And...one more thing...the Rays get the 31st pick in a deep draft. Do they also get a supplemental for him?

EDIT: Never mind...I see that they do. Wow!

Soriano was one of the top free agents on the market by Elias Ranking, so the supplemental pick for him will be one of the first. The Rays very well got picks 31 and 34 overall from this.

They were talking on MLB Radio how incredibly desperate and F'd Cashman is....from not getting Lee, to Pettite not returning to Joba sucking donkey dong...

Soriano isn't going to post numbers like he did last year...much less for 3 seasons.

Smart move by NY IMO...Now, you will have shorter games...assuming of course that Soriano can stay healthy and perform.

Their starting pitching may not be great but if their pen is stellar, they may be ok.

On top of this, the DRays get much better with their draft picks...Sucks double for the Orioles.

Agreed on pretty much all counts.

This doesn't really bother me all that much.

You think that it's smart for the Yankees to pay a reliever nearly $12 mil per year for 3 years, and give up a first round pick - which Cashman swore he wouldn't do for any player other than Cliff Lee?

Okay...:rolleyes:

P.S. a first round pick to a division rival, which will also recieve a supplemental pick, and already has one of baseball's deepest farm system?

Well, the Yankees had to do something. This wasn't a well thought out plan on their part, it was simply grasping at what was left. They're just lucky Soriano was still available.

I couldn't agree more. I think this is up there for one of the worst decisions this offseason.
