Cubs looking to unload Soriano

4

As we all brace to lose Cuddyer and dread trying to figure out what RHB can replace the void he and Elmon left behind, would it be a reasonable chioce? He has a career triple slash of .274/.323/.506 which would be godlike among our lineup last year and even Soriano's nothing-to-write-home-about .244/.289/.469 (26 dingers if that matters to you) last year would have been a welcome addition. He's due $54 big ones over the next three years, but if we get the Cubs to eat $10 per year, that would be $8MM/year for a bat (and glove) comparable to The Cuddler. I'm no expert on what if would take to trade for him, but seeing what the Cubs paid for Garza it may be within the realm of feasibility that we could trade a Slowey/Blackburn type. So what say you, yea or nay? What would you trade for him? How much salary would they have to eat?
