Should Cubs consider dealing Soto to the Nats?

Should Cubs consider dealing Soto to the Nats?
I’m quite sure the Nationals have talked about Geovany Soto, at least internally, as an option to replace the recently injured Wilson Ramos.  It’s also very possible that they’ve engaged the Cubs as well. Soto has had a couple of productive years as a catcher mingled in with a couple of decidedly mediocre seasons.  In... Read more »

Cubs Win! Samardzjia, LaHair keys but Marmol, Stewart and Soto get in on the act

Cubs Win! Samardzjia, LaHair keys but Marmol, Stewart and Soto get in on the act
Good Cubs win today.  They once again got solid starting pitching and a HR by Bryan LaHair, but this time they got some help as Ian Stewart had a HR and a nice defensive play that may have saved an extra run.  Geovany Soto had two hits, a walk, and an RBI to contribute to... Read more »

Steve Clevenger has had just  2 starts and 9 PAs this season and he’s made the most of them.  He was behind the plate when the Cubs had their  two best pitching performances of the season. Offensively, he has 6 hits in his 9 at-bats.  So now the question becomes, Should the Cubs trade Soto... Read more »

It’s not quite the hot stove season or the trade deadline, but the last week of spring tends to generate some interesting trade activity.  Teams have had a chance to look at what they have in camp.  Sometimes they realize they’re going to be short at certain positions.  Sometimes a young player hasn’t made the...
