Assessing values of Soriano, other Cubs

While the baseball world awaits a resolution on the annoying Alex Rodriguez situation (like the Ryan Braun saga, it’s not likely to end well), the New York Yankees have reportedly been trying to acquire another right-handed bat, one certainly familiar with the Bronx. Chicago Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano is clearly a different player than he was a decade ago when as a second baseman he achieved consecutive 30-homer, 30-steal seasons in pinstripes, but this remains a valuable, somewhat misunderstood player and fantasy option.
