    The story of the present surge of success for the New York Yankees has been all about the starting pitching and rightly so. There are more reasons as Brien outlined for us yesterday. But one piece he has left out–and its importance is open for debate–is the reliability Rafael Soriano has given the Yankees in the closing department. A giant void left by the injury to Mariano Rivera and the subsequent injury to David Robertson could have gone far worse than it has to this point. Soriano has had eight save opportunities and all eight games stayed wins for the Yankees. Are they as pretty as Mo’s? No. Are they as easy? Not hardly. But he is getting the job done and that fact has been a bit overlooked.

    It’s hard to believe it’s only been a month since that fateful evening when Mariano Rivera crumpled to the Kaufman Stadium warning track with a torn ACL while shagging flyballs during warmups.

    Another article on this topic. An example of why it's better to buy off Stubhub. A lot of brokers will be done after this.

    Re: Yoan Moncada Thread

    Rotoworld's headline is wrong, or at the very least not specific enough. We knew days ago Moncada was cleared to sign with an MLB team...by the US government.

    Yes he will be cleared once MLB changes its policy, but he's not cleared yet
