And yes, I know that the Astos have a bad offense, but a GOOD player like Soriano can help turn a bad offense around, deal with it.

This is how you sound to me...
"The Angels are sucking...what the hell Vlad?
The Marlins have a bad record...Miguel Cabrera? why arent you making this team win?
Pittsburgh is bad...Jason Bay? whats the matter with you?"
The Nationals are not a good team and everyone knows it. They would be worse without Soriano...and everyone knows it..

Real Life- Nope
He is a very good hitter with elite speed and a strong arm. I think that qualifies him as a good player.
Joey Gathright has "elite" speed. A strong arm? Maybe, but how much of a player's value does this really determine? Methinks not much. As for his hitting, his power blinds people to the fact that his lack of plate discipline severely limits his production at the plate. Soriano may be a boon to fantasy owners, but he is one of the most overrated players in real life, especially considering his salary.
Did losing Soriano hurt the Yankees? Did he help the Rangers out at all? Is he helping the Nats out right now?

Umm, yes, yes, and yes. You are digging a very deep hole right now that I doubt you will be able to get out of without a good ration of ridicule.
The only reason that the Yankees statistically do not show any disadvantage in losing Soriano is because they got ARod in return, kinda kills your arguement there.
Did he help the Rangers? Well, his ridiculous stats kinda speak for that.
Without Soriano, the Nats would be the worst team in the majors (they are close anyways). Soriano IS the Nats production, Johnson, Soriano and Vidro are the only players doing ANYTHING!
Just stop while you're in last place and down, but not out, yet.
