    Or Cashman could dangle a much bigger fish (Hamels) and have Levine bite.

    Thoroughly impressive performance by Soriano tonight. Restored order to an out of control game.

    IMO Soriano has proven to be an excellent closer. When you've got a 42 yo closer coming off a significant injury I don't see what there is to fear in retaining Soriano. He's certainly earning his keep this year.

    He can have a good season and still be overpaid and we were talking about a scenario where he opts out and asks for even more money. I like having him on the team but Soriano is a luxury item. I won't worry about it all as long as the budget doesn't get in the way of a bigger need for the team.

    spot on. you only give multiple year deals to one reliever and we already have him. after that you are asking for trouble. until mo went down throuhg a fluke injury, the money we were paying for soriano was almost pointless waste. still hoping he opts out. he won't.

    Re: 2012 Rafael Soriano Performance Thread

    Why wouldn't he? Judging by Papelbon's contract, Soriano's options after the year are 12.5/1 (he gets 1.5 buyout if he opts out) with the Yankees or something like 30~40/3~4 in FA, provided he continues to be an effective closer for us.

    Given Mo's health/age and DRob's struggles as a closer, I actually am hoping Soriano stays put.

    But here is the rub... if he's worth 12.5, he will opt out and try to get more, in years and/or AAV, getting a nice freebie 1.5million check in the process. If he's not worth 12.5, he stays put and milks us. This is why the contract was horrendous. We couldn't win. Best we could do was a draw.

    No question he's going to opt out. He's proving to be an outstanding closer, and he won't accept coming back as a seventh inning or set up guy to Mo, even for 1 season..and some team in need of a shut down guy will show him the money.

    I dunno. If Mo does come back for only 1 season, and the Yanks throw Mo money at him, I think he'll stay.

    In that case the Yanks gained an elite closer at less than market rate for 2012 and freed up $12 million for 2013. Like I said when he was signed, "win-win."

    I really really hope that he opts out to close somewhere else now. That freed up $$$ could prove very useful.

    If they ask who was our star, give them twenty five names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    I think he may get a multi-year deal similar to Papplebons (don't care if misspelled).

    It would be hilarious to see him on the mound after getting the last out of the WS, looking like he was going to kill someone
