Can New York Yankees Win AL East After Alfonso Soriano Trade?
It looks like the “Bronx Bombers” are tired of being the “Big Apple Water Guns.”
Alfonso Soriano has been traded to the New York Yankees as the left fielder has been on the trade market for at least three seasons and the Yanks finally took him off the Chicago Cubs‘ hands. Chicago will be paying Soriano $17.7 million to play elsewhere, yet it was simply time for the Cubs to move on and New York had a gigantic hole to fill in its everyday lineup.
By bringing Soriano back to town, the Yankees are hoping their stagnant offense can finally wake up. In the month of July the Yanks have smashed just seven home runs as a team — Soriano has eight bombs this month alone.
For the third MLB season in a row, the Cubs have been pleased with Soriano’s production and overall effort in the field. However, the vast improvement that Sori has made in the outfield isn’t that important anymore considering the Yankees will more than likely be putting him in the DH slot on most nights. Apart from playing with the Yanks from 1999-2003, Soriano’s high-priced contract should make him feel right at home in the Bronx.
With this trade, the Yankees’ roster now has nine players who are making $19 million or more this season — there are only 12 other players in the American League making that much. In other words, this deal for Soriano is an “all-in” move for New York.
