Well, we’re down to the last few minutes of the MLB Trade Deadline, awaiting word of Soriano’s fate with the Nationals. Watch this space for an update.
Well, the deadline has come and gone, and no word of a trade involving Soriano. Looks like Jimmy Bowden couldn’t do it…
Update, 4:30 ESPN is saying they’ve received word from the Nationals that they will NOT be trading Alfonso Soriano. Please allow me to be one of the first to say “Wow, That’s Really Fucking Stupid.” Instead of trading for a bunch of prospects to rebuild the Nationals decimated farm-system, the Nats have opted to keep Soriano for 2 months. Instead of getting the rights to some young player for six years, Bowden has opted to keep Soriano as the ship is sinking.
Way to go, guys, that’s really fucking dumb.
