What I Want for Christmas: Yankees Edition

Yesterday I asked for Max Scherzer under my Yankees themed Christmas tree to fill out the Yankees rotation and today on this Christmas Eve I ask for someone to help fill out the bullpen. Enter Rafael Soriano an AL East and New York tested battle closer who could fill the defined 9th inning role for the Yankees, untuck.

Sure Soriano has lost a MPH or two on the fastball but not enough to worry about him as he is likely to land a one year deal, two years max, after losing his job in Washington last season. Signing Soriano allows the team to get multiple innings out of at least one of, if not both of, Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances every single night. Add in an inning from Justin Wilson, Jacob Lindgren, Adam Warren or any other Yankees reliever and the starters, the biggest question mark on the team, need to simply get through 5 IP and go take a shower.

Bring me Soriano wrapped in a bow, I’ve been good. Untuck.
