08:17 AM ET 10.16 | Having said as much before the season ended, Alfonso Soriano will be ready for the trade rumors this coming winter. So should we expect Soriano to be on the trade block again, or has the new regime come to believe Soriano can be part of the organization in the early stages of the rebuilding mode? It probably depends on how much interest there is in Soriano, who led the team in home runs and RBIs while making great strides in his defensive play in left field. The best chance of dealing Soriano is if an American League team wants to use him as a DH. ... "If teams pursue him in a trade, we'll consider it," [Cubs President Theo Epstein] said. "We'll see if it makes our future better, makes us a better organization going forward."

" Dear Theo, I have this kid Alex, he plays third base, and best of all he is under contract for the next five years, so you do not need to worry about getting into a bidding war to keep him. Give me a call. Regards, Brian"

If the cubs were willing to eat a good portion of his contract, he would make a great AL DH. He still puts up pretty good numbers at the plate. Tampa Bay?

Yep, they are sitting next to the phone waiting for ANYONE to call them.

Cubs had him traded to LA at the deadline, but he vetoed it with his 10/5 rights. Last thread was that he was willing to take a trade now, so maybe the Cubs can try again.
