Alfonso Soriano and Jose Vidro's names are linked together again, but this time in new trade rumors that have both leaving DC.
Soriano is rumored to be going to the Angels for Erick Aybar and Joe Saunders. Aybar is a shortstop with speed and a little pop with the bat. Saunders is a lefty who appeared in two games last season for the Angels.
I was surprised at Vidro's openess in his comments about potentially being traded to the Mets. This one definitely seems like more than just a rumor. We know Minaya won't give up Lastings Milledge. There are a few names on their Triple-A roster that have been dangled as bait this year: OF Victor Diaz, RHP John Maine, and infielders Jeff Keppinger and Anderson Hernandez.
