ESPN is reporting that the Cubs have signed Soriano to an 8 year deal worth $136 million.

Wow!!! That’s all that I can think of at this moment.

When we re-signed Ramirez, I figured that it meant we were planning on focusing on the pitching from here on out. I guess I was wrong. This signing would lead me to believe that the Cubs plan to go with Matt Murton and Ryan Theriot as well as some other young guys for the rest of the spots due to money concerns. Then again, the way the Cubs are buying this off-season, can we be certain of anything? I wouldn’t be surprised to read in the next few days that the Cubs have brought in Zito or Carlos Lee as well. Good god Hendry, where have you been all my life? Keep up the good work.
