DateQuestionAnswer
2011-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Man id love to see the giants and cubs do a straight up swap of zito for soriano. Im tired of burell, rowand, and ross. A little Soriano is what the Giants need. Man, if I was Sabean Id even throw in a prospect. Im not joking. Then again maybe Soriano wouldnt fit in.
(im a pharoe from giza)
"You think you hate it now...wait until you drive it!" Still power from Soriano & a solid throwing arm, but LF in SF is way bigger than at Wrigley, and I may trust defense in this order for options: 1) Pat Burrell 2) Felipe Alou 3) Soriano (Mike Ferrin)
