Yankees' Soriano learning about Bronx baseball

BY foxsports • April 6, 2011

Rafael Soriano is already learning a lot about playing for the Yankees.

The former Rays closer, who was signed in the offseason by New York to be the eighth-inning setup guy for Mariano Rivera, put together scoreless outings in his first two appearances before blowing a four-run lead in a loss to the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

Soriano was nowhere to be found in the clubhouse after the game, drawing the ire of the often-harsh New York media. He finally appeared before Wednesday night's game, offering a mea culpa and promising that he'll be available - good or bad - whenever he pitches this season.
