Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE
The Yankees have been strangely quiet this off-season, staying out of the Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke bidding, passing up the chance to trade for Justin Upton and generally laying low. Has austerity finally come to the Bronx or is this the calm before the spending storm?
This week the made a few small moves and received some troubling news about one of their star players:
A-Rod may be out longer than the original estimate, meaning Yankees fans will get more Kevin Youkilis than in the original estimate
Our Yankees experts make a valid point, concerning the loss of Alex Rodriguez, namely that Youkilis isn’t the most reliably healthy guy either, and maybe Brian Cashman should back-up his back-up plan.
The Yankees need some help behind the plate and Steve Goldman would have like that help to come in the form of George Kottaras who was claimed by the Royals yesterday.
