So maybe the Cubs really do want to start winning.
Talk about a busy start to the offseason - Signed: Manager Lou Pinella, Aramis Ramirez, Kerry Wood, Mark DeRosa, and most recently, the crown jewel of the offensive free agent market - Alfonso Soriano to a solid pipe hitting contract: 8 years - $136 million.
He's a superstar, and in Chicago not only is getting paid like one, the fan base will no doubt welcome him with open arms and treat him like one.
He was a solid Yankee but I think it was right he was dealt away for A-Rod - if not for the value of A-Rod, then for the value we are realizing from Robinson Cano.
The Cubs will no doubt be a winning team again with this free agent signing - what are the odds they'll make the playoffs as soon as 2007?
