MFY take Soriano for 3/35.



Well, they had to get someone, right? To me, this is not a great deal for the Yankees.  Now, they are paying their set up man and closer a combined 26 million dollars (more than double Paps' salary).  Also, in my eyes, Soriano is rather unproven.  His career year last year included a ridiculously low BABIP, which he will never be able to duplicate.  Without a doubt, he was still the most prized reliever on the market.  But paying a set up man 11 million a year and a closer 15 is quite shocking--even for MFY.  This was a knee-jerk reaction to losing out on Crawford, Lee, and others.  The back end of their bullpen is probably the highest paid, but I would take Paps/Bard/Jenks over Rivera/Soriano/Feliciano any day.  So at the end of the day, MFY got their wish and landed someone.  

P.S.  Sorry you didn't get your wish, Jared.
