Yankees Offseason Notes: Soriano opts out, Yankees donate to Red Cross
Good evening everyone. Hope everyone had/is having a nice Halloween. Here are some Yankees notes that circulated around today.
– Well, it looks as if the ‘untuck’ era is over for the Yankees. At around 2pm, Rafael Soriano opted out of his contract thus making him a free agent. The Yankees now have 14 free agents going into the market. So now the Yankees have no catcher, no closer, no backup closer and no right fielder. Yankees have work to do.
– Casey McGehee elected for free agency after being out-righted off the Yankees 40-man roster.
– The New York Yankees are donating $500,000 to the American Red Cross to support the Tri-State Area in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Now, if only every other rich billionaire team/organization could do the same thing.
