    Alfonso Sorianio

    Recently DFA'd and going to clear waivers.  No one is touhing that contract, even for half a year.


     


    I was wondering if the Sox would try to sign him after he clears for a pro-rated minimum.  His OPS this season is .611.  This is actually worse than every Sox outfielder except Bradley (.607).  Even Grady Sizemore (.612) had a higher OPS granted not by much.


     


    Hope they pass...

    Just in case your wondering he has .295 career avg in Fenway. Not same player though. Enjoy retirement.

    Re: Alfonso Sorianio

    Exactly.  That average is mostly from a long time ago, and he hasn't played very many regular season games at Fenway since he left the American League in 2005.  Not much that happened in 2005 is relevant today...

    No. The Yankees aren't hitting well either, if he was worth keeping he'd be in NY.

    Cubs are finally out of that contract after this year. I think their highest paid guy is Castro at 6 million next year, they should have a ton to spend going into Off-Season.
    Theo will be jumping for joy.

    I doubt there is any intention  of signing Soriano. He looks to be finished.

    Stabbed by Foulke.

    I would think that Soriano would want to play for a contender.  He is contemplating retirement, so I'm not sure he would want to come back and play for a team that has a small chance of making the playoffs.

    Red sox will pass him.  He is 38 years old!!   if he is five years younger, I would consider him.  

    Plus he is now a horrible OF defender.  Cant imagine playing LF in any opponent ball park other than playing at Fenway Park.

    Take a pass on him.  If Sox are getting back into the pennant race with in two to three weeks, they ll make a move and try to get a good young hitting OF as well he can play defense.

    Soriano will probably sign with the Mariners. He's more likely to be an asset to Seattle than Johnny Damon (who the Mariners have considered). Maybe he'd like to be re-united with Cano and contend for a wild card.

    If he comes here they really need to pat him down. Yanks might be distancing themselves.

    He will be. His lineup should be as follows:

    C Wellington Castillo

    1B Rizzo

    2B Arismendy Alcantara

    SS Starlin Castro

    3B Kris Bryant (Rookie of the year prediction)

    LF FA

    CF Javier Baez

    RF FA

    P Jake Arrietta

    P Lester

    P Scherzer

    Other than Castro and Rizzo, the Cubs will have a lineup loaded with guys making the minimum. They could load up on pitching and still have a payroll under $120M.

    Reclamation project. Sounds like a SOX signing to me.

    Why would the the 39-50 Red Sox sign Soriano and play him at the expense of JBJ, Betts, Holt?

    A lot of the posts look like what was being posted when Drew was being discussed;  never happen, bad avg., slumped in the playoffs, etc.  I'll bet Ben is all over this guy.  Is he a Boras guy?
