With the big names all signed or ruled out by the Yankees' front office, interest shifts to Michael Morse. He isn't a superstar in any sense, but it's players like him who can keep the Yankees in title contention while shedding payroll.
Everyone knows that guy, and he's the worst. Good thing the Yankees are that guy and may need to start embracing it more.
Russell Martin versus Mike Napoli in an epic battle of who has the most and the worst tattoos. Oh, and maybe the Yankees starting catching job.
Joakim Soria would apparently be interested in signing if the Yankees called. Should Cashman pick up the phone?
The end wasn't pretty, but play of the whole team more than made up for the investments in the individuals.
Phil Hughes pitched one of the best games of his career against the Tigers earlier this season. Two months later, he was shelled off the mound. In his third chance, keep an eye on the fastball velocity.
The Yankees had plenty of chances to grab a win against the Orioles in Game Two, but timely escapes by Wei-Yin Chen are the real story.
Ichiro had one of the best months of his career in September, and while it was amazing, it's almost certainly nothing to bank on.
Robertson has drastically changed his pitch selection in 2012 with some mixed results. Getting back to a strong curveball might be the key to being as dominant as he was last season.
Ace, not an ace, it doesn't matter. CC Sabathia's performance this season has been less than expected this year, and it could be because we know what to expect from him.
Nick Swisher hasn't gotten a hit in a week. All players go into slumps, but a strange shift in where he's swinging could be what's keeping him from turning things around.
Overuse, an overabundance of specialist relievers and set roles has led to some shaky results from the Yankees bullpen. An impact non-specialist is needed and the answer might be in Trenton.
