It seems like a lot of people are taking for granted that MO comes back for another year. 

Being that he is unsigned for next year, I wonder if contract negotiations will be an issue since he is coming off his injury.

It's very possible the Yankees will be hesitant to give his $10-$15M on a one year deal.  Right?

If it's an either or I'd keep Soriano and give Mo a parade.

It sucked that Mo got injured but there wouldn't have been anything for him to do in the postseason. Hopefully the Yankees will be meaningful next year but I'm not holding my breath.

Soriano was very good but he was not MO.  I'll take MO for  2 years $25 m as opposed to Soriano probably wanting 3/ $39-42.

Mo is old.. I am tired of old.  He can come back as a set-up man and see if he's got something, losing Soriano over semantics is dumb .

Mo is old. And as much as I adore him, I'd like to see him retire. He stopped being unhittable for a few years now. I don't want to see him decline before my eyes. I want him to get the kudos he deserves and leave while he's still on top.

Mostly agree. Ideally, we should sign him to a minor league contract (not going to happen) and see what he does in spring training.

Soriano was a pony that helped us get to October. ROBO imploded when he had a chance to shine as a Closer. MO should retire and wait to be inducted in 5 years. He is already old and they had to give him rest every so often. Keep Soriano and give MO a Day to celebrate with the  fans. I might sound callous but I am facing reality. Closers are hard to come, and Soriano is better than an aging MO.

That's not an issue, Mariano still knows how to throw the cutter.
