Powerful BBWAA activist reveals the difference between Joakim Soria and Mariano Rivera

"The big difference between Soria and Rivera is that the former had his success with out-of-the-money teams."... "The Royals signed Soria to his deal prior to 2009 season. It contained three guaranteed years and three club-option years, and they just exercised the first of those for 2012. Including the two remaining options, he’s under control for three years at $22.75 million.
