Nationals and Drew Storen agree to 1-year, $2.5 Million deal, avoid quite possibly the worst arbitration hearing ever.
So on the same day Mike Rizzo revealed that Drew Storen had lost his closing job to Rafael Soriano, Storen got a $2 Million raise and as a bonus got to avoid an arbitration hearing that likely would have led to even more hurt feelings. Timing is everything.
Anyone notice Mike Rizzo's nose growing during yesterday's press conference when he delivered this line?
"By no means was the signing of Rafael Soriano based on one inning
and one game at the end of the season."
