    I'm sure the Yankees will resign him, Jim, especially since Rivera has told Cashman he hasn't decided if he's going to return or not. That said, no harm in kicking the tires

    Definitely worth putting hat in the ring.  But, I suspect, given the sure-to-be high demand for his services (particularly Yankee demand), his price tag might be a bit high for what one should spend on a set-up man ... especially when you have ... Daniel Bard?  .... gulp ...

    or Alfredo Aceves,if he's still here.But,Soriano is definitely worth looking into

    Soriano is opting out with $14 million and a year left on his contract.

    Cherington should at least drive up the price for Cashman to resign him.  

    Soriano will stay with the Yankees especially if Rivera is retiring.

    Although we need to acquire a couple of relief pitchers, the BP is the least of our problem.

    I think the Red Sox should go after him, but at what cost?  How much would Ben C. give him after he refuse to match Papelbon's offer?  That is the tricky question.  Best Boston can do is to try to give him 4yrs/40mm to 46MM.....if Boston do not ever want him, then Boston can pretend to offer him 4yrs/56mm!!

    And big money, long term contracts for relievers not named Rivera are almost always a bad idea.  The jury is still out on Pap's deal, but I don't think you'll see another reliever get a deal like that anytime soon...

    That was the amount Johnny Damon took to go to the Yankees.   

    Fine memories...........NOT!!!   LOL

    It will be very sad if Rivera does indeed decide to retire.  Although, I wouldn't be surprised if this happened.  I also agree that Soriano will probably end up resigning with the Yankees.

    Go 4 for $12 M--$48 guaranteed rather than the $14 he was guaranteed before he opted out.

    You are not only getting a proven closer in the East but it's taking away a big asset of the Yankees.

    He's better than any closer we have and he would solidify the pen--in addition you could move Bailey or keep him til the trade deadline. In addition starters would like to have a solid closer. OR Bailey to the Tigers for VMart?????

    Geez, 4 years, $60 million?!?  Only the Yankees can afford him if that's the case.  

    Scott Boras makes all of his clients rich.  LOL

    Well for that money, maybe they can get Jonathan Papelbon.

    Let's let the Sox put together a team that needs a closer of Soriano's caliber and then worry about it.  Give Baily a shot...if healthy he can be all they need.

    My guess is the Yankees will sign Soriano (but not for 4 years and $60 million).  Maybe at 3 years, $36 million.

    Re: Soriano

    According to Yankees president Randy Levine, who negotiated the Soriano deal, Boras believes Soriano can command a contract in the neighborhood of four years and $60 million based on his 2012 season.

    "Based on that, I understand why he would opt out," Levine said. "I hope he's right. We love him here at the Yankees but we wouldn't pay him $60 million for four years."

    At that money, we could have just kept Paps.

    Re: Soriano

    4 years is too risky given his injury history and age. Bailey is a former AS reliever. When healthy hes one of the better closers in the game. Hopefully he remains healthy in his 2ndand 3rd arbitration years.
