Yankees Willing To Go 2 Years On Rafael Soriano
The Yankees seem to be giving out nothing but one year contracts this off season before the 2014 luxury tax threshold budget is put into place next season unless your name is Rafael Soriano. The Yankees thinking is that they will have an immediate and proven successor for Mariano Rivera if and when he retires after the 2013 season. It makes sense and I am all for it, especially if the money is right. I could not see Soriano signing a two year deal unless it is loaded with options and opt out clauses again and even then it may be a stretch but the MLB off season was made for hopes and dreams, especially in November.
