So if the Mets come and say, hey we're signing Kazuo Matsui, this stud japanese FA who we think can come in and give us some great 30/30 years, but we'll give you the same amount of money to play LF more than the Giants will give you to play 2B, he'll be all for it. As long as he's getting the green, I think he's happy.

You'd be wrong about that. Soriano has expressed that he wants to continue to play 2B on whichever team he signs with. I believe he'll have a minimal number of games at 2B put into his contract.

I think he'd prefer to play for 2B but at this point, I don't think he care one way or the other. I think Sorieno is a good player to have. I don't know why the Mets fans are bitching before you even get him. Can you imagine a team with Reyes, Beltran and Sorieno. I mean screw the defense. If Mets can get him and Zito. I would have call that a good off season and put him as the favorite for next year.

On one hand, I hope they sign him because I think he'll be a relative bust. On the other hand, he absolutely destroys Atlanta pitching.
