Holy Market Correction, Batman!

Thanks to NFA for the link: Rosenthal sez that the Cubs are close to signing Soriano for 8/$135 million.

Try not to laugh.

If so, it's good news for Soriano, but bad news for the Nats. As one of the few teams that stunk worse than us, the Cubs first-round draft pick is protected. We'd still get a first-round sandwich pick, but we'd only get the Cubs second round pick -- which, truthfully, isn't that many picks down from several of the places (ie Mets) that Soriano could've ended up at.

More later....
