Mon, 25 Feb 2013|
The SportsTalk Live panel debates whether the Cubs and Alfonso Soriano should stick together, and whether the Yankees can afford the left fielder - 2/25
I thought so Soriano. Has had numerous opportunities to tell the media yeah I'd be willing to go so we're trying to win a championship football he keeps saying and I was out there last week is. I wanna win here I don't wanna go anywhere they bring you right -- right listen but I really would like to stay with the Cubs. Carlos Pena two years ago in September the Yankees said the trade for reform but. Not rather stay with the Cubs were on the losing 96 dates with -- why you guys are so comfortable at Wrigley. That they wanna stay rather than go try to win a -- Are you comfortable rhythm and can hit that these mr. cub now is -- -- until I mean like you're done there's spring trying to use. He's at it it's like up a metamorphosis I mean this is a guy who was hated hated -- five years ago and now he's he's the the grandfather he's -- guy and he's the guy and if he thinks they're gonna win any time in his lifetime -- baseball lifetime he says he's out of his mind all -- everybody hears it's interesting next year in 2014 you've got a better shot Cubs or yankees. Here's okay honestly can the Yankees might be a last place team as -- -- he's our fourth place team at best on paper right now another division here's the thing will be a cure all. -- a lot of the money out of the Steinbrenner is give a crap anymore this is a little subtext of all of a sudden here's a -- bigs. But at the you know we've given so much due to Soriano put up with so much it's -- for him to go if it's he's asked to call. They -- the kindness to Chicago. Make room gets so funny -- that some money and they'd give up that. That's why I you know won the World Series and I asked -- the question you were there I couldn't figure that's when I couldn't figure out right and I figured it was gravel over knocked on the Giants know. But it's not it's not how I would live my life if I had an opportunity. Derrek Lee turned it down and then and then decided to go to Atlanta right and the other -- -- -- stated it's happened a lot. -- I would I would want a chance to win without it especially when those guys skates when it was like a month but. They've earned their right for this and this and lunch or not Ryan Dempster you don't say yes and then know when they come back Q a week later than -- are allowed to do whatever you want. Includes Shea in the -- -- always. I don't care about the money I've made my money I just want the ring. So it's kind of refreshing to see you guys -- I don't care about the rating of one another -- because you'll never went with the Cubs in bringing up the Yankees that's. That's Syria are specious argument that they've won 27 World Series -- about now Cubs won one bit. They're not throwing good money after bad anymore and make the Yankees have four -- five years ago would have made it would have tried to make a Soriano trade yesterday when granderson gets hurt. Not just going to withstand his -- along with all these other laws -- not he wants -- yeah but the other -- is I don't think there and overspending evil empire -- and I anymore they're not motivated most by the ring. The judge says they're the evil empire okay -- Darth -- -- into the evil empire. -- worst guy in the Yankees whose. How the game tear on his man got a bigger got to -- --
