    So where will Rafael Soriano end up?

    Round 2 of the free for all bidding war for Rays free agents (well it won't be free for the team that signs him). Round 3 if you count Carlos Pena and his .196 BA getting $10M from the Cubs

    Soriano made $8M in 2010 in a one year deal with the Rays and is in line for a raise. It doesn't sound like as many teams will be bidding on this X-Ray that there was for Crawford.

    1) LA Angels of Anaheim (deciding between Beltre and Soriano as their big FA splurge)
    2) NY Mets (if they can unload K-Rod's contract?)
    3) Atlanta Braves (to replace the retired Billy Wagner)

    Red Sox could afford him, but have Papelbon for another year and Bard as closer in waiting. Yankees just re-upped Mariano for 2 more years, so I doubt Soriano would go there to be an 8th inning guy for 2 years. Has anyone else heard of any other teams that may be talking to Soirano's agent?

    Shows you what the hell do I know?

    At least he has out clauses to leave instead of waiting for ageless Mo to hang 'em up. The Rays are still looking for a closer, Farnsworth is not the answer...

    yeah i was kinda surprised he went to the yankees, i bet Mariano will let him close out a few games.
