MLB Winter Meetings
Brian Cashman left the Winter Meetings in San Diego on Thursday without needed pieces for his baseball team, but that doesn’t mean the Yankees are a finished product for 2015.
Both teams have much to do. If they have a successful Winter Meetings, or at least lay the groundwork for some post-meetings deals, then perhaps they can talk about the postseason in a serious manner.
Here is a laundry list of questions Sandy Alderson must face as we get into the teeth of the off-season.
According to WFAN’s Jon Heyman, the New York Yankees won exclusive rights to sign Japanese All-Star shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima. The Yankees now have a 30-day window to complete the signing process.
Sandy Alderson didn’t tip his hand that he was onto some big moves when he spoke to reporters Tuesday afternoon, but he got quite busy a few hours later acquiring three relievers and a new center fielder.
C.J. Wilson may be the most talented starter on the free agent market but the Yankees should turn to other targets if his salary demands are too high.
The Yankees should turn to oft-injured free agent Grady Sizemore to provide competition for corner outfielders Brett Gardner and Nick Swisher and to serve as a left-sided DH.
