Soriano deal coming together?

I was listening to 710 sport radio

I was listening to 710 sport radio, and they said a few things I hadn't picked up on listening the Angels pre and post Game shows on Fox.  

(1) These guys were all but saying that at the Morales, Stoneman, Scioscia meeting in Phoenix just before the Dodger series, Morales told Stoneman flat out to do a deal for a stud hitter.
and (B) that Stoneman wants it to be Soriano and that we are in SERIOUS talks with the Nats and are close to a deal.

I'm not saying this is true or not, it's the first time I'd ever listened to these guys, but they were talking like it wasn't just speculation, but rather from somebody inside the Angels camp that told them this and that Morales is the driving force behind this and is pushing a reluctant Stoneman to do whatever it takes.

I;d gotten the opposite impression from the Fox people, but maybe that's just a negotiating stance to convince the Nats that we're more than willling to walk away from the table if they get too greedy.

Has anybody else heard similiar stuff from a reliable source?
