I get the sense that if Alfonso Soriano is on the trading block this summer he’s not gonna have a big problem waiving his no-trade rights. From Carrie Muskat at MLB.com, here’s Soriano venting about losing:
“You think we’re going to win that game 3-0, and in five minutes, [we’re down] 5-3 … I’m tired of losing, frustrated. Sometimes, you just think too much. I get frustrated when you see that happen, because I’m tired of losing. I don’t want to be on a losing team and have a bad record.”
Not that Soriano is going to be as an attractive trade chit as he was, say, last year. So far this year he’s hitting .263/.293/.401 with only four homers.
