How did they screw him? By moving his atrocious 2B glove to the OF?
Soriano is about the money. Make know mistake about it. He will go to whoever he gets the best deal from. His concern about 2b was because that is where he figured he could achieve the biggest pay day. If he gets the cash to play the OF, he will not care. Nor is he likely to care about playng for a contender. He just want the money.
Just like Piazza didn't want to move from cathing so that he can be the all time HR leader?
And I guess you wouldn't try to capitalize on your talents if you had any? You'd play for league minimum because you are such a nice guy?
What has one got to do with the other? PIazza was a veteran catcher who earned his stripes with many years of quality, loyal service. I can't believe I am defending the guy, but if you want to call him selfish for wanting to achieve a career goal at the last part of his career so be it.
Soriano has not even been in the league lpng enough to become a free agent. He has not even played on the same team for more than a few years. He has not earned any right to dictate desires to his team's management.
