    2012 Rafael Soriano Performance Thread

    I know he pitched on opening day. Where has he been since?

    Wouldn't surprise me. He was throwing low 90's slop at the end of ST.

    I was thinking the same thing. No reason he didn't throw the 8th or 9th tonight. The Logan/Wade combo would usually be saved until later??

    Mark Feinsand@BloggingBombers Soriano tore a nail while warming up in the seventh. Could have pitched if game went longer.

    This contract pisses me off so much. The deadline for the the $189m payroll, does that come before the end of this terrible deal.

    *Bullpen phone rings*
    Bullpen: Hello.
    Girardi: Get Sori up, he is in next inning.
    Bullpen: Yeah....about that. He has a hangnail.
    Girardi: A hangnail?
    Bullpen: Hangnail.
    Girardi: Pitching hand?
    Bullpen: Guess so.
    Girardi: Sigh. Rapada?
    Bullpen: Rapada?!
    Girardi: Rapada.

    Yes. Next year is the last year of Levine's folly

    So the deadline is this coming winter but we have Soriano for another year. Ugh, Randy Levine is a tool and better have skills that we don't know about cos the traits we do see are parallel to those of someone auditioning for "king of the muppets".

    No, the $189 million number is for 2014. Soriano will be gone by then (or at least this contract will be done)

    Good, I thought so originally. Thanks for the clarity.

    He may not be available for tonight's game:
    http://web.yesnetwork.com/news/artic...8718&oid=36019
    "He tore his nail on a slider," Girardi told the media when asked why Soriano was warmed up during the seventh inning and then sat back down in favor of keeping rookie David Phelps in the game.

    Soriano ended up as the only Yankees reliever who didn’t enter Tuesday’s game, although Girardi did say that he thought about trying to get him in the game once it went to extra innings.

    "When it got to be the 11th inning, I said, 'Can the trainer go down there and see if they can file it off and get it to stop bleeding?'" Girardi said. "They got it to stop bleeding and it was a question, 'Can I use him or not?' Me and Larry Rothschild were going back-and-forth because if you put him in there and it starts bleeding again you could be in trouble. Now, the only guy you have left is Mo."

    Nail issues happen all the time with pitchers.

    I know, amazingly enough, I dont think Carl managed to have a nail issue while warming up

    Like Mr. C said, probably because he hardly was ever healthy enough to warm up.

    But seriously, I misunderstood. I thought you were implying that Soriano is made of even more delicate glass than Pavano. My bad.

    Yeah we haven't seen that approach very often from Soriano. It seems like he falls in love with his slider. It was refreshing to seem him just rear back and blow it by a hitter.

    First time I've had the chance to see him this year - very impressive.
