Per Espn.com and Espn bottom line, Alfonso Soriano reportedly rejected 5 years 70 million from the Nats. They Deny, if this is true, he must really think he is going to get a WHOLE LOTTA CASH on the market, could he be the next 20 million dollar a season man?

With us, he can factor in the World Series bonus.

No thanks, I'd rather the money be used to balance the lineup, instead of having all right-handed, fastball mashers and get better relievers.

People on talk radio were using this to show what a "bargin" A-rod will be in a trade at this point. The asking price for Soriano seems to start at 5 years for 75 million. With the portion that Texas is paying for A-Rod he is dirt cheap for the next 5 years. A mere 64 million.:o:

I can't possibly imagine that guy getting $15/per. He's a defensive butcher that generally commits over 20 errors a season

Once again, that's what you get when you play one of the best shortstops in the game at 3rd base.

Hey I would love to see the guy in a White Sox uniform, but I don't see it happening. Nobody can say they don't want a 40/40 guy on their team.

for the 20 errors he may commit, figure thats 8 more then the average fielder, he gives you 40 homers 100 rbis 100 runs 40 stolen bases, he is one of few game changers in the game today. Baseball is inflated. Is he worth 2-3 more million a year then Konerko, I would have to say yes.

If the Red Sox unload Manny I can see them paying Soriano...that would give Ortiz protection.

I think KW wants him to develop a split-finger fastball before he thinks about signing him.

Let's look at that in a different way. Would you give up Konerko and raise the price of every ticket by $1 for Soriano?

I guess the Cubs are now priced out of the market! :tongue:

Geez, makes me sick. He aint worth $20M. Makes me wonder how much they're gonna throw at Zito. Some of these owners are a bunch of idiots for inflating the market like this. Especially "Idiot #1" in New York. :D:
