Yanks sign Rafael Soriano to a three year contract worth $35M (that's 23x the total value of what Kerry Wood signed for with the Cubs, for reference). To set up. They lose a first round draft pick in the process, and also gave Soriano opt-outs after each season (not that he'd opt out with such a large contract, but it's still a lot of leverage to the player, especially if a certain Rivera retires soon). Yankee fans should love the move baseball-wise, which is really all that matters in the end. A corollary benefit being that (hopefully) we won't be hearing any more about how much the Sox are overpaying Bobby Jenks with their 2/$12M deal.
