Soriano said he didn’t like the weather in San Francisco, which is about as far as you can get from his home in the Dominican Republic and still be in the big leagues. AT&T Park isn’t exactly paradise for a streaky hitter either.
“It’s very hard to play on the West Coast, especially on that field,” Soriano said. “There’s nothing wrong with the team. They have a very good team, but I think it’s more the city.
“I want to go somewhere I feel comfortable. I know if I go to San Francisco, I’m not going to feel comfortable in the city. I can feel comfortable with the team, but not with the city.
“It’s far from home (and) especially with the weather (and) the program I have with my knee – it’s not going to help.”
...“I don’t want to have the same year that I had this year – losing a lot of games,” Soriano said. “I’m part of the team right now. So I don’t know (about) next year. I think they’re smart enough – if they want to have kind of the same team – they’ll figure out what they want to do with me.
“I don’t like to lose, especially late in my career. I just want to go someplace to win. If it’s here, I’d be more than happy, but we’ll see what happens.”
As reporters walked away from his locker, Soriano turned to a Cubs media relations representative and yelled out: “Another day in The Show!”
