No real news for the Yankees this offseason. We continue to hear Cashman say they need to add depth to the rotation, looking for that true #2 to fit in behind CC. But the Yankees refuse to pay (either monetarily or prospects) for available pitching talent. But to be fair to the Yankees I don't believe there has been a pitcher on the market that is a true #2. With that being said, I think the Yankees and Cashman will hold onto their prospects and their money and shop in the bargain bin come January/February and see who the next Bartolo Colon may be (and it be Bartolo Colon again). I think I'm alright with this approach. I would much rather give the in-house guys a chance rather than trade them away for what most would see as a #3 or #4 starter. Now if a guy like Adam Wainwright or Felix Hernandez, etc. becomes available then all bets are off. If they can bring in a true #1 to slot behind CC I think the Yankees have to pull the trigger.
Posada has acknowledged his time in pinstripes is over, but maybe not his career as reports of the Rays and Phillies have them interested in the over-40 backstop.
A-Rod went to Germany to get a procedure done on his knee, similar to what Colon had done to his arm. They took A-Rod's blood from his arm, put it in a centrifuge and then injected it into his knee. The procedure was cleared by the Yankees and the commissioners office. So this should alleviate any A-Rod drama around it.
The Yankees will head into Fenway Park on April 20th next year. Fenway is celebrating 100 years next season and as part the Yankees will wear 1912 throwback uniforms. The uniform is road grey, blue interlocking NY on the chest. Grey hat, blue brim, with blue interlocking NY. The socks were traditionally worn high and have alternating red and blue stripes. I want to say this was the first year the NY was worn on the chest. Previously it was on the sleeve and the colors were more blue and red. Yankees have always shied away from these alternate unis, I think it will be pretty cool to see it.
