Cubs-Dodgers talk trade
ESPN.com | Jul 30
Soriano told ESPNChicago.com on Sunday that he had not yet been approached by the Cubs about waiving his 10 and 5 rights, which gives him veto power over any trade as a veteran of 10 major league seasons and the past five with the same team. In the sixth year of an eight-year, $136 million contract, Soriano is still owed $44 million. How much of that $44 million the Cubs are willing to eat could determine whether he gets moved.
