Soriano to White Sox?

Reports say the White Sox are close to landing Alfonso Soriano. If that happens, the rest of the American League, with the possible exception of Detroit, can just call it a season.
If the White Sox acquire Soriano and sign him to an extension, they might be talking dynasty on the South Side, and with good reason.
I fear this is becoming a Cavs-Bulls situation for the Indians. It didn't matter how good a job Wayne Embry did putting a team together because, come playoff time, the Cavs simply didn't have an answer for Michael Jordan.
It might not matter how good a job Mark Shapiro does in shoring up the Indians roster this winter, because there is simply no way the cash-strapped Indians will be able to top an insanely deep, talented and experienced White Sox club.
