How about Soria for the eighth inning?

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Dec 28, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

So much for the Yankees being on Joakim Soria’s no-trade list. This story comes from mlbtraderumors.com and a Mexican newspaper. The Royals’ closer says he wouldn’t block a deal to the Yankees or any other team supposedly on his list. 

He sure would solve the eighth-inning void with Kerry Wood’s departure and be a worthy heir to Mariano Rivera’s throne. But would Kansas City be willing?

    Not going to happen.

    Not happening. Period. (unlike Rafael Palmeiro, I’m not lying)

    Don’t trust the timing of the story & can’t see possibly losing any huge prospects even for a closer.
    I think cashman should just wait until we can land a number 1-2 pitcher,the time will come,it always does.

    The price tag would likely make it not worth the Yankees while when they could sign Soriano for just money and a draft pick.

    would love to see it,

    maybe austin romine and david adams?

  7. ericns1 December 28th, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    Like it depending on the price

  8. Carlo December 28th, 2010 at 8:27 pm

    Adams and Romine would probably get Cashman an autographed ball from Soria’s locker.

    Carlo lol.

  10. YankeesNmore December 28th, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    Soria trade, huh???

    Somebody would have to wake up our sorry sack-of-$#!t GM first.

    Carlo……Like Randy said, green tomatoes

    Maybe for Joba’s 1st born son.

    Been saying this for a week. Soria would solidify bullpen for quite a while and take over for Mo when……..

    If he doesn’t wanna play in the big house, nothing Yanks can do.

    But a good package of Chamberlain, Romine, and another not so “top” prospect would not be ridiculous.

    Can I get in your Fantasy League?

  15. NYY fan in NH December 28th, 2010 at 8:51 pm

    The Yankees have to do something. Soria would solve alot and move right into the closers role. Not sure the Sox have the prospects, but they could get in on this. Not sure if KC is going to deal him, but why would you trade your ace and keep your closer around? I would send Joba, Romine, David Adams and Nova.. Really, how much do you give up for a closer? As long as it can get done without Montero then i’m all for it.

  16. mick December 28th, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    I would send Joba, Romine, David Adams and Nova..
    ================================
    Come join the Fantasy League.

  17. 4 NYY December 28th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Yanks are loaded with future catchers. Joba, I still like, but for Soria, I would say “happy trails.”

    Man, the quality here plummeted in the last hour.

  20. mick December 28th, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    back to the game, halftime’s over.

    You don’t want Soria ? If so, for who ? Girardi ?

  22. CCBiggs December 28th, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    What about Joba for the 8th inning? Don’t tell me that the Yanks are refusing to put Joba back in the rotation because they want him as a 6th or 7th inning reliever. That makes no sense at all.

    Well they did indeed want Kerry Wood back. If he did he rejoin the team he would have been the 8th inning guy. Joba might set-up Mo by default.

    Given the likely cost, few trades would be dumber.

  25. 4 NYY December 29th, 2010 at 2:10 am

    The Yanks have a lot to trade ( from farms ) to fill a HUGE need. Soria seems worth it.

  26. Rich in NJ December 29th, 2010 at 7:18 am

    Why empty the farm when you can sign Soriano for one pick?

  27. 4 NYY December 29th, 2010 at 11:11 am

    First, Soriano is not Soria. Soria is younger and better. There is plenty on farm teams, so you won’t be emptying the farm.
