The Yankees are good, not great. And that’s probably not good enough, especially when you gauge how they gouge you at the turnstiles. $5 waters and $10 beers don’t taste too hot when the team gets cold and old.
Multiple sources have reported that New York is interested in signing the 35-year-old free agent as the club looks to find a more suitable bat to serve as designated hitter.
“We’ve signed three or four of the biggest free agents on the market, and we’re pretty happy with that,” Steinbrenner said. “…We’ve got some work to do, still. We need another bat. We’re not done yet.”
“I know a lot of people have told me they think home runs are bad,” Cashman said. “I’m not one of them. Well, those people are going to get a chance to see what it looks like.”
Former Yankees outfielder Andruw Jones has been freed on bond following an arrest on a battery charge, according to jail records.
The 35-year-old Jones became a free agent after playing for the New York Yankees the last two seasons, and the Eagles said he is expected to complete a deal after undergoing a physical.
While the ALCS was one-sided, the battle for one of the most desirable free agents is expected to be a lot tighter.
How will Cashman address his aging team? Will he attempt to go younger or will he stick with his older guns? Will he attempt to deal the virtually untradeable A-Rod? Will he re-sign Nick Swisher? As usual, the longtime GM didn’t disclose his plans.
