Yankees sign reliever Rafael Soriano to a 3 year/35 million deal

This just seems like a waste of money to me. He's not even going to be their closer, he'll be a setup man. A setup man to Mariano RIvera, one of the best closers in baseball. Rivera also is making a ton of money. The Yankees were said to not have been interested and were not willing to sign a player if they had to give up a first rounder. I understand that they have to make improvements to compete with the Red Sox and Rays, but this just seems like spending for the sake of spending. The Rays however really are the true winner of this deal. They add yet another first rounder and look to continue having an incredible farm system for years to come.
