Alfonso Soriano could be the next deal Epstein -- where boarded a plane today flew to Arizona. Where they are expected to talk face to face with Soriano George king of the New York Post saying a deal with the Yankees is close. Yet her lawyer saying that -- MLB network radio. It's not as close as is being portrayed were talking to a number of teams. Not a Cubs are expected with 126 million or so left the video to eat like 95%. Of the money yeah. That's. I have no problem that because I think it turns the page. Think closes the books on the previous review. That's exactly what it does that mean that that's that signifies that everything else is -- from the illusion is now gone for the most part and you're moving forward you've got no use for him going forward let's face it. And if you really wanna get if you're looking to clear -- spot for somebody else this is and you're gonna get another prospect -- not gonna get a great prospect let's face it but. I don't think the Yankees and the great ones to give right now do you -- it doesn't seem like an -- I don't know but. Look you're spending the money other way yeah so caught would you rather spend it on bringing something back in return that can maybe help you in the few future instead of just paying the rest of Soriano to stand out there in left field didn't. Making more as the -- takes me is this happening catcher and I've ever. Yeah you're right though it's the next chapter it's moving for like he'd been doing for so long and even their third that. They're Wrigley Field -- -- closing you know so they're closing the looks on a lot of things not as well he you know eat the money and move on and it's the best thing there. What -- can get firmer I think is probably. A middling prospect I would agree that -- earn enough products yeah that's better than nothing even they are needed considerable amount of salary. It is and if you want to look at junior -- more whoever else they're they're gonna wanna bring up just to take a look at. If they're looking ahead -- next year in the figure one of their young guys is ready clears a spot now they don't have to worry about. Going through the same thing with story on action in the last year of his deal is here early on to the move and afterwards so. Probably the Smart thing at this point out for the -- cutting something form and you have to think we're feeling jet flying to Arizona something must be closer they would not taken that trip.
