"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Cold Chillin’

Rafael Soriano, yeah, he won’t be back; Mariano Rivera, will.

Here’s Chad Jennings with some notes. Otherwise, the Hot Stove is cool these days round these parts.

Still, here’s an open Yankee thread to start the day, featuring Bruce Davidson’s photograph of Willie Randolph because I found it at the lively Yankee site 161st & River.

Wow, my first reaction was "Rich Dauer?" but that's young Ripken, huh. Very cool shot(s).

Good news about Mo.

I'm really curious about what Soriano thought he would get from other teams. At $14 million for next season he was already going to be grossly overpaid. I'd love to get inside that man's head for 5 min.

A plaque of that man will one day be hanging above a Cooperstown urinal.

[3] I think you might have a better chance of understanding all the mathematical formulas behind string theory than what goes on in Soriano's head (which probably isn't much), I am extremely glad he opted out. Not a fan of him at all.

[7] Dimelo, I agree with every part of your comment. Well said.
