I'll always remember him for being the one to relegate Jason Kendall to the bench after Soto burst onto the scene mid-2007.
Um ... not to ruin a happy memory, but Soto only had 60 PA in 2007. Kendall played virtually every game in August and started 17 (to Soto's 11) in September.
kind of interesting that the guys the cubs supposedly are working the hardest to move don't move.
but who knows?
I dunno, zonk. I always liked Soto, too, but you take away 2008 and his stint in 2007, you're not left with much. His 2010 was OK, but he was awful in 2009, last season, and this year. I think it's more likely that he's just not a very good hitter, but capable of having some flukey runs where he looks competent.
He does have a career OPS+ of 105 over 2000 PAs...
Still, there's a very non-zero chance he's just gone Ozzie Virgil and he'll be out of baseball within a few years.
His 2010 was OK????
So this deal actually includes cash going from the Cubs to Texas and a PTBNL or cash going from Texas to the Cubs. Odd.
Sounds like cash to TEX + PTBNL to the Cubs...
The Chicago Cubs today acquired right-handed pitcher Jake Brigham and a player to be named or cash consideration from the Texas Rangers for catcher Geovany Soto and a cash consideration.
As was reported Monday night, Soto went to the Rangers for Double-A right-hander Jake Brigham, with the Cubs paying part of Soto's remaining salary. The Cubs will have the option of a player to be named later from the Rangers, or a cash payment (basically a partial refund on the money going along with Soto).
