From what I understand, the Nats knew that Soriano was adamant about playing second (one of the reasons the Rangers traded him).

This situation really doesn't have a winner; the question is who is the biggest loser. To me, it goes:

1) Soriano - selfish ballplayer
2) Washington GM Jim Bowden - For making the trade and not having a backup plan
3) Nationals - Basically losing a good player (Brad Wilkenson) for a player that won't play for them (in essence, nothing).

If things play out right, this situation may give Isiah Thomas a run for his money...
