Today on the MLB.com Giants website they suggested that the club trade Noah Lowry that is just coming off some arm issues but he would have to have a good spring and show he is healthy before they trade him or Sanchez.
The Giants are looking for a big power bat to put in their lineup which lacks pop. The Cubs currently have some big bats in their lineup and are looking at some pitching( it also helps that the Cubs are looking to shed some money so they can get a leadoff guy or Peavy). What I would suggest is the Cubs call the Giants and see if they would want Soriano and most of his outrageous contract for Lowry. I would give the Cubs a lefty in the rotation or trade bait for a guy like Peavy. Not to mention that the Cubs would get rid of the majority of his outrageous contract and would allow them to pursue a guy like Abreu, Dunn, or Manny for LF.
I personally think Soriano has great trade value and the time to trade him is now because he is getting up there in age. The one thing that could be a sticking point is Soriano's no trade protection and the fact of how much we would have to pay of his contract.
Do not get me wrong, I do like Soriano but if we can get Peavy/Lowry and replace him with a Dunn in LF, I would be all for a deal to trade him.
