Weekend roundup

Posted at 10:08 AM on August 22, 2005 by Ben Tesch (1 Comments)

The Twinkies take 3 out of 4 from Seattle, the Yankees take 2 out of 3 from the ChiSox, Cleveland sweeps Baltimore, and somehow Kansas City ends their streak with 2 straight wins against Oakland. So now we're 10 1/2 out of the division, 2 games behind Cleveland, but only 2 1/2 games out of the wild card. 38 games to go.

Also, the Twins claimed Rangers second baseman Alfonso Soriano off waivers. At this point, it's just a strategic move to block a trade to another contending team, and called "nothing more than fodder for columnists and talk-radio hosts." Sounds perfect for a blog! Thoughts, anyone?

I see Soriano played 10 games as a 3rd baseman for the Yankees 5 seasons ago, but that he also had 4 errors in those 10 games. Still, especially for his hitting and potential next year as the 3rd base answer, it might be worth it to give up a pitcher or two.
