The eighth inning

The Yankees, according to an report, have showed interest in free agent Rafael Soriano. The question is, would the ex-Rays closer be interested in trading the ninth inning for the eighth for at least a couple of years? If so, he would be a good answer.

As for another good answer, Joakim Soria, saying he wouldn’t block a deal to the Yankees, Royals GM Dayton Moore indicated to the New York Post that he would deal anyone for the right return.  Who would you like to see in that eighth-inning role, Joba Chamberlain, David Robertson, a committee or one newcomer?

The ex-Red Sox third baseman, Adrian Beltre, is after a five-year deal and the Angels appear to be the frontrunners at the moment to give it to him. The Rangers may still be in the mix, but the A’s look out of it.

Rafael Palmeiro is still claiming he never took steroids. He just made his debut on the Hall of Fame ballot. The other baseball news is a sad note. Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew is battling cancer.  

I’m at Yankee Stadium today for chilly Pinstripe Bowl coverage.
