Alfonso Soriano was introduced to the Chicago media today in his press conference, thus finally officially making him a Cub. He'll be wearing his #12 as always since 2002 and he'll have the leadoff spot in the lineup all to himself. I think he'll have a great year in Chicago and maybe help carry that team to the playoffs. As for his numbers in Wrigley Field, I think it'll look something like:

.282 48 HR 119 RBI 124 R 43 SB 197 H

Fielding: 7 errors, 15 assists. How do you guys think he'll do?

Very good early. As he gets older the production will lower. Let's just say that he might break some records...

He's got the potential to break plenty of them and here's some just off the top of my head:

Most 30-30 seasons (record is 3, needs 1 to break)

Most career leadoff HR (currently has 34, needs 47 to break)

Only player with multiple 40-40 seasons

2nd player in history with 500 career HR and 500 career SB (Barry Bonds is the other)

Only player with 550 career HR and 550 career SB

3,000 hits

600 HR

Only player with a 50-50 season

And he already holds the record for most leadoff HR in a season (13, 2003) and is tied for being one of two players in history with consecutive 35-35 seasons. He's gonna have quite the career when it's all said and done.
