Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you have to give the Yankees credit for this much: They always step up with things like this. Here’s the quick announcement from the team.

The New York Yankees today announced they will donate $500,000 to the American Red Cross to support the relief efforts in the Tri-State area associated with Hurricane Sandy.

“The damage and destruction to the Tri-State area caused by Hurricane Sandy is daunting, but we have seen the great resiliency of this region before,” said New York Yankees Managing General Partner Hal Steinbrenner. “As a neighbor and community member, the Yankees embrace our role of stepping forward and assisting the American Red Cross, which comes to the aid of so many people through their tireless efforts.”

    Soriano has opted out of his yankees deal.

    2/25 gets it done or is he a goner?

    Make the qualifying offer but nothing more…..

    Good afternoon,

    I prefer the draft pick. So I offer him a QO and say good bye. Thank you Sori.

    if mo doesn’t come back, mr. untuck is a good option. otherwise it’s drob and joba.

    NYY always, always steps up with donations in times of disaster. This organization does not get enough credit for this.

    Ref Soriano, this is a no-brainer, I agree with Luis and Blake you make him a QO and that is it. The rest is up to Rafael.

    If Rafael bids adieu, you thank him for his contributions but let him walk. Period.

    Why would the Angels deal Haren? Big red flag there. I understand Santana’s, they have basically given up on him. But Haren was a very good pick, he must be hurt or about to get hurt.

    luis,

    With respect to Haren, I think it’s more an issue of LAA wanting to clear some payroll vs. a major injury concern. Can’t really blame them for moving the pieces most likely to better their position of sealing up Grienke for a few years.

    Haren was excellent down the stretch… 2.81 his last eight starts. Santana is very talented.

    It just may be that the Angels want to sign Zac Grienke and don’t want to have five starting pitchers making $ 13 M plus each.

    ===========================

    Don’t think there’s going to be much of a market for him. Not because he isn’t good. He is. He’s not elite, but he’s good. Among AL teams, I see only Detroit and Toronto as viable options. NL? Florida? Milwaukee?

    Either way, you definitely make the QO.

    With respect to James Shields that is a major trade piece for TB and given TB salary structure and need for a bat, I don’t see a great match with LAD.

    I see a better match for TB with KC. KC needs a pitcher, TB needs a stick.

  12. blake October 31st, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    “Don’t think there’s going to be much of a market for him. Not because he isn’t good. He is. He’s not elite, but he’s good”

    Boras either thinks there is a deal out there or he’s banking on the Yanks making the Q offer and he will just use that as a fall back……

    League got 3/22 and Soriano is better than him…..but then again league signing presumably takes the dummy Dodgers off the table for Soriano

    “I see a better match for TB with KC. KC needs a pitcher, TB needs a stick.”

    I agree

  14. DONNYBROOK October 31st, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    We got posters daily telling us how the Yanks are Horrible at developing players. So why gamble big money, in order to garner every draft pick possible, and basically pour it into an already poisoned well? It sure is fun playing roulette with somebody elses $$$. NO to the Swish QO due to General Principles, and NO to Soriano because the going rate for a Closer is less than $13.3 Mill.

    ============================

    Exactly. Plus they have that Jansen kid as a fall back anyway.

    A’s keeping Balfoour, Rays keeping Rodney. Options won’t be plentiful. Depends some on how much he’s interested in winning.

  16. luis October 31st, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    86 and Y21,

    Good points. That must be it.

  17. blake October 31st, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    Who knows ….the Dodgers might just sign Soriano too
