Soriano signing

With news the Cubs have signed Alfonso Soriano to 8 years/$136 million AND included a no trade clause, we officially have our worst contract of the year.

Of the decade?

Still to be determined, but it will be hard to top. We don't need to get into specifics on why this is a bad idea. Anyone who reads blogs is smart enough to know this is monumentally stupid. We live in a world where Soriano makes more money then Albert Pujols.

If the Cardinals announced they locked up Albert Pujols for 8 years and $136 million I wouldn't bat an eye. But when the player is Soriano, I can't help but laugh.

The Cubs just became the laughingstock of the offseason. They don't know why, but they will!
