Lay off “the pipe”, by several reasons:1) Cubs not dumb enough to the get rid off Soriano’s salary to acquire even a bigger one. 2) Yankees not dumb enough to trade ARod for a sure to be full-time DH the moment he lands in the AL. It’s not to say that A-Rod is not in decline (that’s an overstatement), but it’s just another rumour that actually not a rumour is basically gossip. There’s must have been something more interest to put out there, how about the olympics that get underway (if we don’t count the soccer games) or even the Dempster or Greinke situation, now these are interesting events, this ARod/Soriano, PURE BULL@#*T! ! !
