According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, the Yankees are "exploring" the option of signing Rafael Soriano.
Feinsand says the Yanks have had preliminary discussions with Scott Boras, Soriano's agent. The hard-throwing righty posted a 1.73 ERA and converted 45-of-48 save opportunities for the Rays in 2010 but would obviously be used in a setup role in New York. Yankees GM Brian Cashman is said to be willing to pay Soriano "closer money" to set up Mariano Rivera and then take over after Mo retires. Soriano would surely prefer to close somewhere right away, but he could go where the most money is.

The reliever market wasn't exactly breaking the way they hoped. They had to do something to address the pen. What would you have preferred? Given the circumstances I can't think of a lot more guys I'd rather have that were available, minus Soriano of course.
