I really don't have much of an objection to this. I'd really love to see the Cubs ditch Soto. I'm not sure if it's his Jeckyl/Hyde seasons or if it's his dumbass facial hair, but I've seen enough of him.
I am very skeptical the Colvin deserves anything other than a spot on a middling Japanese team (*cough cough Hoffpauir cough). I'd also not mind seeing what Burnett could do away from NY, but isn't he signed all the way through 2013? That's taking on an awful lot -- even in exchange for Zambrano -- and I think the Yanks would have to send along a few buckets of cash to make that palatable.
