You're both right.

Soriano made it very clear that he did not and would not move to the outfield. Washington knew this, they traded for him anyway, then tried to force him to move, despite his objections. I don't feel bad for them at all.

That said, Soriono is a terrible, terrible second baseman as a fielder. He's horrible. Statisticly, he might be one of the worst second basemen of all time. Ranger fans learned to hold their breath when the ball was hit his way and it's one of the reasons he's no longer there.

It would be to his benifit to switch positions, but it also means he won't be going in the Hall of Fame (although any chance of that is probably heading out the window right now).
