funny. Love, Jeff
