Alfonso Soriano to nowhere

Well, the Nats just issued a statement saying they were not dealing Soriano anywhere:

"We felt the best deal we could make is no deal for the franchise," general manager Jim Bowden said.

Now, this can't be about making the playoffs this year and probably isn't about draft picks, so I guess this is just Bowden sticking his finger in the other GMs' eyes and proving he's willing to go down with the ship to spite them.

Unless he's got some inkling he'll be able to sign Soriano to an extension?

Seems to me, with all the buzz, Bowden could have dealt Sori somehwere and made the team better for the future, but maybe the offers just weren't there.

What do people think?  Do you hold Trader Jim's non-action against him?  Even without the offers of McCarthy and Fields, surely the team is worse off in the future with Soriano leaving at the end of the season than they would have been had he been dealt.
