7/17 Soriano to Yankees?

The Chicago Tribune reported on Sunday an “unconfirmed rumor” from the Cubs camp has the Yankees looking at a multi-player deal with the Cubs, which would involve Alfonso Soriano. He would be an expensive addition as Soriano is owed nearly $63 million and is signed through 2014. But the Yankees apparently want more production from left field. Soriano, 35, does have a no-trade clause. He played for the Yankees from 1999-2003, but was a second baseman then.

Oh good! Another old man added to the old men in the Yankees lineup! Couldn’t happen to a better team!

Unless Soriano can play 3B is there a possible fit, but in reality the Cubs are trying to shed payroll, so in no way would I give up a just-about ready prospect. Want a fair trade? How about Burnett for Zambrano straight up? Similar money and I think both could benefit from a change.
