A sign and trade deal for Soriano? That's so crazy it just might work!

J.C. Bradbury is either on to something here or else he’s engaging in a particularly elaborate form of Braves-fan rationalization. Upshot: maybe Rafael Soriano’s acceptance of arbitration was designed to get him out of Atlanta and into a multi-year deal without his new team having to pay up in compensatory draft picks.

If that’s what’s going on, it’s brilliant. Maybe not 100% kosher in terms of the CBA, but freakin’ brilliant.
