MLB Rumors: Could Chicago Cubs Trade Alfonso Soriano To Cleveland Indians?

MLB Rumors: Could Chicago Cubs Trade Alfonso Soriano To Cleveland Indians?

The Chicago Cubs are doing everything possible to trade Alfonso Soriano this offseason, ramping up their efforts that were fruitless during the 2012 MLB season. The Cubs have entered full blown rebuilding mode, and they are attempting to start from scratch under Theo Epstein. That means moving all payroll that is not expected to help the Cubs compete when they are finally ready, which may not be for at least another two or three years.

The Cleveland Indians are remaking their team. They traded Shin-Soo Choo this week in a major nine player deal that netted them Drew Stubbs, Trevor Bauer and Matt Albers, but they are not through. New manager Terry Francona would not have agreed to come on board if he felt that the Indians would be going through a rebuilding phase.
