You throw in Zimmerman into that lineup, and can Nick Johnson spend anymore time on the DL next year than this year? he'll get his rbis.
This trade may have been crap for fantasy purposes but Soriano will help the Nats greatly offensively I think. It's not like he has nobody around him, Guillen is a very good hitter and Johnson is coming into his own nicely. A healthy Vidro won't hurt either.
I'd say he gets at least 70-80 RBIs, if not more. His numbers will surely take a hit going to Washington, but I think some people are slightly overplaying it. Regardless, a .270-20-80-20 stat line is still good enough to be a top 3 2nd baseman IMO.
