Bye bye Soriano

A Dominican newspaper is quoting Nats assistant Jose Rijo as saying that Alfonso Soriano rejected a 5 year, $70 million contract. $14 million per year is pretty much all the Nats were going to offer, I think, so it doesn’t look like Soriano will be back next year, unless he was just holding out for a longer term, like 6-7 years. Glad I didn’t buy that jersey.
