Christmas has arrived nearly a month early for Cubs fans with the signing of free agent Alfonso Soriano. A historical record was set for the Cubs with the reported $136 million contract over 8 years.
When Jim Hendry announced that the he and the Tribune were committed to building a better team, he wasn’t kidding. The Chicago Cubs are pretty much saying, that in 2007 they mean business. The NL Central has changed.
Now they just need to get some starting pitching and the pieces will start coming together.
Aflonso, welcome to The Friendly Confines! We’re glad you came!
