Washington GM Jim Bowden says he wants the team to score more runs. Apparently not having the Nationals play in a park the size of Rock Creek Park is one of his plans.
Sayeth Bowden: If we decided to move him [Soriano], it'll be because it's in the best interest of the name on the front of the jersey.
The Nationals have also re-signed reliever Joey Eischen and picked up free agent Robert Fick. Fick, along with other former Padres such as Damian Jackson and Brian Lawrence, bring the Nationals the experience of finishing on a team that was 82-80 instead of 81-81.
