Nationals Baseball: What's Exorbitant?

What's Exorbitant?

The Nats are asking an exorbitant price for Dunn says Ken Rosenthal. I wonder what that means. I don't think say Dunn straight up for Jesus Montero is "exorbitant". A reach probably but not "exorbitant". But maybe it is to baseball people.

So am I off or are the Nationals looking for say... Phil Hughes back? Or a package like the Yankees offered for Cliff Lee? Either of those would be clearly too much.

What's the difference between the price for Dunn being "exorbitant" and the Royals having to be "overwhelmed" to trade Soria? That's what I want to know,

I read it as the difference between active and passive replies I guess.

What do you want for X?

"I want this, this and this" vs. "I don't know, what do you got?"
