New York Yankees

The New York Yankees have been fairly idle this off-season. But fear not. Here are five moves that the team should make to give fans a very Merry Christmas.

The New York Yankees have had an interesting off-season that has been given mixed reviews by media members and fans alike. While bringing in a player like Starlin Castro was applauded by nearly everyone, trading away Justin Wilson was essentially panned by most people.

But this is what life is like for the New York Yankees’ hierarchy. The Yankees are arguably the most heavily scrutinized team in all of sports. This includes teams like Real Madrid and Manchester United. No matter what the Yankees do, it is bound to be criticized.

If the Yankees sign Bryce Harper, it will be criticized. If the Yankees hire Bernie Williams as a bench coach, it will be criticized. If the Yankees hire a new batboy, something that has no consequence, it will be criticized.

For that reason, and that reason only, I have decided to compile a top five list of sorts. In this top five list, the plan is to choose five things, either trades, signing, or cuts, that will make the majority of Yankees fans happy.

Here we go.


  1. Aside from the fact that everything on your list except Capuano is 100% totally the exact opposite of what the Yankees should do, I have only one Christmas wish for the Yankees. I wish that God will send down a lighting bolt that whacks both Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi, because as long as either one of them is associated with the Yankees, the Yankees will never win another World Series.
