Chicago Cubs Splurge

Alfonso Soriano

Alfonso Soriano is now a Chicago Cub and also one of the richest players in Major League Baseball. The Cubs gave Soriano the fifth largest contract in MLB history at $136 million for eight years. I generally start getting dizzy at the thought of someone getting paid that much money to play a sport, but this time it didn’t happen. I actually felt like the clouds parted and the sun shined down on Wrigley Field and all Cubs fans. Chicago needs help in a big way and Soriano is one of the most solid offensive weapons in the League. I have personally been a Cub fan since childhood and other than a shooting star year here and there they pretty much have stunk. Alfonso is one huge step in the right direction along with the recent re-signings of Aramis Ramirez and Kerry Wood. In this world of high paid players not many are worth this type of cash, but I have to admit Soriano is a player who truly is top notch.
