10:25 AM ET 05.26 | The reality of the latest weeklong skid staring him in the face and the news of Curtis Granderson's latest injury less than 24 hours old, Alfonso Soriano knew what question was coming before it was asked. "Yeah," Soriano said, he'd be more likely to consider waiving his no-trade rights than he thought he might be a few months ago. "But it depends on them. It depends on what the team wants. A chance to win, that's the most important thing. But it depends on the front office. It's not on me." Soriano rejected a possible trade to the Giants last summer. He said during spring training he was optimistic about the Cubs getting off to a good start and wouldn't consider the possibility of being asked to waive his no-trade rights. And he still says, "It's something that I don't want to think about now. But if it comes up in four or five weeks, maybe I'll think about it."

Wow, the Cubbies are playing just as bad as last year! On pace for another 100 loss season. And now they don't have the Astros to protect them from being last in the NL Central. Just wait until the Cubbies trade a few players! Even Soriano is ready to leave! How much lower will Castro's batting average drop? What's next, Mr. Cub Ernie Banks wanting to change his nickname?

I'd be surprised if the Cubs received any value for Soriano-plus they will eat most of his remaining salary.
