Yankees re-sign Luis Sojo for 1 year, $500,000

The Yanks always bring Sojo back.  For $500,000 why not bring back one of their World Series heroes from 2000.  This is a smart move as it gives the Yankees a good fielding backup at shortstop and second base and has proven the pressure of the big game is fine with him.  This is only a good move though if they do not let Sojo improperly impede the progress of either D'Angelo Jimenez or Alfonso Soriano.  Luis is also a great guy in the clubhouse, which is important to have out of the guys that don't play much.  This is not a move that will make or break the Yankees by any means, but a nice move anyway.
