Alfonso Soriano-to-the-Yankees talk is “very premature”

24 Comments

The New York side of the reporting late last night had Alfonso Soriano to the Yankees as all but a done deal.  The Chicago side, however, has come out today saying that discussions have been had but that it is not imminent.

On MLB Network Radio today, Jed Hoyer said such reports are “very premature” and that there is “nothing close at all.” This is backed up by other reports saying that the talks are preliminary.

So, New York scribes: you may have to wait a day or two for that column in which you talk about how refreshing it is that the man who was once traded for Alex Rodriguez is coming back to breathe a breath of fresh air back into the Bronx or whatever it is you have planned.
