I am also guessing, and it yes it is just a guess, that who ever signs him will have to promise him that he will be the everyday 2B. The White Sox cannot make that kind of promise to him, so I think that if Kenny Williams does trade for him, he would be a fool to give up anything of substance.
Boy the Nats sure screwed themselves in this deal eh.
A team would make a trade for Soriano because they want to win a World Series. Yes, he would probably leave in the offseason. Yes, it would take some quality prospects. But how many chances does a franchise get at winning a World Series?
Remember what Beltran did for Houston in 2004? Do you think the Houston higher-ups regret that deal? Of course not, he took them to their first World Series. And Soriano could do the same thing for another franchise.
