03:54 AM ET 10.06 | There are several repeating themes that tend to occur during any particular Chicago Cubs offseason. There is almost always criticism of the Chicago Cubs front office; there is a negative reaction to one specific move that the team made during the winter; and trade rumors involving left fielder Alfonso Soriano remain existent throughout the entirety of the offseason. It did not take too long for trade rumors regarding Alfonso Soriano to surface. While no specific Major League Baseball team has yet to express interest in the Cubs left fielder, on Wednesday, Soriano admitted that he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause if the Cubs were not ready to compete for the World Series title by 2014. The 36-year-old Soriano indicated that he would like at least one more opportunity at winning the World Series.

QUOTE(#2):

Maybe the Dodgers will be willing to take this lazy #$*( off the Cubbies' hands.

Rumor was LA tried to trade for him this year, but he vetoed it. Now LA has Ethier, Kemp and Crawford in the OF, no room for Soriano,

Playoffs are not in the Cubs future by 14 and you know it. The only way you are leaving Chicago is if the Cubs trade you and pay the biggest part of your salary to that team.
