Cairo to the Rangers? 

Joel Sherman of the New York Post is saying that the Rangers are in "serious negotiations" with Miguel Cairo.

He's an okay utility infielder who had a very nice season in 2004 as the Yankees' starting 2B...he was actually better than Soriano in 2004, for what it is worth...

It is still an open question, though, as to whether he would just be brought in to be the utility infielder, or whether he's intended to play 2B if/when Soriano is dealt...

I get the feeling that Soriano will only be traded if he plays well in the first half. Of course the media would then blast Hart for trading "such an impact player." We're, most likely, stuck with Soriano at second for another year. If he elevates his game, great. If not, well...
 
The Rangers best intrest is getting cairo and starting him at second base. Then using sori as a DH. Soriano sucks at second base and soriano had a better offensive game when he was the DH about 2 times. This would upgrade the Rangers offense and defense. Even though that would be a expensive DH it would be cheaper than getting delgado for about 11 million a year opposed at 7 million for soriano......

Please comment on that adam...............
 
I'm not in favor of Soriano being a DH, because he's not that good of a hitter.

What value Soriano has is because he hits well for a 2B. He's a subpar hitter for a DH. If you're going to DH him, you're better off just trading him for whatever you can get.
