Apparently the Los Angeles Dodgers have been rumored to be showing interest in the the 10 year veteran however Fonzie has 10-5 Rights just like Dempster and could also nix the deal if he doesn’t like the team he’s being traded to.
With the trade deadline looming (3pm CT Tuesday) Talks have intensified over the past 24 hours between the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers in a potential trade for pitcher Ryan Dempster that now includes outfielder Alfonso Soriano, according to a major league source.
“It will have to be a good city with a good team,” Soriano said Sunday. “I would give the team the opportunity to trade me, but as I said the team and city would have to be good. Nobody has come to me about a trade yet.”
The San Francisco Giants have also made inquiries about Soriano, according to another major league source.
I personally wouldn’t mind seeing him in a Giants uniform because I live in San Francisco and he’s fun to watch.
The Chicago Cubs have captured five straight home series after taking one against an NL contender to open this six-game homestand.They’ll welcome another one of the league’s top teams to Wrigley Field on Monday night in the start of a three-game set against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
