TIME TO RECONSIDERSORIANO'S HOT SPRING MAY JUST KEEP HIM IN CHICAGO AFTER ALL Mesa, AZ -- After much speculation this off-season about what the new-look Chicago Cubs front office might do about the enigmatic left fielder Alfonso Soriano, many thought they would do everything in their power to seperate ties between the player and the long-suffering franchise. Perhaps Soriano heard the rumblings as well, as he walked into camp in the best shape he has ever been in for Spring Training with the Cubs. He has lead the team in RBI this spring and seems to have settled in as the Cubs 5th hitter in the lineup, behind left handed bat Brian LaHair and before newly acquired three-bagger Ian Stewart. First-year Cubs Manager Dale Sveum is impressed. "He looks great. Man, does he look good. He is hitting the ball with a lot of force, even if it is right at guys. He is working really hard at not chasing bad pitches, as he has had a tendency to do in the past. I am very optimistic, I think Sory will have a great year for us." Look for big things from Alfonso Soriano this season, he seems very motivated. Best case scenario for the Cubs is Soriano plays well and gets them some nice value at the trade deadline.Worst case scenario? He plays like he has the first five years in Chicago. Soriano is under contract until 2014. Yuck.
