Padilla @ ESPN:

The White Sox already are on the hook for at least $120 million in roster commitments, and could be close to matching the highest payroll ever for a season ($121 million in 2008). Adding Soriano would definitely take them into new financial world. The 31-year-old Rafael Soriano made $7.25 million last season and will get a healthy raise on that for 2011.

Furthermore, as Buford mentioned, Soriano is over 30 and a Boras guy.

Kenny, if you need pitching look elsewhere.

UPDATE: Is Phil Rogers suggesting the Sox trade John Danks to clear payroll to sign Rafael Soriano? Oh God!
