Also, I think that Texas will leave M.Young a 2B, and place Soriano in the outfield in place of either L.Nix or K.Mench.

It's possible. I think Ramon Nivar (who'll play CF or 2B) is in their plans as well -- possibly ahead of EY.

I doubt this is real. Why would Texas say no? They get a stud in Soriano, a very good arm, and a good c prospect. They also free up millions. I doubt NY offered, and Texas then declined.

Call me crazy but i think the Rangers are getting over in this deal.Soriano in my mind is still a raw talent & is only going to get better.Plus they are dumping 250 million dollars in salary.Now what happens to Michael Young's status at 2nd base?

Anything and everything Boston accomplished this offseason was entirely offset by this deal. They not only got the best player in the game -- but more importantly did what Boston couldn't and acquired him.

I hate the freaking Yankees and something does have to be done.

He'll move to SS -- play there in the past. Also subbed in the last innings a couple times for Pay-rod.

Jeter isn't a good ss, and would be better at 3b.

His arm is his best asset (Jeter)....Arod is far superior in every facet defensively. Jeter would be better off at 3b.

This will be a huge blow to Arod in fantasy. If he plays 3b, not ss, he's no longer a top 5 pick. Yankee Stadium is tough on RHB, so leaving the TBIA hurts.
