I’m 36 years old, so, yeah, I would like to have the opportunity to … if they want to trade me, I hope it is to a team that’s a contender because it’s about trying to go for that ring,” Soriano said before the Cubs’ third consecutive loss. “You want to feel good, feel like maybe you got a chance for that if we don’t have a chance here. But like I said, it depends on them. I don’t control the situation.”
- Javier Baez looks like the real deal. If you don’t believe me then read what CubsDen wrote.
- Ryan Dempster is gaining interest from the Braves according to sources.
- The Phillies have been scouting Bryan LaHair as a possible backup plan for Ryan Howard.
- It is widely expected for the Cubs to take either Albert Almora or Carlos Correa with the 6th overall pick in the draft. I still think there is an outside chance that Kevin Gausman falls to them at 6th.
- The Cubs have two picks in the sandwich round and here are 6 players to watch for those picks at 43 and 56.
=Ty Buttrey RHP from Providence High School
=Mitch Gueller RHP from WF West High School
=Shane Watson RHP from Lakewood High School – If the Cubs somehow get him along with Almora, Correa, or Gausman then mark this as a win for the Cubs draft.
=Lance McCullers RHP from Jesuit High School
=Nolan Sanburn RHP from Arkansas
=Freddy Avis RHP from Menlo High School
Until Next Time….
