The Dodgers. They have the prospects, they have the budget to sign him up long-term, and he gets to be a superstar in a big market.
Chris Iannetta was born on Krypton and transported to Earth as an infant and saves the universe when he's not getting on base every plate appearance.

The Angels will nab him after the O's get too greedy about the package for Tejada.

Ditto for the Angels and Mets. The Angels has just about the same amount of prospects as the Dodgers and the Mets probably have just enough. The difference being, the Dodgers don't have a vacancy in the infield. So they'd be forced to make counter moves to cater to Soriano. Or the could rent him in the OF and will have no chance of resigning him unless they let him play 2B (Soriano stated that he wants to play 2B very adamantly)

Dodgers won't trade for him if they don't let him play 2b and resign him. They know they don't have a realistic shot this year.

I think the Tigers will make a huge push for him.

same here...Twins and Angels don't seem to be getting it done in the trade market. Other than Castillo, who was part of the Marlins dump, and Guerrero who some teams were scared of at the time, these 2 haven't gotten anything major done.

Nats a couple of days ago were talking about re-signing him as the other GMs were 'lowballing' them (Read: Refusing to give up Weaver/Wood or Sanchez/Maybin for a three-month rental). However, then the ownership came out and said they wouldn't give him a NTC, and as Soriano has a young family and is apparently very keen to buy a house and settle down somewhere, this apparently kills any chance of him staying in Washington.

In a non-keeper, it shouldn't matter where he goes unless your league has different rules.
