He headed to NY on a red eye last night, because he's going to be a Yankee tonight.
Good for Alfonso Soriano, good for the Cubs and we hope good for the Yankees.
I still don't really get why he didn't go to the Giants last year, but whatever.
Anyway, he's a Yankee now so here's a bunch of art, cartoons and gifs of Soriano from over the years in no particular order.
This gif sort of gives a timeline for Alfonso's popularity in Chicago.
Here's another about him - how hot is Alfonso Soriano?
Remember that stupid hop he used to do? Like a defensive back making an interception and trying to catch the ball at it's highest point.
Just looked silly, and of course one time it led to an injury...
His bat was so much better than his glove, he really should have been a DH long ago.
But something happened where he lost his fear of running into the wall. Seriously, it was like watching a whole other ballplayer. I mean, not spectacular, but like a billion times better than he was with the glove.
And while it seemed like, with such a long and expensive contract, he would NEVER get traded...
It finally happened today.
And I finally was able to switch my email service.
Supposedly it would happen smoothly, but I'm kind of an idiot as you well know.
Didn't go so well.
Like, you might have gotten an email from "blue" which sounds vaguely porn-like and it's possible you cancelled your subscription.
Sorry if that happened.
But the new service - when I post it'll email to you immediately rather than overnight.
Anyway, sorry about the inconvenience.
