He's stated he doesn't want to play in the outfield,and Jimbo's penchant for Reds players do you all think the Reds could work up a deal?Of course the Nats would have to eat some of his salary.

Soriano is expensive and seems that last season anyways, he couldnt hit if he wasnt playing at home. I wouldnt want him unless the Nat's took a big chunk o fhis salary.

But ya got to love the SB's though.His yearly walk totals and steal totals are about the same, that's a wart ya can't love since he fields 2nd like Pete Rose in the 70's.

60 more OBP points, and 9 million less dollars and you've got Ryan Freel.

He would be nice but we need pitching and he doesn't pitch.

First thing I thought about with this was what about maybe Pena and Milton for Soriano and maybe Patterson or a couple pitching spects? We all know how Bowden dispises them ;).

Might be too much for the Nats to give up. The two principles in the deal should be Soriano and Milton. After that you can work around who else should be involved. Perhaps you could throw Womack in there. Even if I did get Soriano, I'd think about flipping him back to the Yankees. You might get George and Cashman to bite on getting Soriano back.

Continuously, one of the most overrated commodities in professional sports. His live, athletic body does not translate to wins on the baseball field.

His talents are best used in a band box where he can use his "power" and even if he doesnt elevate cause use his speed. Plus I think hed be scheduled to be a FA after this season where as we would be stuck with Milton for another year.

At age 30, methinks that Soriano's game is hanging by a Tony Batista-like thread.

His fielding skills have degraded and he wasn't a great fielder to begin with. At an OBP of @.330, the guy would have real value because his OBP event quality allows for high-quality opportunity. IMHO, his 2002 season was underappreciated.

But alas...his BA is degrading along with his defense. That was predictible of course. His Home/Road splits have been awful for the past two seasons while his home games have been played in a hitter's park. His attitude sucks.

Stay away at this point. Let him hit in Washington for a while. Heh.

I think a Soriano trade is very unlikely at this point. The last thing we need is another player who swings at everything, fields badly, and has a huge contract. Nope, we missed our chance on that when we turned down dealing Pokey Reese to the Yanks. Geez... remember that?

Who do you think you are? Only I get to play the Tony Batista card here on Redszone.

It's one of my gimmicks you crook!

If he can stay out of Jeter's way chasing after pop ups he should be fine. He is also young and cheap which are two things Soriano has passed by.
