Grading the New York Yankees’ Offseason Post-Winter Meetings

The sun has been shining and the weather has been warm these past few days in San Diego, California. Most importantly, baseball moves have been made. Every year some of baseball's most powerful people—owners, general managers, managers, agents and of course, players—make their way to the league's annual winter meetings to set the game's hot stove on fire. Getting to head out west and enjoying the temperate weather of "America's Finest City" is just a bonus. Like San Diego's climate, the New York Yankees' offseason has also been relatively temperate. While both Chicago ...

Didi Gregorius Is Perfect Short-Term Option for New York Yankees at SS

In case you hadn't heard, the New York Yankees needed a new shortstop for 2015. Derek Jeter's retirement has left a void that will be impossible for anyone to replace, given his standing with fans and Hall of Fame credentials, but the front office addressed the situation in the best possible way.  Instead of trying to overpay for an older free agent or try to put a marquee name at shortstop simply to placate a fan base that's used to seeing big-money players at every position, the Yankees struck a deal ...

Yankees’ Busy Day Better Be Only the Beginning of Offseason Raid

The New York Yankees landed one of the better free agents in the pond Friday. The problem is he does not make them much better. According to the YES Network's Jack Curry, they caught reliever Andrew Miller with a four-year, $36 million contract to likely be their setup man in front of Dellin Betances, who will be a closer for the first time in his career. Miller’s signing probably takes the Yankees out of the game for their former closer, David Robertson, since he is looking for a similar contract. While Miller ...

Is Didi Gregorius Capable of Being Yankees’ Long-Term Shortstop Fix?

At some point, the New York Yankees were going to have to sign or trade for a shortstop to replace Derek Jeter. On Friday, the Bronx Bombers landed a potential long-term replacement for The Captain, acquiring Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks as part of a three-team trade with the Detroit Tigers, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Though the Yankees were forced to part with right-hander Shane Greene, the hope is that the 24-year-old Gregorius, who will remain under team control through 2019, will be able to hold down the ...

3 Deals That Yankees GM Brian Cashman Needs to Be Chasing at the Winter Meetings

Baseball's offseason is well underway, but the New York Yankees have been unusually quiet. As American League East rivals like the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox bolster up their rosters, the Bombers have stood by idly. That does not mean the Yankees won't make any moves this winter. They have some serious team needs—they desperately need a shortstop and could use another pitcher—that need to be filled. With baseball's winter meetings set to begin Dec. 7 in San Diego, the Yankees will have access to every front office official and ...

Are Yankees Quietly Looking Ahead to Next Year’s Huge Free-Agent Pitching Crop?

It's hard to get a handle on the New York Yankees' intentions this offseason. They apparently want to avoid spending major money for a second straight winter, while at the same time, they're also aiming to improve and avoid a third consecutive year without reaching the playoffs.On one hand, there are recent reports linking the Yankees to Max Scherzer, the right-hander who won the 2013 AL Cy Young and arguably is the top talent in free agency, according to John Harper of the New York Daily News.On the other, ...

Red Sox, Blue Jays’ High-Octane Offseason Could Force Yankees’ Hand This Winter

The American League East is forcing the New York Yankees’ hand.  The Boston Red Sox are making another play to go from worst to first in the division, signing two of the more coveted hitters on the free-agent market in Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez while trying to lure ace pitcher Jon Lester back to the city. The Toronto Blue Jays picked up the best catcher on the market in Russell Martin, just traded for one of the league’s top third basemen in Josh Donaldson and still could re-sign Melky Cabrera, ...

Assessing Likelihood the Yankees Sign Top 3 Remaining Free-Agent Targets

It is Thanksgiving, which means the holiday season is in full swing. With Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez both going to Boston and a few other free agents already signed, it is clear that baseball's offseason is well underway as well. Rumors are swirling and whispers are making their way across the league about which teams are after certain players. However, one team has been unusually quiet: the New York Yankees. It has been two seasons since the Yanks made the playoffs, and their roster is in serious need of some help, so ...

Max Scherzer Is True Ace Yankees Should Scrap ‘Low Key’ Offseason Plan For

A chill in the air, "Deck the Halls" blaring in every department store and the New York Yankees throwing gobs of cash at a top-tier free agent—those are the signs that tell us winter is on its way. This year, though, the Yankees are threatening to break with tradition.  On Nov. 3, as the hot stove was just crackling to life, Mark Feinsand and Bill Madden of the New York Daily News reported that after handing out $450 million in contracts to free agents Masahiro Tanaka, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran last year, ...

Weary Yankees Appear Ready to Give Alex Rodriguez a Most Unwelcome Return

Pass the mashed potatoes, please, while we count our blessings. Family? Definitely. Friends? Absolutely. Food on the table and a roof over our heads? You bet. Mom's homemade pumpkin pie? Yessir (with whipped cream, please). And then there are the New York Yankees. They're thankful for Giancarlo Stanton and his new record-smashing $325 million contract. Because it is Alex Rodriguez's record that he smashed. And now the Yankees no longer are in the humiliating position of paying the largest contract in history to a pinstriped scoundrel. How do we know this? Because Yankees president Randy ...
