Occam's Razor

When Washington Nationals GM Jim Bowden traded for Alfonso Soriano before the start of the season, he caused many people to raise their eyebrows and look around in confusion. Why would he trade for a second baseman, who is a defensive liability, when the Nationals already had a very good second basemen in Jose Vidro? Also, why would Bowden then try to move Soriano to left field after Soriano had made it clear while he still played for the Texas Rangers he had no desire to play any position other than second base?

Well, it seems we can finally put these questions to rest. And as with most perplexing questions, the simplest answer is the right one. Jim Bowden was drunk when he traded for Soriano.
