The Dodgers are out on Jorge Soler

Cuba

UPDATE: The Cubs got him.

12:31 PM: The Jorge Soler derby is entering the home stretch and one horse has dropped out: the Dodgers. Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports that L.A. is out of the bidding.

That leaves the Cubs and Yankees as the front runners. Today Jon Heyman said the Blue Jays were “said” to be interested too. There was some chatter about the Braves being in on Soler last week, but really, Liberty Media needs seventeen meetings and a feasibility study to decide if it’s going to go with regular or splurge for heavy weight paper for its letterhead, so I kinda doubt that the Braves will spend the $25 million Soler is expected to command.

Also: will someone affiliated with the AP, Getty or Reuters please track this guy down and take his picture? I’m sorta tired of going with the Cuban flag.

      I’m pretty sure Craig if familiar with google. But in the event he isn’t, a mystery team is in on Soler, and you may want to use that last image on the second row for your next article. Could the ninja strike again?

        As they say sometimes the most obviously place to hide something is in plain sight.

        Rangers or Marlins?

    Craig, I get the feeling that you don’t like the Braves’ ownership. Call me crazy.

    You are sorta tired of the Cuban flag? Spend a month down here in Macondo with me and let’s see how you feel about it….

    Marlins.

    Not really but this is the first Cuban/Dominican/Latino player who hasn’t been tied to Miami this year. Go figure.
