I've just wanted to use the phrase "Crikey, Crockett" since he joined the MB.

What type of return would you guess the cubs would get in return? I'm looking over the Yankees prospects and not too many choices: How about Banuelos or Betances, Tyler Austin, and Adam Warren be too much? not enough? about right?

I fear they will try to push one of their so/so players on us, I guess they could also give up draft picks. I would think a third team would be needed, which might be why the twins are connected to all this...

You have to remember that the Yankees 1st round picks aren't the same as the Twins 1st round picks.

And you both have to remember that draft picks aren't tradable.*

*with the exception of the small handful of competitive balance lottery picks starting in 2013.

I am sure this will gradually change. By 2020 I predict that the NL will have the DH, all draft picks will be tradeable and the Cubs fans will still be haunted by the image of Soriano "running" around in left field.

Don't tell me he got an extension.

I didn't want to tell you this but in 2015, MLB finds an error in the sale of the Cubs to Ricketts, as such the team reverts to Zell and he re-hires Hendry. Hendry then signs Soriano to a life-time contract.

My friend heard zero details about what other team was involved, but his speculation was the Yankees. The update this morning is that the entire front office is empty as all the execs are on the road during the off day.

That will only be because he will be doing that running while drunk and naked celebrating the Cubs World Series win in a few years.

Is that a scarry thought. Not the series part but Soriano Naked in the outfield? What a unplesant image.

I'm such a sucker for trade rumors... My mind is spinning. The only thing if it is the Yanks that worries me is most of their prospects have taken a big dump this year.

I didn't think you could trade draft picks in MLB?

I don't think the Yankees would make that trade.
