From Jon Heyman:
Soriano is considered strictly a 10-week rental by all but one of the teams currently bidding on him. As one AL exec put it, “We all know where he’s going to wind up eventually,” meaning the Yankees.
Executives say Bowden requested the Yankees’ only two bona fide blue-chippers along with “two more prospects.”
Likewise, the Yankees are telling folks that Hughes and Tabata aren’t going anywhere. Their strategy for now, like everyone else’s, is to wait Bowden out and hope the price drops before the July 31 deadline.
Ten days ago, thereabouts, I offered my opinion on Alfonso Soriano.
Nothing has changed since then – so, obviously, I find this report to be upsetting.
