With the holidays behind us, the next six weeks will be the sprint to Spring Training. Some big name outfielders – Jason Bay, Matt Holliday, Johnny Damon – remain unemployed, and the right big signing could tilt the balance of baseball power. For the Yanks, the moves this winter have come quickly and with an eye toward both 2010 and 2011. Brian Cashman knows which players – both outfielders and pitchers – will be on the market next winter, and he has filled his holes with an eye toward keeping roster and fiscal space available for those better players next year.
Still, the Yanks have a few spots open. They could use a better left field option and maybe some bullpen work. As we head into the second half of the Hot Stove League, what’s on your wish list? Do you want another bat? A live arm? Something else entirely? Personally, I’d love to see Damon return at the Yanks’ price, but I’m not holding my breath there.
