Soriano is supposedly going to be in the Yankees lineup tonight. The deal isn't even official yet, and the Yankees are already sticking Soriano into their lineup for tonight. It is kind of funny when you think about the whole situation. They get two brilliant years from Soriano (and pay him 2M total over his 3 years on the team), send him packing to Texas for a certain fellow whose original 10 year contract (that he opted out of after 7 years) was actually below market value considering what he accomplished in those first 7 years. Then they re-sign said fellow to a ludicrous contract that is now such a burden that they are going to the end of the earth to keep him off the field so that insurance will pick up the tab. Now they bring Soriano back. Ah, that opt-out clause was a mother****ing wrecking ball. Imagine if Alex Rodriguez played out the final 3 years of that 10 year deal he signed with Texas (it would have been 2008, 2009, 2010). 7 years with the Yankees, two historically-great MVP seasons, and at the end of the deal, when he was obviously no longer an MVP-caliber player, that one spectacular postseason when he carried the Yankees into the World Series. Methinks his New York legacy would be quite positive had that been the end of his Yankee career. How different would things be if not for that fateful opt-out clause!

Can still hit a bit and his defensive issues are overblown.

When he gets hot he gets white hot.

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS 50m
#yanks pay pro-rated portion of $5M this year ($1.8M) plus $5M for next year, for $6.8M total. Cubs pay about $18M

Including the recently acquired Alfonso Soriano, the Yankees have 9 players making $15 million or more. The rest of the AL COMBINED has 12. (via @ESPNStatsInfo)
