Alfonso, adieu

alg-soriano-2001-jpg

All of the links to my ThroughTheFence pieces have the same uninspired title in this space. I’ve decided to get away from that, and take the cross-posting as another chance to be creative. So here goes.

I wrote something yesterday about Alfonso Soriano and his spectacular failings with the Cubs. He’s gone now, traded away to the team where it all started for him. I wish him well, I suppose, but I’ll always look at his years the Cubs with something less than fondness. Soriano took us to the playoffs, yes, but that was all he did. And this Cubs fan needs more than that.
