Not really a credible source reporting it (our buddies mlbtraderumors.com) but there you go discuss.
Fox Sports says yes there is a deal:
ESPN not says no deal:

Well, someone is wrong. I hope it is ESPN after they gave me false Soriano hope.

ESPN says no (Olney last night)
Rosenthal says deal is done (5 min ago) and includes the names of 2 minor league pitchers going to Washington.

My guess, Buster Olney and ESPN wrong again.

ESPN wrong? No way!

ESPN wrong, corrects itself (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2542289)

And....ESPN now says the deal is on. On top of things as usual. Can't wait to go to the park tonight and root for our new LF Alfonso Soriano!

Ol' No. 2

This deal makes a lot of sense. After all, they had all that money invested in jerseys with "Hernandez" on them that would just go to waste.:D:

great acquisition by AZ, not sure how good the minor leaguers they gave up are though. This couldve really helped the Mets or other teams who could use livan

Two great pick-ups pitching-wise for the Nats. D'Backs sure gave up some solid talent for Livan, it's a do-or-die trade. If Livan helps them, it's a great win-now move. If he doesn't, it's a stupid move to trade two good prospects.

At first I thought I heard that Livan didn't clear wavers, must have heard wrong.
