It's called pouring salt on the open wound. Sorry Zac the Yankees have been signing guys for years without any of your core players being bought out, not this year!!!!!
thing is they never gave grandy an offer
and replaced him with ells
The Yankees have 5 outfielders under contract in Wells, Soriano, Ellsbury, Ichiro & Gardner. They will obviously have to trade or release someone as it is, which is why I can't see them giving 100+ million to Choo. The Yankees aren't even close to done this off season, though.
Wells/Soriano are more DH types and with Tex and Jeter not nimble as before they should be getting time in the DH spot. They should see if Seattle would have interest in bringing ichiro back.
i think Gardner is solid. Always liked him. I keep him and obviously Jacoby. Wonder if the Yanks would use Soriano at 2B?
Yanks need pitching. And then more pitching.
As you mentioned, Soriano & Wells are more "DH types" and at least one of them likely won't be there next year, but Soriano, who is a brutal defender, is definitely not going to 2nd base again.
The Yankees re-signed Kuroda, which will obviously help, and I'm sure they'll sign at least one more starter. Michael Pineda could finally help them this year as well. Despite the loss of Cano, I expect the Yankees to field a team that will be in the hunt next year.
