They are the same price range, same position, and both power bats. Nothing to back this up other than speculation, but I guess it means you could throw in the Yankees, Tigers, Angels, M's, and RedSox and Mets.
The big difference between the two is that Soriano is 2 years younger and seems to be further from decline while Abreu is already in decline. It would behoove any team that acquires Soriano to sign him to an extension when the trade is executed. If the Nats find a team to do that, and I think they will, there will be a huge return. Abreu may not get an extension and as such, he could be cheap.
