Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano hit his fourth home run in Monday's series opener against the Rockies. He took starter Juan Nicasio deep for a two-run shot in his first at-bat. Soriano also added a double and finished 2 for 4 in a 9-1 win. The 37-year-old is batting .340 (16 for 47) in his last 12 games with three homers and 10 RBI.
“Despite hitting 32 HRs and 108 RBIs for the pathetic Cubs in 2012. They want to get rid of Alfonso at all costs nesscary. The Cubs are building for the future, and Soriano is a bat that teams will give up great prospects for. It makes sense, just know that there will be trade winds blowing around his ear all season. Eventually he will get traded, and eventually he will still be a 30 HR player no matter the situation. Lights/Camera/Action.”
