Soriano, Kazmir Among Thursday’s Signings

Alfonso Soriano is a Clarksville Cub and Scott Kazmir is the new sheriff in Texas as the two players headlined a solid group of signings on Thursday.

Soriano signed a $350, five-year deal with the Cubs, the seventh-highest in URL history.  Owner Jason Hoover was “ecstatic” over the signings.

“I’ve been wanting Sori here for a long time, ever since the bidding opened.  We stuck with it, and we were rewarded with his signature on the dotted line.  Getting Matt (Clement), Cliff (Lee) and Barry (Zito) for the pitching staff, too?  Is it Christmas already?”

The Outlaws, another team that has been quiet so far in the bidding process, landed Kazmir for a $265 deal spread over five years.  The Outlaws also signed third baseman Mark Teahen and pitcher Javier Vazquez.

“We were trying to target a young base, and Scott has shown tremendous ability in his short major league stay.  We think this is a solid contract and are glad to have him on board for the next half-decade,” said owner Robert Arnwine.

Other notable signings were Dan Haren ($110, four years) by Wendy’s Peffercorns and Jeremy Hermida ($130, five years) and Ervin Santana ($110, five years) by the Arkansas Cardinals.
