Evening Alfonso Soriano Update: “Large Gap” Exists in Talks, Soriano Would Need Time to Consider Trade (UPDATES)
It became clear quickly that the overnight “close” report was overstated, and now we could be looking at a long process.
Travis Wood will start a second half streak of quality starts, yes?
Obsessive Wrigley Renovation Watch: Zoning Committee Approves; Bridge Scrapped, 10-Year OF Sign Moratorium in Place
The penultimate hurdle has been cleared, though it took some additional bending.
Hoyer tells MLBN Radio that, when it comes to Soriano, “nothing [is] close at all.” The front office will be speaking to Soriano soon about trade issues.

The deal hasn’t been announced officially, but it is merely pending physicals at this point.
