The RAB Radio Show: January 6, 2011


We’re talking about pitching again, but this time it’s of the relief type. Mike and I both had posts today on the subject, so we dive into things that we didn’t get to in our posts. For instance, what aspect of a one-year deal for Soriano did I overlook? Also, we shoot down the idea of Soriano ever taking a one-year deal with New York.

We do hit on the idea of big time relievers signing late and still getting a multi-year deal. It’s happened before, and I’m willing to bet it happens again with Soriano this year.

Then we dive into the A’s relievers, since they could have something of a surplus. Where do the two match up? We look a bit closer at a couple of the guys and how they’d fit at Yankee Stadium.

    Do you guys record the show and then immediately post it? Or, how much lag in between recording the show and posting it? Just curious.

    I really hope the money the Yankees are not spending this year goes into an international signings fund. That $23m for Lee could sign some pretty good prospects.

    • Thomas says:

      Maybe a little will and they might get one or two more big name prospects than usual, but the Yankees are already heavily involved in the international market and $23M is way too much to spend on it.

      Throwing money around for the sake of doing it is bad practice.
