Yankees.com: Soriano’s trade to Yankees nearly complete

Alfonso Soriano is apparently headed back to the Yankees, where he began his Major League career.

Soriano was in the Cubs’ starting lineup on Thursday for the series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but president of baseball operations Theo Epstein called manager Dale Sveum and asked him to pull the 37-year-old outfielder, saying a deal was “99 percent” completed.

Major League Baseball has to review the financial terms of the deal, and an official announcement may not come until Friday.

Apparently Soriano took a red eye flight to New York last night, so this deal is all about finished. The I’s just have to be dotted and the T’s have to be crossed. After all, Selig’s bed time is likely around 6pm, so he was not around to authorize the money exchanging hands last night.

Would you be pissed if you took the red eye and then the trade didn’t go through?

How are we gonna stay under $189 if we’re throwing plane tickets around like they’re 10 year contracts ?
