Soriano Would Move to 2b for Manny.

This is very interesting, but unlikely to happen- Link-

Chicago Tribune - After three years in the outfield, Alfonso Soriano says that he'd move back to second base if the Cubs were able to sign free agent Manny Ramirez.

"Sure, why not?" Soriano said. "Our lineup with Manny? Man, it would be kind of like a Yankees lineup."

At this point in time, it appears as though the Cubs are unlikely to land Ramirez.

"Sori is OK with going to second?" Aramis Ramirez said. "Who wouldn't to have Manny Ramirez in their lineup? We already have a good lineup, but if we added him—it would be awesome. But it's a long shot.

To have Manny in the lineup would make us the favorite to win the World Series for sure. There is no way any pitcher would have success pitching against that lineup! Having said that there is a 2% chance of that happening.

Manny 40 HR 40 E
Soriano 40 HR 40 E
We would score a ton of runs so would everyone else.

I think the Cubs may go after gim is his price was down to about 1 year 10-15 million with an option to the 2nd year.
Then I would do it.

Paul sullivan is right , i was thinking the exact same thing, i wrote a story just like this on my blog almost 2 weeks ago. and it does make some since. moving soriano back would allow Manny to Be in left field. It also allows you to make Fontenot And miles back up infielders. but you are probably right it's a very small chance that this happens but, if manny was seriousley intersted in joining the cubs i think Jim Would Have To at least consider it

sounds like an interview that was taken because there is nothing more interesting to talk about.

The Dodgers have sign Olando Hudson to a 1 year 3.4 million with 4.6 in incentives.
what do u think of that and now who would the Cubs go after. I think Nomar but I think he will go the Phillies.
