    Rafael Soriano's $14 million option will vest with 120 games finished over the next two seasons.

    I'm a tad bit confused since we already have a closer and Rafael is a closer by trade.

    1) LOL at people who doubted Boras
    2) That's a huge contract

    So he opts out...to make almost exactly how much he would have made this year anyways. He basically just signed a one-year extension.

    Deal makes sense for a team that's where they are (virtually no weaknesses, money to spend, very low draft pick to give up), but 14M for 70 innings is still hard to comprehend.

    Im confused.. do you not see how huge of a deal that one extra year is?? He got ridiculous money right when it looked like Boras screwed him out of 14 million for one year. On top of that, theres a good chance his 2015 option vests as well.

    I wonder why the teams in the top 10 haven't jumped on more of these type of free agents.

    Just as an example, use Cleveland. Let's say Cleveland, after signing Swisher, sees Kyle Lohse's value way down. They sign him to a 2 or 3 year deal at below market value, lose a 3rd round pick, and then try to flip him after June 1st. I think that'd be a sweet loophole in this new system that works for these teams with protected picks.

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you

    Nationals were willing to lose first-round pick because of lesser talent at No. 29 and the relatively low amount of bonus-pool money.

    Yeah I was wondering why the Blue Jays, with the 10th pick overall in 2013, didn't make a move for one of these free agents. I wouldn't say I was surprised when they didn't make the move, but I thought it made some sense to try to acquire a player like Bourn or Soriano when the market seemed kinda weak at the moment.
