    Soriano Mad Over Benching

    Alfonso Soriano upset over latest benching -- chicagotribune.com

    "That's a surprise to me today," Soriano said. "I think he could have said to me last night, 'OK, take a day off,' especially because [Thursday] is an off day. I'd be like, 'OK, I'll take the two [days].' But I like to know before I come here."
    For $18 mil a year you should show up to play EVERY day regardless if you are in the lineup or not. Also it doesn't help your case when you are batting .182 over your past 40 games either...

    I'm mad too. I can't believe the Cubs are paying you that much to suck enough to get benched.

    Re: Soriano Mad Over Benching

    I dont see a difference in paying him 18 mil to suck and 18 mil to sit the bench so might as well let the younger players that actually want to be there play

    Absolutely. Put Fox, Fuld, or Hoff out there. I guarantee they won't ***** about their spot in the starting line up too.

    You're right about that, but there is a better than even chance that Soriano makes the play that Fox whiffed on yesterday.

    Then again, maybe not.

    Re: Soriano Mad Over Benching

    Supposedly Fox is now the backup catcher now that Soto is hurt.

    Possibly. I guarantee you Fox won't pull a hammy (steroid) doing a stupid hop to catch a ball though.

    Re: Soriano Mad Over Benching

    Seriously, what does the guy expect when he is batting .182 for 25% of the freaking season?? They could bring up an A-ball player who could do that...while paying him $17.6 mil less per year.

    It's an oblique strain so I bet he finds his was to the DL eventually. Right now I doubt he plays before the all-star break
