Geovany Soto Likely Traded

Shortly after Reed Johnson's departure from the dugout, Soto said his farewells to the team, too. No word yet where he's going, or the return, but it's believed to be a separate deal than the Reed Johnson trade. Also worth noting, Tgers’ Low-A starting pitcher Thomas Collier was just pulled from his start after going three innings. Though Collier has pitched well this year, you'd hope for a better return for a former Rookie of the Year.

Geovany Soto to DL, Blake Lalli to Chicago

Geovany Soto will have arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and will miss 3-4 weeks. Replacing him until Steve Clevenger is ready, is Blake Lalli, who has been a great organizational asset since 2006. Its good to see him get to the majors at 29.

Geovany Soto actived, Micah Hoffpauir sent down

Micah Hoffpauir will likely be back soon, if not for a September call up.

Coincidence or not, Soto has hit .315 with five home runs and 10 RBIs in 16 games since Joshua...

Coincidence or not, Soto has hit .315 with five home runs and 10 RBIs in 16 games since Joshua arrived. He homered Thursday against Brewers reliever Chris Smith, smacking a 2-0 fastball over the left-field wall.

Please stop blaming the WBC for Soto

As you can see, many who played are doing just fine.  The WBC is not why he looks out of shape and overweight.  To blame the WBC for Soto, makes no sense, just by looking at Lilly or Fukudome to...

What Have You Done For Me Lately (OBP thoughts)

Sports, not just baseball, are built around what a player is doing currently, not last season, or the season before.  We can all sit here and look at the stats of a player over the past "x" years...

I hate this idea, but at the same time...

To consider, for later in the season. Depending on whether or not the latter parties stay healthy, if the Cubs are pushing for the playoffs and the Padres are still looking to reduce their...

Geo's ROY Conference Call

Here's a direct link to the MLB conference call recognizing Geovany Soto as 2008 National League Rookie of the Year. During the call, Geo answers media questions about his big win, his approach to the game, and, of course, the Cubs early exit from the playoffs. He even gives a shoutout to his mentor, Henry Blanco. Note how the call moderator keeps mispronouncing Gordon Wittenmyer's name. Also note how one of the reporters actually names Edinson Volquez as a candidate for Rookie of the Year even though Volquez wasn't eligible. ARGH!
