If I Were A Rich Man

Alfonso Soriano lost his arbitration battle, and has to settle for a measly $10 million contract. That's sure to endear him further to the team!

Bowden always said that they'd address the position switch after the arbitration award. I can hardly wait for the fireworks! Bang! Zoom!

Recall that Brad Wilkerson (who strikes out only slightly more than Soriano) is making $6.1 million less this season. It's too bad there's nothing the Nats could spend that money on anyway.


  • Were, not was. Subjunctive.

  • You're right but for the wrong reasons. I'll change it anyway.

    I'll be sure to take the correcting pen out next time you right anything. ;)

  • So we saved $2 million? I guess that's money for 2.5 more superfluous infielders.

  • Did somebody say something about $2.5 million? Why wasn't I informed?

    Dupuy, go visit our friend Tavares.

  • Look it up. The correct construction, grammatically, is "if I were..."

    Not my fault most people don't use it anymore.

  • Dibble & Kennedy are talking about arbitration and specifically Soriano right now on XM175 or DirecTV [ whatever channel ] for the same audio. Dibble, predictably, thinks Soriano got shafted. Why am I not surprised?
