8 Years and $136 Million

ESPN’s Chicago radio station has evidently reported that the Cubs have signed Alfonso Soriano to an 8-year deal worth $136 million. That’s $17 million a year.

If true, that will make Soriano a Cub through the 2014 season. No other player is signed through even 2013, though one player, David Wright, has an option for that year. Wright will be 30 years old in 2013. Soriano will be 38 in 2014.

One good thing: Soriano should put up some good home run totals in Wrigley Field.
