Now all they'll get is a draft pick...they could've had their pick of the "top prospect litter" so to speak.
I don't think Frank Robinson is the greatest manager by any means, but the Nationals' struggles have to do more with GM Jim Bowden's incompetency than Mr. Robinson's managerial decisions. Who knows why the new ownership group under Stan Kansten has decided to keep Bowden.
Soriano is a jerkoff. He probably wants a 7 year contract and somebody is going to give it to him. It won't be long before they regret giving it to him, too.
