Soriano at the Cub's Convention

CHICAGO -- "They boo people at Cubs Convention?"
That was a question posed to me by one of Alfonso Soriano's friends after I surmised that Soriano will probably get booed at Cubs Convention on Friday night. Yes, fans occasionally boo during the convention's star-studded opening ceremonies in the big ballroom at the Hilton.
I sure hope that Cub fans don't boo Sori at the convention. I would like to see them trade him as much as the next guy, but he's a standup guy with a good attitude and I for one have always liked him.
Any thoughts from any of you folks going to the convention? I personally have never been big on booing players, though there have been a few occasions when I couldn't really argue with the decision (Milton Bradley, for instance).

I just don't know what people booing him want him to do at this point. How could he possibly change how he plays at this point, when his athleticism is all but gone? Do they want him to forego his contract? Because thats obviously not happening (nor should it)....

"Man, he is so hot, you have to wear oven mitts to high-five him!"
